1. Gabon For Your Birding Needs

    Peanut Butter the cat takes her birding seriously, and spends as much time as she can studying their habitats, calls, and plumage (so she will know what she's eating!)

  2. Mexico Dress for Success

    On my first day of service at my new site, I reported to the SEMARNAT office in Tepic, Nayarit, Mexico.  SEMARNAT is the Mexican equivalent of the US Environmental Protection Agency, and my assignment was to contribute my experience as a Coastal Engineer to a large wetland restoration project.  SEMARNAT wanted me to help design hydraulics, erosion, and water quality projects. Now I don't mean to brag, but I am a professional Engineer.  The work sounded very similar to projects I had worked on...
