News Roundup

  • Papua New Guinea is getting its first national conservation area.
  • WCS is getting some money from the World Bank and GEF to protect tigers. Weird, since pretty much the entire WCS tiger team moved to Panthera a couple years ago..
  • Patagonia employee gets paid time off to bike over 2,000 miles to promote Yukon2Yellowstone project. Blogs about it, with pictures.
  • Andy Revkin finally pushes back against George Will. I have to say, the fact that this is such a big deal — that a major columnist is trying to deny climate change — is actually pretty encouraging. I think in years past, Will just would’ve gotten away with it.
  • Dave Connell, associate director of marketing at TNC, wants you to know how important marketing is to conservation.
  • Obama’s restoring the old ESA rules.
