May 2001

We invite you to speak your mind on these hot topics and global issues plucked from the pages of National Geographic magazine. For more on the subject go to the online feature page, or read the May 2001 issue of NGM.

Phantoms of the Night

Both sides lose as jaguars kill cattle and ranchers, in turn, kill jaguars. With jaguar numbers declining from kills and rapidly shrinking habitat, conservation is urgent. How can ranchers and jaguars co-exist? Share your ideas. Enter >>

Mysteries of the Deep Black Sea

Scientists have found evidence suggesting that a flood of epic proportions—perhaps the cataclysm that inspired the story of Noah’s flood—washed over the Black Sea region 7,500 years ago. Do you believe that stories in the Bible are true? Tell us what you think. Enter >>

Deadly Haven: Mexico’s Poisonous Cave

  Refugio Mortal: La cueva venenosa de México

The Fragile World of Frogs

In some parts of the world—including Africa, Asia, and South America—inadequate funding limits research on how frogs are being affected by habitat loss, climate change, pollution, disease, and other factors. How can we expand our knowledge of poorly researched areas before key species disappear? How can we encourage research institutions to turn their focus—and resources—to such areas so that we better understand what species require immediate attention? Join the discussion. Enter >>
EarthPulse: Fueling the Future

New technology serves up numerous fuel alternatives for vehicles: electric vehicles, electric-gasoline hybrids, hydrogen fuel cells, and natural gas. Which holds the best promise for the future? Or should automakers focus on improving mileage and reducing emissions of existing gasoline engines? Share your thoughts. Enter >>
Hip Zips

Nominate your favorite postal code for coverage in the pages of National Geographic. Our new magazine series—ZipUSA—takes a periodic peek at special corners of the country by zip code. We like the concept so much that we’re going global and extending our stories to include international postal codes as well. So describe a weird, wacky, or wonderful locale of your own choosing—it just might make it into the magazine—and read postings from other folks too. Enter >>
