Mountain lions and elk

Who knew we’d have both here in the state of Missouri during my life time. I have to same I’m a little hopeful that maybe one day we’ll have mountain lion cubs here too. The fact that a female showed up is actually pretty cool.

The article where you can learn more about the mountain lions here in Missouri is entitled “Confirmed report of female mountain lion raises questions about the future of the species in Missouri” by over at the . Very cool!

Lost Continent

It always amazes me what science is able to discover. In this case, it’s how they’re able to discover a piece of a lost continent under the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius through the discovery of a rock known as zircons. I’ll be the first to admit, I’ve never heard of it.

Anyway, the article is entitled “3-Billion-Year-Old ‘Lost Continent’ Lurking Under African Island” by Tia Ghose over at LiveScience. Reminds me, I need to go back and check out the book Roadside Geology of Missouri by Charles G. Spencer. Next stop, the library.

Seal survival

It’s nice to see people like these volunteers over in Finland so committed to the environment while still understanding that a long term plan for climate change is needed. Check out this video entitled “WWF-Finland ensuring seals can bank for help” courtesy of World Wildlife Finland.
