Happy Memorial Day, friends and readers. I hope you're taking the day off. I probably am, but we'll see how it all works out. Freelancers don't always get to relax on holidays, and I have several large features working their way toward completion so I should probably be heads-down, fingers-on-keyboard today. But it's early yet, so I haven't decided. Maybe I'll get some work done before the rest of the world wakes up and then spend some quiet, fun time with the rest of the human race.
Anyway, it being a Monday, here are my links to my articles from last week. I'll start with two fisheries-related stories for TakePart:
The Philippines’ Giant Fish Are Disappearing
Squid Are Getting Bigger and Taking Over the Ocean
Next up, two new "Extinction Countdown" articles for Scientific American:
Illegal Pet Trade Threatens 13 Indonesian Birds with Extinction
What do Elephants and Cocaine Have in Common?
That's it for this time around. I'm not sure how much of my work will see publication this week, it being a short holiday week and all, but again, we'll see. Come on back here next Monday for another list, or follow me on Twitter for headlines as they happen.
