Rare Find: An Inuit hunter in Canada’s Northwest Territory shot and killed the second-known wild “grolar bear,” a cross between a polar bear and grizzly. Scientific American

Musical Arrangement: The first 2,000 Jack Johnson fans who agreed to participate in a Heal the Bay beach cleanup received a free ticket to the Earth-loving singer’s recent Santa Monica concert. Ecorazzi
