Wolves, Cicadas & Angry Birds
This week had three Extinction Countdown columns for Scientific American, instead of the usual two, but there was some breaking news (the wolf story) that needed covering:
Extinction Likely for World's Rarest Bear Subspecies
Wolves Lose Out to Politics, Removed from Endangered Species List
Possum-killing poison helps protect New Zealand parrot
Both of my stories for Mother Nature Network last week stayed on their top ten most-read list for several days:
The dog that helped take down Osama bin Laden
13-year cicadas wake up, prepare to swarm in Georgia and 11 other states
Green Hands USA has had to cut back a bit while they work on closing some necessary sponsorship deals, but if the readership counts on last week's blogs are any indication, that shouldn't be a problem for long:
6 Simple Ways to Green Your Dinner
Save Energy (and Money) this Summer with these Tips from the EPA
Angry Birds Game to Help Endangered Birds
Macy's: No More Unsustainable Hangers!
This week should bring a few new features, as well as more of the same. Stay tuned for more!
