Been quite some time since I've written anything. I used to do a decent amount of science outreach on this site, but due to a very busy schedule, writing science posts is something that I don't have the time for. However, I've started photography as a secondary career and means of inspiring interest in the natural world. I hope that these photos do so for you.

Will turn this into a regularly sporadic series.

The worldwide plight of the Felidae is well known. Tigers are down to a mere 3,500 individuals. Snow leopards may have only 3,500-7,000 representatives. Cat conservation faces numerous problems, including habitat loss, depletion of prey bases, human-livestock conflict, and an extensive Asian black market for wildlife parts.

However, numerous organizations are facing these odds and working to make a difference at large and small scales across the world. Given that much of their effort is unsung, I would like to use this series of posts to expose some of their work to the large audience that KOS provides.

Note that while I am pursuing felid conservation as a career, I have no tie to any of the organizations I will be featuring in these posts.

Well readers, it's been a long summer. Amongst other things, I spent two months working the famous Egg Mountain site with the Museum of the Rockies, submitted (and revised) a review paper on the Spinosauridae, and slightly altered my career trajectory by switching to an Ecology and Evolution major. So, though updates may be periodic, expect updates on life in all its forms, ancient or modern.

In the mean time, here are some pictures of my various adventures. All photographs, with the exception of the first two (for obvious reasons) were taken by your humble author.

Taken from my normal blog, but hopefully will be enjoyable all the same. Outlines some of the problems paleontologists face when interpreting ancient trace remains.

An Atheist's Manifesto.

A piece I've written for our campus newspaper. Not the Prehistoric Weekly series (I've been too busy to put anything together), but hopefully this will at least please your appetite until I do find the time. ;-)

First real entry in quite a while! Should be able to get some relatively stable posts in over the next month or so, then it's back to 'variably whenever possible.'
