From the Field
Cara Byington is a science writer for The Nature Conservancy covering the work of Conservancy scientists and partners, including the NatureNet Fellows for Cool Green Science. A misplaced Floridian living in Maryland, she is especially fond of any story assignment involving boats and islands, and when not working, can be found hiking, kayaking or traveling with her family and friends. Best mammals + herps + birds (so far) in 2018 (all Costa Rica): three-toed sloth and baby (!), fer-de-lance and basilisk lizard, and my new all-time favorite bird ever: Collared Aricari (because it looks like a pterodactyl).
