Planting for Pandas

Wild giant pandas in China are struggling because of highly fragmented habitats – due to urban development and deforestation – which makes it difficult for pandas to travel to find food and mates. A collaborative research team, including scientists from the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute (SCBI), has established four bamboo restoration plots to connect fragmented panda habitat with the ambitious goal of accelerating the return of pandas to the area. Recently, scientists found evidence of giant pandas using these plots – promising news for this vulnerable species!

Finding America's Most Secretive Owls

Did you know that northern saw-whet owls are the smallest owls in eastern North America? Because of their secretive natures, for a long time scientists didn't even know they migrated. Enter Project Owlnet, an initiative working to lift the veil on owl movements and biology through banding owls to track their journeys and sharing data and analysis across the country. The Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC) in Edgewater, Md. recently completed its second year as a Project Owlnet station, and banded a total of 54 owls!

Photographing Africa: A Woman's View

The work of 14 women photographers who photographed Africa from the 1930s through the 1970s will be digitized and catalogued as part of a National Museum of African Art project to highlight women's photography in Africa. The effort, part of the Smithsonian American Women's History Initiative, will make collections of photos, negatives, slides, field notes and audio recordings accessible online.
