Three years, more than 750 entries, and coverage of more than 1,000 endangered species ... and yet I feel my work is just beginning.

Extinction Blog continues almost daily updates at the Plenty Magazine website. I hope you'll keep reading and keep taking action.

Thanks for your support over the last three years.

Hey folks -- starting today, Extinction Blog will be published by Plenty Magazine, a great environmental news and commentary magazine for people interested in living a greener life.

It's been three years since I started Extinction Blog here on LiveJournal, and a year since I moved the blog to a different service to try to grow the audience. This will help take the readership to a whole new level. I hope you'll check it out, keep reading, and take the action many of these endangered species need in order to survive.

Not counting a few administrative posts (like this one), Extinction Blog posted its 600th entry earlier today. That's a lot of species at risk, and it barely scratches the surface. Thanks for reading, and thanks for taking action.
