Rhinos, Rabbits and Invading Barbeques

Well here's a happy week of articles. There's not a positive story among them. Oh well, that's what happens when you're on the endangered species beat.

First up, two new "Extinction Countdown" articles for Scientific American:

The Last 3 Bornean Rhinos Are in a Race against Extinction

Mesquite Invasion Threatens a Unique Species in India

And next, three new wildlife/climate articles for TakePart:

Rabbits in a Stew as Climate Change Accelerates

Local Craigslist Ads Are Fueling the Slaughter of Elephants Worldwide

A Warming World Means a World Without Animals

Well, that was that. Go take a look at some Spring flowers, a kitten or a smiling baby for a few minutes to cleanse your mental palate.

I'm sure that next week will bring some more positive headlines. Follow me on Twitter for the headlines as they happen.
