U.S. Latinos Embracing Vegan-Mexican Cuisine; and Your 5-A-Day

    1. There are 311 threatened species protected under the Endangered Species Act. The Trump Administration wants to narrow the definition of “threatened” to a case-by-case basis and bar the sage grouse and burying beetle from the endangered species list for 10 years. [Vox]
    2. Latinos are more likely to develop Type 2 diabetes than whites. Their families (and family restaurants) are rallying around them and going vegan. [NPR]

  1. 3,300 baby birds were grounded after flying into lights from one salt mining company in Chile over the course of just three months. [Atlantic]
  2. Cats have contributed to at least 63 extinctions around the world. There’s a $1.5 million conservation effort underway in the District of Columbia to count all of the city’s feral and house cats. The estimated completion date is 2021. [New York Times]
  3. Termites half-a-centimeter long build covered walkways up to 230 feet long by eating the grass, vegetation, and cow poo in their way. The result is a network of 4-inch-wide corridors that works like one big superorganism. [Popular Science]
