Turtle Love, Deformed Frogs and Sad Bears
This week presented me with a number of wildly interesting wildlife stories. All of these seem pretty bleak at first blush, but read deeper; there are a lot of positive messages hidden inside.
We'll start this little linkfest with my two "Extinction Countdown" articles for Scientific American:
100-Year-Old Turtle, the Last of Her Kind, Could Soon Be a Mom
No Fish, No Fowl: European Fish and Birds in Decline, Despite Some Conservation Successes
Next on the hit parade, this week's articles for TakePart:
A Little Medicine Shop of Horrors for Endangered Sun Bears
Pollution and Climate Change Are Deforming and Killing Alaska's Frogs
That brings our weekly visit to a close. Stay tuned for lots more next Monday -- same Platt time, same Platt station.
