Comments Off on Quirky Sylvester Bird Box Invites Birds to Fly Into the Jaws of a Cat

We love this quirky Sylvester Bird Box ; an amusing take on the traditional birdhouse where the feathered go to roost . Designed by  Suck UK , they constructed the box from durable marine quality plywood that also provides the interior with good insulation. Luckily the box is not too realistic, and when those little feathered sparrows fly into Sylvester’s jaws, they’ll actually find a safe haven away from any lurking cats. + Suck UK Images courtesy of Suck UK Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: bird house design , eco design , green bird house design , plywood , suck uk , sylvester bird box , yard furniture

USDA Researchers Want Airports To Double as Renewable Energy Farms

Comments Off on USDA Researchers Want Airports To Double as Renewable Energy Farms

At airports, the usable space is limited to a few areas: runways, terminals and storage facilities. Much of the rest of the land is left fallow, requiring maintenance from airport operators (mowing the grass, keeping wildlife from interfering with planes, etc). But what if that land could be used to generate energy? US Department of Agriculture researchers have been exploring alternative uses for unused airport land with the goal of reducing wildlife hazards, and in a new study they’ve shown that much of this land could be converted for solar, wind or biofuel production.

Common Seahorse Image from Shutterstock The dwarf seahorse , native to shallow seagrass along the Gulf of Mexico, Florida Keys and areas of the Caribbean, looks set to placed on the endangered species list , in part due to the destruction of its natural habitat. The National Marine Fisheries Service has issued a report backing a petition filed two years ago by the Center for Biological Diversity , which claims that the diminutive seahorse, the smallest in US waters, could soon become extinct due to a range of threats, from illegal fishing to bycatch mortality and habitat loss, the latter of which has accelerated with frequent oil spills (including the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster ).
