Cute baby animals (female Nigerian dwarf goats) + shell game (uncooked pasta under cups) = "a higher stage of object permanence development that no other nonprimate mammal is known to have"
Small ungulates perform better at task than any other nonprimate animals

Conservation  - 
 
"Indonesian laws passed in the 1980s and 1990s were designed to stop people from collecting the bright, beautiful, and rare Bali starlings from the wild. Instead, the birds became popular gifts among Indonesia’s elite. More and more birds were stolen from their remaining habitats until they were declared extinct in the wild in 2006."
A scientist finds that efforts to preserve imperiled wildlife can backfire unless conservationists take local cultures into account.

Women around the world prove science isn't just for 'boys with toys'
From Mashable: Female scientists have joined together to disprove one astronomer's thesis: science is just "boys with toys." Shrinivas Kulkarni, an astronomer who teaches astrophysics at the California Institute of Technology, made waves this weekend after he was quoted by NPR as saying, "Many scientists, I think, secretly are what I call 'boys with toys.'" That casual remark, included in an otherwise unremarkable interview, quickly set off a powerful reaction from women (and men) in the science community who took to Twitter to highlight how tone deaf it is to continue talking as though women have no role in the field.

Scientists from around the world shared dozens of images of women "playing" with microscopes, telescopes, Mars rovers, water pumps and more.

"Roughly 35 percent of homes in that Southeast Asian region keep birds as pets. People love the sound of their singing and build them elaborately carved mahogany cages. But they prefer the birds to be wild caught, and the more unusual the better. The result, according to a new study in the journal Biological Conservation, is that wild bird populations are being drastically reduced, and some species are probably being driven into extinction."
The booming Indonesian pet trade threatens to wipe out increasingly rare species.

It's not a scientific study, but CA is comparable in size (it's bigger than Italy, Japan, Germany, or the UK) and population wise (a little less) to other countries. There is the bias that climate-wise it's well suited for solar power. The stats are per person or per GDP where applicable.

Almost 90% of the world's palm oil comes from Indonesia and Malaysia. Deforestation is endangering Sumatran tigers and will soon wipe out orangutans. Many foods and cosmetics we eat and use contain palm oil that has been harvested in ways that are severely detrimental to the environment. Don't buy anything with Palm oil: (anything with “palm” or “palmate” in its name, e.g. sodium palmate)!
Dunkin' Donuts decides to get out of the unsustainable palm oil business.

I study habitat fragmentation in relation to extinction.

"I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment... and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance than I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn."
