The Jellyfish Invasion -- The Slimiest Enviro-disaster Ever

File:Pelagia noctiluca (Sardinia).jpgBy Reilly Capps
Jellyfish are one of god's creations, beautiful and majestic in their own way, but only if their own way is washed up dead on a beach. They're not a fish, they're not even a jelly. Jelly is sweet. These bastards are like raspberry jam covered in barbed wire. They're a sadist's favorite fish. Which is why it's so disconcerting to learn that this non-fish is taking over.

Look at Dead Animals, Save the World (with Your Camera)

Look at Dead Animals, Save the World (with Your Camera)

By Reilly Capps

There are some ideas so simple that they rise to the level of absolute genius, by their sheer simplicity. Idea: match scientists who want data with outdoorsmen (and women) who are in the position to find it. It seems like an ideal challenge for readers of this Journal, who love the outdoors and photography, fear climate change and are in the position to document the natural world. So: step out of your SUV, squat down near that squashed garter snake or flattened cane toad, flash your camera at that pancaked horned lizard or two-dimensional glossy snake, then GPS the coordinates and know that you saved the world, just a little bit.
