"If we hired 100 fishermen to work four hours a day, we couldn't clean it all up. It just keeps coming," says Blake Ross, co-owner of Long Caye, a Caribbean island 47 miles (75 kilometers) off the coast of Belize—which is awash in plastic waste. 
Who left their trash behind on this remote Caribbean island? Then I realized. It wasn’t left. It arrived. An endless flotilla of refuse heedlessly sent from afar. It's heartbreaking. The image of a...

Scientists can learn how far pine beetles fly by tethering them to a "flight mill" and flying them in circles. Explore more images of the fight to halt the destructive insects' spread. 
A warming climate is good for pine beetles--which is very bad for forests.

+Ike Yob Fix the problem! Stop the beetle from spreading within your country & then it would be less likely to migrate.

Still a LONG way to go on reefs... Things change, yet there's no doubt that humans created a lot of this via fads, unchecked fishing, squandering natural habitats, etc. We can do better getting along with nature. Grizzley bears, likely mountain cats, So. Otters, many sharks, larger urchins, sea cucumbers, abalone & so many other species (many we'll likely never know) have been or are being pushed out or hunted to extinction (some nearly so, yet gene pools are sparse) just so someone can have a trophy...
I'm not against hunting for food, as we are part of the food chain & need to eat healthy, fresh foods, Yet we need to do so far more intelligently & not just for a trophy or fishing out entire species for a buck!

By working to protect a particular endangered species of bat, scientist Rodrigo Medellin may also be helping to save something else in danger—your tequila. #FutureofFood
Blue agave, the plant responsible for tequila, is in danger. And maybe endangered bats can save it.

A team of ecologists tracked rare and endangered Ruppell's vultures in Kenya—and discovered that their "movements would make even the most extreme fitness fanatics look like couch potatoes."
Traveling 125 miles by your own power might take a human a week a more to complete. For Ruppell’s vultures, with an 8-ft wingspan, it's a mere day trip.

Missing the discovery folks. These are a hybrid created species. NG did not say that or why it was necessary to create a new species, when extant populations can fill the same roles, and actually need to.
