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.

The lighter side of the ESA

Introducing another feature on ESA blawg... humor.  Let's face it.  The ESA is a pretty dark topic.  Species on the brink of extinction, and periodic bad news.  So, whenever the darkness gets to you, consider embracing the ultimate human coping mechanism, and check out the cartoons and other links TBD in the lower right side column.  When you do, be sure to visit the University of Iowa Digital Library site on the editorial cartoons of pulitzer prize winner J.N. "Ding" Darling, an accomplished public servant and wildlife conservationist honored by a National Wildlife Refuge in Florida bearing his name.  See also prior ESA blawg (April 2, 2008).  Ding's cartoons are reproduced courtesy of the Ding Darling Wildlife Society.
