Some good news for the Book of Life

L’shana tovah! It’s Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. According to tradition, this is the day where every person’s destiny is written into the Book of Life. Another Jewish tradition is tikkun olam, or repairing the world. In celebration of the holiday and in hopes that tikkun olam will proceed just a little farther in the year 5769, here’s some good news.

  • Biologist Pan Wenshi is saving langurs by helping a Chinese village out of poverty.
  • The Sant Ocean Hall is open at the Smithsonian Musum of Natural History, complete with squid, coelacanth, and bamboo coral donated by DSN’s very own Peter Etnoyer. Hopefully the exhibit will inspire great tsunamis of ocean love.
