Rhinos, Tigers and Sharks (Don't Cry)

This was a bad week for wildlife. Well, mostly. I wrote three new "Extinction Countdown" articles for Scientific American, all of which updated stories I have previously covered and only one of which could be considered semi-good news:

Another Northern White Rhino Dies--and Then There Were Four (this was also translated into Spanish)

Bangladesh Has 75 Percent Fewer Tigers Than Expected

Giant Squeaker Frog Gets Ready for Cries of Joy

The bad news continued at TakePart with this batch of climate and wildlife articles, although the last one actually is pretty cool and hopeful:

Drought Is Making Climate Change Even Worse

Sharks Are What's for Dinner, and That's a Big Problem

Waving the Flag for the Grizzly’s Return to California

That's it for this week. I should have a couple of new technology articles coming up in the next few weeks, along with a whole bunch of new wildlife articles, so follow me on Twitter for the headlines as they happen.
