Eggs on Ice: Frozen Zoos and the Quest for Conservation


For your time, here is a picture of some cheetah cubs born May 28, 2011 at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute (SCBI) that wasn’t included in the article. Credit: Lisa Ware, Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute

If you’ve been following my blog, you know that I’ve been mainly posting articles I wrote for The Wildlife Society (TWS). My summer internship as an Editorial Fellow was wonderful; I learned the ins and outs of a small magazine operation, wrote a lot (in almost every coffee shop in Boston, it seemed), and discovered that I really like writing and working for non-profits. The only downside was that it was unpaid, but I’m fortunate enough to have a partner with a well-paying job who was willing and could afford to pay our rent for the summer so I could take this opportunity.

I’m sad the internship is over, but I’m looking forward to the new experiences to come (as a paid freelance contractor for TWS!). My final article for TWS is a feature for their fall issue of The Wildlife Professional. A few of the articles are open-access on their website, and mine is one of them. So without further ado, introducing Eggs on Ice: Frozen Zoos and the Quest for Conservation.
