I really enjoyed this piece. It addresses some important problems like biased research and how our lack of empathy for some species might impact biodiversity and the environment.

"Even scientists are heavily biased towards studying more charismatic, relatable animals. One 2010 study found that, for every research paper published about a threatened amphibian, there were 500 about an endangered large mammal."

We don’t use our dryer anymore. We drive hybrids. I’ve stopped eating meat. I pay a lot of attention to recycling. I Try not to buy anything new anymore but use thrift stores and find used items online. I try to buy local and hardly ever use Amazon anymore. My halo, please.
