Dinners of Choice for Outdoor Domestic Cats
Lions, tigers, cheetahs, jaguars, and leopards are the main cats that wildlife researchers are passionately driven to study. Their status as apex predators with enormous toe beans undoubtedly contribute to making them the focus of countless research and conservation efforts. Big cats even appear in ancient folklore. But what about the much smaller, yet fierce,…
Throughout my visits to coastal Georgia for fieldwork, I noticed a stark difference in animal life compared to my previous residence in Wisconsin. Animals looked smaller, had different colorations, and some were tropical species I had only ever seen at the pet store. Perhaps it was just the sense of wonder in a new place…

Josh is a conservation blogger and acquaintance of mine from the environmental blogging community here on WordPress. As author of The Jaguar and Allies blog, he has written about a broad range of environmental topics from international…
