Kangaroos that live in trees and other cool things

This week's articles include news about one of my favorite species (the kakapo), a look at a little-known species of kangaroo that lives in trees, great philanthropy from a Buffett, and a cool citizen science project.

We'll start with this week's Extinction Countdown articles for Scientific American:

Sunday Species Snapshot: Goodfellow’s Tree-Kangaroo

Next up, my latest for TakePart:

And finally, a news article for Mother Nature Network:

I have several more articles pending publication this week, and lots more to write, so make sure to follow me on Twitter for the latest links as they happen (or come back here next Monday for the usual weekly list).
