The Nature Files is dedicated to sharing science and environment news with people who want to learn something new about ecology and conservation. Swimming through science journals and keeping an ear to the ground for just released “you got to knows” about ecology and our relationship to it is what I love to do.
This blog is mostly “newsie” written, with some pieces more commentary or personally focused. But it’s always centered around showing you something new that is real out there in our big, complex planet called Earth. Check out the links to original sources, leave comments that will add to the debate (constructive please) or link to more information. But most of all, I hope you have fun.
Morgan Heim is a Colorado-based multimedia journalist specializing in sharing the stories of science and environmental issues. An accredited zoologist turned science communicator, she splits her time working with non-profits, research institutes and magazines to help engage the public in wanting to understand our planet. Morgan subscribes to the belief that if you show people how amazing and interwoven the world is, they’ll care more about what happens to it.
