Lion tacos, condor controversy and killer diseases

What a week. I sure stirred up some discussion with this week's articles. Meanwhile, I found myself hard at work on several articles that won't appear for at least a couple of months. Freelance writing is sometimes all about immediacy, but other times it's about the slow burn.

Let's start this week's link list with three Extinction Countdown pieces for Scientific American:

Lion Meat Tacos (You Read That Right) Are the Latest Threat to Conservation

Does Controversial Decision Pit California Condors against Wind Turbines?

The Last 50 Corroboree Frogs and Other Links from the Brink

As usual, Mother Nature Network kept me busy writing about a wide range of topics:

Plants resurrected after 400 years under a glacier

Middle Eastern virus called 'threat to entire world' by World Health Organization

Is this grainy sonar image actually Amelia Earhart's long-lost plane?

Apple hires former EPA chief to head green efforts

Last week also saw a few reprints at the Huffington Post and Business Insider.

This coming week will definitely see more from SA and MNN. We'll see if any of other long-in-the-works articles appear as well!
