Volunteering and Turkeys

Goggle, gobble.
Happy Post-Thanksgiving Monday! This week's headline recap is on the light side, thankfully, because publications slow down during the holidays. That meant just two new articles of mine came out last week -- although I worked on quite a few more. Look for those in the coming weeks, but for now, here are last week's stories.

I'll start with my latest for IEEE-USA InSight:

Engineering for Good: Help Make the World a Better Place by Putting Your Skills to Works as a Volunteer

And here's a short, holiday-themed piece for Extinction Countdown at Scientific American:

Thanksgiving Species Spotlight: Waigeo Brush-Turkey

That's it! I hope you still have some delicious leftovers for lunch today. Enjoy, and come on back next Monday for what will likely be a much longer list.

Two Orange Species (and a whole lot more)

Hello and welcome to another Monday morning link list, showcasing my articles from the previous week. This time around we have four articles for two publishers, one of each has to do with a predominantly orange species.

Here are the first two, for Scientific American:

Tiger Farms Linked to Massive Surge in Illegal Trafficking

New Technology Reveals Hundreds of Bird Species at Risk

And here are the final two, for TakePart:

Palm Oil Kills Orangutans, but Can the Industry Help Save the Great Apes?

Burning Less Coal Means Less Mercury in Your Tuna

This is Thanksgiving week here in the States, so there may not be too many new articles published. On the other hand, I have quite a few in the queue at various publishers, so who knows when they'll all appear. In any case, come on back here next Monday for another list, as long or as short as it may be.

Elephant Butts and a Whooping Crane Whoops

Happy Monday, dear readers! It's time for another linkfest with all of my previous week's articles. No big theme this time around, just some good stuff.

Let's start with two new articles for TakePart, one of which has to do with endangered species, the other of which covers interesting new technology:

New Zealand Has the Most Seabirds on the Planet, and 90 Percent Are at Risk

You’ve Heard of Self-Driving Cars. Now Here Comes the Self-Driving Scooter

Next up, my latest for Audubon:

The Saga of 16-11, a Star-Crossed Whooping Crane Now In Mating Rehab

Finally, here's yet another elephant-related article for Scientific American:

Asian Elephants Help Seed the Forest

That's it for this time around. I have quite a few other articles already in the queue at  various publishers, and even more beyond that in the works. Follow me on Twitter for links as they happen, or come on back here next Monday for another list!

Voting + Elephants, Bats and Penguins

Last week brought a bounty of timely articles, and a few pieces on interesting uses of technology.

The most timely of the bunch was this, my first article for Sierra Magazine, just in time for the 2016 election:

Vote for Biodiversity

Next up, two pieces for Scientific American, one of which is also kind of (but really isn't) about tomorrow's election, while the other was timed for last Monday's Halloween:

How Do You Stop a Marauding Bull Elephant Named Trump? Send in the Drones

Halloween Horrors: The Spectral Vampire Bat

Finally this week, here's a neat new story for TakePart:

Penguin Detectives Wanted

That's it for this time around. Join me next Monday for another list, or follow me on Twitter for headlines as they happen.
