Whilst not strictly a rainforest story, I wanted to blog about the extinction of the Alaotra Grebe. We have lost a species for ever. Shameful.
Why not read Ade Long (BirdLife International Head of Communications) blog post and the associated comments. This is why we must not allow our habitats to be destroyed be it rainforest or any other habitat that species rely on to survive.
