Namdapha National Park is part of the Indo-Myanmar biodiversity hotspot. However, locating many species in the park is becoming increasingly difficult, the region has lost thousands of hectares of forest in the past decade, and studies project the situation may simply worsen in the coming years.
The US Fish and Wildlife Service will terminate use of Neonics and GMOs in most wildlife refuges by 2016. Let’s hope this is the start of a change across the US Department of the Interior, the largest manager of US public lands. It will be a struggle; Bayer, Monsanto, Syngenta, and the other large producers of pesticides and/or GMOs will oppose the change with millions of dollars spent on politicians and leaders of the Interior Department’s nine bureaus.

After many years of wanting to, we finally installed some solar-powered pumps and livestock water tanks in our family prairie. (Thanks to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Nebraska Game and Parks for providing cost-share money!) Those two water … Continue reading →

Hallmark is promoting IVORY as a 14th wedding anniversary gift on their website and posting this blatant falsehood: “Many pieces of beautiful jewelry showcase ivory shed naturally from animals. Look online for options. Continue reading →
While environmental change may crimp food production, that has little to do with current food shortages, We're currently overproducing food crops and throwing them away on our habit of raising animal flesh in the cruelest and most efficient possible way, Globalization means that in the end, your food dollar competes with the food penny of the desperately poor. Your revealed preference in the marketplace is to eat large amounts of meat and dairy products and starve five poor people rather than […]

But during an expedition to the Kermadec trench off the coast of New Zealand in April, Alan Jamieson from the University of Aberdeen, UK, and his colleagues filmed a living Alicella gigantean for the
Of course, in the Southwest we can't plant more trees because the supply of water is dwindling. Over the past year, I've had to turn six large native cottonwood trees into wildlife woodpiles. Cottonwoods are phreatophytes whose roots draw on groundwater. If nearby wells withdraw so much groundwater that the water level sinks below the reach of the roots, the trees will die. The demand for groundwater where I live is growing along with the local population. More trees are dying and will […]
