Lions and Crayfish and Bears, Oh My

This week's stories typify my work on the wildlife/conservation beat: mostly bad news, with some tinges of good news mixed in.

Case in point, my two latest "Extinction Countdown" articles for Scientific American:

Amazing Discovery: Nearly Extinct Bird Found Breeding in Japan

Conservation Group Seeks Protection for Endangered Crayfish, Gets Newly Discovered Species as a Bonus

...and two new articles for TakePart:

Animal Activists Are Raiding Circuses to Liberate Abused Bears, Lions, and Monkeys

This Is the Only Place in the World Where an Endangered Sea Turtle Is Thriving

Next week: more of the same?
