Endangered bird hatches from egg held together with glue, tape
From repairing crushed eggs to developing alluring perfumes that encourage breeding, conservationists are determined to save New Zealand’s rare kakapo.

Why go to this much trouble? You won’t believe how hard these birds are to save.

A newer twist on electron microscopy, developed in the 1980s, can reveal the internal structures of nerve cells. Researchers use a detergent to remove the cell membrane. Platinum and carbon are deposited onto the exposed surfaces to reproduce the cell’s interior features as a three-dimensional mold, which is then examined in the microscope. This image shows a hippocampal neuron that has been stripped of its membrane to expose the cytoskeleton, a scaffold that regulates the cell’s growth and movement.

And now a public service announcement from the Night Vale Marine Biologists Association:

'The ocean is full of things that would like to kill you. And other things that would ignore or not understand you, and then eventually kill you. Because they do not have the same understanding or valuation of life and death as humans. There are still other things that you would probably kill, simply because you think they are beautiful, and you want to possess beautiful things because you believe that beauty and sentience are mutually exclusive.'

'Never go to the ocean. It is a confounding place. It is full of death, and strife, and terror. We’re marine biologists, and we won’t even go to an ocean, so you know it’s bad,' the PSA reads.

'Maybe just take a nap and think about clouds until they find your body.'

This has been a message from the Marine Biologists Association.
