Cassini Is Gone and I'm Not Crying You're Crying | Our Evolving Earth | Scoop.it
The spacecraft only has a few drops of fuel left, and rather than risk allowing a dead hunk of metal to crash into one of Saturn’s potentially life-harboring moons, NASA decided to send its beloved spacecraft into the object of its decade-plus exploration. It beamed back data until it couldn’t anymore.

Befriending giants

Befriending giants | Our Evolving Earth | Scoop.it

The bond between these fishermen and the whale sharks, in stark contrast with the senseless slaughter by fishermen from the neighbouring village, drives home the point. 


The human connection is central to conservation, without it our efforts will ultimately falter, but by harnessing it we can change the world.

Undercover on a shark fishing boat

Peru is a country of extreme beauty and biodiversity and its coastline is no exception. Unfortunately, such an abundance of wild animal life tends to attract humans who want to make profits. This is precisely what is happening with the lucrative shark fishing industry, where it is common practice for fishermen to use dolphins as bait.    https://youtu.be/f5j1uvPt6VI ;

This is How South Florida Ends | Our Evolving Earth | Scoop.it
It’s a scorching midsummer day, and the sawgrass is still under a pale blue sky. Waist-deep in water and sinking slowly into the muck, I fend off mosquitos as a man from South Florida’s Water Management District mixes a bag of salt into a hot tub-sized bucket on the side of the road. Thirty feet away in the marsh, another city official wearing waders and a bug hat stands on a narrow steel walkway, dangling the end of a long hose over a plexiglass chamber.

Curiosity Has Discovered Something That Raises More Questions About Life on Mars | Our Evolving Earth | Scoop.it
Everyone from David Bowie to astrobiologists to tinfoil hat believers has pondered the question: is there life on Mars? While we’ve found direct evidence of liquid water on the Red Planet, we have yet to find any microbes there. But not all hope is lost—new discoveries from NASA’s Curiosity rover have brought forth more compelling evidence of habitability on Mars. I mean, in theory, all that life has been dead for billions of years, but still.

Why the Brutal Killing of 15 Albatrosses at Ka‘ena Point Matters

Why the Brutal Killing of 15 Albatrosses at Ka‘ena Point Matters | Our Evolving Earth | Scoop.it
After a plea deal, on the eve of sentencing, we take a long look at this disturbing attack.
Eileen Anglin's insight:
Last December teenagers from a wealthy private school were allowed a rare and private view of a sensitive albatross program and their breeding grounds. 

These young men then went back to it and brutally killed the nesting parents. Not only was it calculated, they showed no remorse.

 People feel their wealth and privilage not only stalled any arrests, but that they did not receive the punishment they deserved. 

But we can bear witness to what happened here and remember the names of Christian Gutierrez and his two buddies Raymond Justice and Carter Mesker.
