No. 300, August 31, 2023
Hello Revelator readers,
Welcome to the 300th issue of our newsletter. We couldn’t do it without you, our dedicated Revelator readers.
And now, to serve you better in the long run, we’re about to take a break. The year 2024 will be important for the planet, and it’s time to rest up for the long fight ahead. We’ll be back with our next stories, and our next newsletter issue, in mid-December.
Before we go, we have one more news story for you. It’s about jaguar poop — because who says conservation science can’t be fun?
From the archives:
The last time we took a break we offered ideas for 15 things to do before the end of summer — a list that still resonates.
