florida gators... never threatened!

If you ain't a Gator, you should be! Alligators (and endangered crocs) are important indicator species atop their food chains, with sensitivity to pollution and pesticides akin to humans. See ESA blawg. Gator blood could be our pharmaceutical future, too. See ESA musing.


Follow the truth.

"This institution will be based on the illimitable freedom of the human mind. For here we are not afraid to follow truth wherever it may lead, nor to tolerate any error so long as reason is left free to combat it." -- Thomas Jefferson to William Roscoe, December 27, 1820.


Thanks, Kevin.

Dear ESA blawg readers,

For many families, June marks the end of school for the kids. For me, it marked the end of work. Due to Florida's massive budget cuts and the effects on public servants, I am in the middle of a career change, so my blog suffered a temporary setback.

Although the content of ESA blawg slowed for a few weeks, I've engaged in some planning for the long term. Most notably, I am exploring potential partnerships with ARKive, the multimedia guide to the world's endangered species, and St. Thomas University in Miami, where the School of Law this year launched a new LLM program in Environmental Sustaintability.

Bottom line: ESA blawg will be back to form in July! Thanks for your patience.
