Tigers, Elephants and Suckers
Howdy folks. The year is starting to wind down but my keyboard is still clacking away. This past week brought five new articles covering (mostly) wildlife and crime.
Here's the first batch, all for TakePart:
Tigers Face Deadly Squeeze in the Wild (and Deadlier Threats in Captivity)
The Unexpected Places Where Endangered Wildlife Are Thriving
African Nations Commit to Game-Changing Reforestation Plan
And here's the final two, for Scientific American:
The Hidden Crisis Killing India's Young Elephants
Modoc Sucker Recovers, Leaves Endangered Species List
That last one was a little bit tough for me. As a comics fan, I kept wanting to type MODOK instead of Modoc.
I'm at the Marine Mammalogy Conference this week, learning all about whales and seals and dolphins and manatees and other cool critters. That means I won't be writing any new articles this week, although there are at least four in the queue at various publishers. Follow me on Twitter for the headlines as they happen (and maybe a few tweets from the conference).
