PETITION There's a national park in East Kalimantan called Kutai, home to most remaining moreo orangutans in Indonesia (approx 4,825), 10 other primates, & other critically endangered mammals & birds. Underneath is about 38 mega tonnes of coal, which British 'Churchill Mining' claim to have the rights to. This month Churchill & their investors (Goldman Sachs, Blackrock, Barclays Bank) are taking the claim to a tribunal in Jakarta. They don't care that mining in a protected park is illegal. by gilda

The world's smallest dolphin - the Maui's - needs our help. A new study has just found that there are only 55 adult dolphins left, making it one of the most critically endangered marine species in the world. It lives exclusively off the coast of New Zealand, a nation which markets itself as "100% Pure" - and yet the government is dragging its feet in protecting the dolphin. by eleanor

How the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) protects species around the country will be influenced by how the Supreme Court rules on a singular frog. The dusky gopher frog (Lithobates sevosus), an endangered species that numbers some 100 individuals, most of which only live around a single pond in Mississippi, is the star of this particular case, launched when the FWS designated private land in Louisiana as a potential critical habitat for the animal. by LADY ARCHAEIA HOPE444

Not a fan of your laundry room design? Here are a few quick tips to transform the space from feeling commercial to an inviting space in your home. Adding cabinets and a folding table will create structure and help with organization. For lighting, ambient lighting, such as recessed lights, provides an area with overall illumination, which is ideal for this type of space. Lastly, to give your laundry space life and personality, consider a touch of paint and some accent decor. by katharine

A book is the only place in which you can examine a fragile thought without breaking it, or explore an explosive idea without fear it will go off your face. It is one of the few havens remaining where a man’s mind can get both provocative and privacy. ~Edward P. Morgan by pat-75
