It’s Summer and Our Thoughts Turn to…a Polydimethyl…What?

Working for solutions to climate change has long been a focus of Defenders’ work, from mitigation to adaptation, and species-specific attention to broad international policies. In the Center for Conservation Innovation, we both lead cutting-edge science and track scientific and technological advances that offer solutions for wildlife, including solutions to the threat of climate change. So my interest was piqued a few days ago when I saw a new research paper come out: “A polydimethylsiloxane coated metal structure for all-day radiative cooling.” Polydimethyl- what? What does this possibly have to do with wildlife? Find out here!
