Carol: Hi Hurst! Happy belated Earth Day. Did you celebrate big?
Hurst: You know I did. Aside from eating copious amounts of celebratory cake, I looked into some things I can do to help the Earth in my daily life. One of my favorites that I found was the search engine Ecosica, that plants a tree with every search!
Carol: I don’t think people really eat cake on Earth Day, but more power to you. That sounds great, we do plenty of searching for Creature Feature each week, we could probably plant our own forest.
Hurst: I have to tell you about my favorite story this week. A new study came out that used information from citizen scientists in our own backyard of Raleigh, North Carolina, to determine if multiple carnivore species could coexist in urban areas.
Carol: That sounds fascinating, what did they find out?
Hurst: You will have read to find out carni-more!
Carol: Oh wow that was bad, even for you.
