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.
