Time: Vanishing Act
Here is a link to a thoughtful Time magazine cover story on species extinction and climate change. This is a strong, big picture piece that provides excellent context for the importance of climate and conservation work. I met with Bryan Walsh, the reporter, a few months back and he included a quote from our discussion. http://www.time.com/time/specials/packages/article/0,28804,1888728_1888736_1888858-1,00.html
Also see the photos of ten species near extinction at http://www.time.com/time/photogallery/0,29307,1888702,00.html.
Aren't these magnificent creatures?
