Are you up to date on Jeremy’s Misunderstood Mesos articles?

Each article goes over an important mesocarnivore – these animals are crucial members of their ecosystems and often play important roles as primary and secondary consumers. Mesocarnivores help keep their ecosystems stable and yet are often misunderstood.

Check out some of our recent favorites:

Pacific Marten
Pacific Marten are so misunderstood that people thought they were extinct. That is, until 1996 when a surviving population was discovered!
Cownose Ray
Cownose Rays play an integral role in North American coastal ecology. They control bivalve and crustacean populations within one of the most productive marine ecotones.
Atlantic Ghost Crab
Atlantic Ghost Crabs are indicators of habitat health and a key link in the trophic cascade of sandy beach ecology.
