On the plus side, Mark Ferrari is the one who replied. Which is cool because his art is what gave me the idea to put this thing together. And he has a new website launching in a couple weeks as it turns out, so that's awesome.
Also working on some writings about invasive species, but I'm torn how to go about it. I had written an article on invasive plant species that I thought was pretty fascinating, but the site moderators disagreed. But there are just too many things to choose from to make one list that includes animals and plants together, so I was hoping to break it up to three: vertebrates, invertebrates and then of course the plants. The first rejection has me a little uncertain about how to proceed, while still producing something I'm proud to stand behind.
