Who Says Endangered Species Can't Be Funny?

If you're read this blog before, you know that I have two great passions: endangered species and cartooning. Those two topics collided in this article for Scientific American:

Nextinction: Ralph Steadman Goes Gonzo for Endangered Birds

I wrote one other SciAm article this week, but it was slightly less fun:

Frog Mass Extinction on the Horizon

Speaking of less fun, yeah, here are three more downers for TakePart:

When Butterflies Shouldn't Fly Free

China’s Obsession With Pet Turtles Threatens a Rare Philippine Species With Extinction

A Rare Chance to Save an Entire Nation’s Frogs From Extinction

Yes, there were some negative articles this week, but take a closer look -- almost all of them mention the things people are doing (or can do) to turn things around. That's why I do this. There are heroes out there, and there are solutions.

More next week. As always, if you can't wait until then you can also follow me on Twitter, where I'll post headlines as they go live. Some of them may even be fun!
