Eco-Now is written by Daniel Hudon, with occasional guest posts, as indicated. The aims of the blog are to raise awareness about the human footprint on the environment and the consequent species loss. It was begun in 2010, the International Year of Biodiversity, and popular topics include endangered and extinct species, sustainability and current environmental news topics, individual action and ways for us all to tune in the natural world and its beauty. Comments are always welcome. Emails can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Some of my other writing links can be found at people.bu.edu/hudon.
