Tiny bats, deadly poachers, World Cup mascots and more

Last week I bemoaned the fact that I didn't publish all that many articles. Well, this week made up for it. Not only did a lot of my articles come out this week, they were also extremely popular. That's gratifying, especially since so many of them were so much fun to write.

Let's get to the list, starting with this week's two "Extinction Countdown" articles for Scientific American:

Big-Eared Bat, Once Feared Extinct, Rediscovered after 120 Years

3 New Species of Weird, Endangered Fish Discovered in India, U.S and Colombia

Next up, two poaching articles and one wildlife article for TakePart:

Suspected Poachers Arrested for Murder of Zambian Wildlife Ranger

Poachers Are Taking a Deadly Toll on India’s Rare One-Horned Rhinoceroses

Why is the Brown Pelican’s Population Crashing This Year?

And finally, a big batch of science, explainer and history articles for Mother Nature Network and their family of sites:

How the Navajo code talkers helped win World War II

What is beach restoration?

Meet the World Cup's endangered armadillo mascot

Researcher unlocks cause of deadly brain cancer

You may be able to ditch your glasses, new study suggests

That's it for this time around -- I know, it's enough, right? Make sure to follow me on Twitter for more links as they go live in the coming days.
