My recent piece – Lethal algae blooms – an ecosystem out of balance – published on The Guardian looks around the globe, from the United States to the Baltic and beyond, as toxic algae formations are part of a concerning trend linked to farming practices and our climate crisis.
In 2011 , I was lucky enough to publish a series of essays from my time at Mongabay, titledLife is Good: Conservation in an Age of Mass Extinction. The compilation received a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly. The review praises the book, saying “Overall, the collection manages to raise environmental alarms without falling into hopeless predictions of doom. And Hance urges a knowledge- and science-based approach to conservation, while also exhorting readers to allow themselves to feel a sense of awe when interacting with other creatures.”
New York Times best-selling author Sy Montgomery edited the latest edition of this popular book series. It is a huge honor to have my Mongabay piece The Great Rhino U-Turn selected for this prestigious anthology.
In my four-part series for Mongabay, I interviewed 24 entomologists and researchers on six continents working in over a dozen nations to determine what we know regarding the mass loss of insects across the globe.
