Inform yourself! Four interesting websites, three with news-letter sign-ups. I recommend them all.
The first is YaleEnvironment360 and this week it tells us about the social life of reef fish, and how this affects the health of coral reefs. What could be more fascinating!? “These fish pay attention to one another. These fish are potentially able to function ecologically at the community level in a much stronger way when there are more of them around because of this reinforcing phenomenon that we’re seeing.“ It has a sign-up section at the bottom.
Second is EcoWatch, a daily newsletter with several top ecological sorties of the day. Today, among others, it includes reports on CO2 passing 410 for a month, plastic straws, mosquito borne diseases, plastic contaminated beef, and Black Rhinos. You can sign up at the side of the website.
Next, often one hears statements about the value of wilderness, or lack of value. This website dispels 21 myths about wilderness in a brief succinct manner, for instance, “Myth 3: Wilderness is a state of mind, a concept, not a place” Read the myths over, you’ll learn a lot. Read more. . .
The last website, Countercurrents.org, features an information piece about the rapid increase of methane in the atmosphere. It comes complete with interesting graphs and illustrations. It is easy to sign up for their newsletter in the sidebar.
