Hello Revelator readers,
On the 50th anniversary of the Endangered Species Act, writer Terry Tempest Williams looks back at what inspired her own conservation journey: a promise to a prairie dog.
Illegal wildlife trade has made the lovely Chinese three-striped box turtle one of the most endangered turtle species in the world. Herpetologist Kim Gray writes about what it’s like to rescue these rare animals.
Our stories rely on insight from experts, frontline activists and readers around the world — especially these days, when so much seems to be happening so fast. We want to hear from you, so please drop us a line anytime.
