Every minute, huge quantities of plastic gets dumped in our oceans. What practical steps can we take to avoid this?
A good project…
This 2016 video from Canada is called Spectacular Footage of Great Horned Owl | The Nature of Things | CBC.
From the NestWatch eNewsletter in the USA, October 2017:
The leaves are falling and the owls are hooting. During autumn, juveniles disperse and males stand guard on their territories resulting in increased vocalization among the who’s who of the owl world. Now is the time to build and install owl nest boxes or in the case of Great Horned Owls, a nest cone. Find out what owls live in your region and habitat, and download a free plan using our Right Bird, Right House tool.
Try your hand at our easiest project, a Great Horned Owl nest cone. Why a cone? Great Horned Owls are extraordinarily adaptive in their nest site selection. They use old nests such as those of a Red-tailed Hawk or an American Crow, cliffs, deserted…

The largest insect migration in the world ends each year in Michoacán, Mexico. Millions of monarch butterflies travel from the United States and Canada to pass the cold months in the towering trees of this beautiful forest. On their journey, the butterflies travel around 2,800 miles.
Damage to monarch butterfly colonies in 2016 storm worse than thought
Severe cold, snow, and high winds — and salvage logging that followed — weakened forest that protects declining butterfly
September 17, 2017
A much greater number of monarch butterflies perished in a snowstorm in March 2016 in Mexico than previously estimated, according to new research. Analysis of damage from the storm — and the ensuing salvage logging — sheds further light on the precarious state of the famed butterflies’ overwintering colonies.
Approximately 30-38 percent of the monarch…
