Sightings of black colored canids in Central and South America are quite rare. Scientists from NatureServe member Instituto Biótropicos recorded the first ever sighting of a black-colored Maned Wolf in Brazil.
We sat down with Kathy Abusow, President and CEO at Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI), to learn about her passion for the forestry industry, what everyday people can do to make our forests more sustainable, the importance of diversity in the sector, and much more.
To achieve the goal of sustaining healthy, diverse, and resilient coastal and marine habitats and living marine resources in the Northern Gulf of Mexico, resource managers need a way to take the pulse of this vast ecosystem, to evaluate its health and its ability to provide needed ecosystem services.

In support of natural resource agencies in Canada, the USA, and Mexico, we report on a series of component analyses and an updated continental-scaled Landscape Conservation Design for temperate grassland conservation. We targeted twelve major grassland ecosystem types that occur across the Great Plains and Chihuahuan Desert regions. Component analyses included: a) documenting long-term trends in extent by grassland type, b) identifying species of concern associated with the major grassland types, c) documenting current protected areas including each grassland type, d) assessing landscape intactness and connectivity among grassland areas, and, e) identifying Grassland Potential Conservation Areas to advance grassland conservation.
