Lion tacos, condor controversy and killer diseases
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!
