You have now entered...the peak migration season.

On any given night during this time of year, millions of birds are flying across our skies on journeys spanning hundreds and even thousands of miles. Sadly, the light coming from our cities and homes can pose serious threats to these birds during their night migrations. That's why we're using #WorldMigratoryBirdDay on May 14th to raise awareness about the negative impacts of artificial light on birds and take steps to "dim the lights for birds at night!"

Teaching Climate? In this activity, students explore the role of combustion in the carbon cycle. They learn that carbon flows among reservoirs on Earth through processes such as respiration, photosynthesis, combustion, and decomposition, and that combustion of fossil fuels is causing an imbalance. This activity is one in a series of 9 activities.

Swimming through rivers in parts of South America and Asia is what one might consider an unexpected figure: the dolphin. River dolphins act as indicators of river health in the basins where they live. If the dolphin population in a river is thriving, then the overall state of that freshwater system is also likely flourishing. But if that population is on the decline, then it’s considered a red flag for the ecosystem as a whole. Get the facts on river dolphins: https://wwf.to/3JFC52H.

THEY'RE COMING! The latest map from hummingbirdcentral.com shows the hummingbird migration is starting to move into Utah through the southwest corner of the state. According to research, a hummingbird can travel as much as 23 miles in one day and the first to arrive are usually males.

Hummingbird nectar recipe: 1 part sugar to 4 parts water. An example of this would be 1 cup sugar and 4 cups water. Make sure the sugar is dissolved either by letting the mixture sit or by warming it up.

The round-tailed ground squirrel knows all too well what it’s like to get mistaken for someone else. They're often mistaken for prairie dogs when they stand on their hind legs to scope out a good meal. Prairie dogs are much larger, the round-tailed ground squirrel weighs in under 200 grams! (200 grams is about a cup of sugar)

Bison are critical to healthy grasslands in the Northern Great Plains. Without the balance provided by grazing animals like bison, woody vegetation like trees and shrubs become more common, altering the landscape in ways that are less compatible for the species that once relied upon them. In 2020, after an absence of 140-years, bison once again roamed the prairie that is now the Wolakota Buffalo Range, located on the land of the Sicangu Lakota Oyate on the Rosebud Indian Reservation in South Dakota. The Rosebud Economic Development Corporation - REDCO , with support from World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and Rosebud Tribal Land Enterprise (TLE), welcomed the inaugural transfer and release of 100 plains bison (often called buffalo by Native people) from the National Park Service. Barely a year later, the number of bison on this 27,680-acre parcel of tribal land has risen to nearly 800 animals thanks to the hard work of REDCO’s staff and the support of a broad network of partners and donors. In 2021 signs of improvement were already appearing on the land. There were reductions in bare ground at several sites and improved ground cover—the native grassland plants were returning. Although the region continues to experience drought, the positive results suggest that there is more moisture in the soil than in previous years. Learn more: https://wwf.to/35A4zgo.
