week in pictures photo feb 10

From the news that Amazon River water is being stolen and bottled abroad to a recent documentary that shows a killer whale taking on a great white shark, a lot happened the week in green. A rather unfortunate-looking but aptly-named blobfish (Psychrolutes marcidus) is threatened with extinction, Xie Yan, the China Country Program Director for the Wildlife Conservation Society, estimates that fewer than 50 South China Tigers are left in the wild, and Lord Howe Island, 800 miles off the coast of Sydney, will soon be darkened as helicopters pour 42 tons of rat poisoning over the tiny island paradise. Find out what else happened in the world of green this week in our photo roundup of most popular, most important, and most oddball stories.
