Rhinos, Ted Turner, PTSD and Forensics

Notice anything missing?
Wow, what a powerful, emotional week. I had a chance to report on a devastating attack on two rhinos by poachers in South Africa, some all-too-rare conservation news, an interesting career, and a painful new study.

First up, my two Extinction Countdown articles for Scientific American:

Video: 2 Rhinos Fight for Life after Their Horns Are Chopped Off  [Make sure to read down to the comments, where some updates have been posted.]

Ted Turner Donates $1 Million to Help Endangered Gorillas

Next up, my first article for Conservation Magazine, which appears in their new issue:

Mini Livestock: Could giant farm-raised rats shrink the bushmeat trade?

Now, my latest career article for Today's Engineer:

Career Focus: Forensic Engineering

And finally, three eye-opening articles for Mother Nature Network:

Study: Veterans with PTSD more likely to be prescribed addictive painkillers

Has Hollywood abandoned the Prius and other green vehicles?

Stay tuned for more!
