- Good news for sea turtles — the Bahamas has extended full protection to all turtle species in its waters, where five of the world’s seven sea turtle species live, says EcoWorldly.
- Is that LEED building really green? The New York Times reports that while LEED certifies design and construction, the designation doesn’t extend to the energy-efficient performance of that building. The Vine explains why that’s important.
