Introducing Conversations from indy100: Your voice - amplified
Conversations from indy100 Community Guidelines

Today, we're announcing the launch of Conversations from indy100 - a new platform for people to share their thoughts and experiences in a meaningful way.

Sometimes what you have to say doesn't fit into a social media post, especially when you want to have a more considered, nuanced discussion. This is a space where you can have exactly that kind of conversation.

You can now submit posts on the subjects you care about, that you believe people should be reading about. From COVID-19 to the US election, Black Lives Matter to Pride, we want to hear from people who have something to say.

But it's not just politics. Maybe you want to tell the world about an easter egg you spotted in a new TV show or explain exactly why you love your favorite band so much. This is your chance to write about what you care about.

The best posts will be shared across indy100 and our social media accounts. Outstanding and frequent authors also have the chance to be featured on The Independent, one of the world's biggest quality news brands, and may even be invited to write separately for them.

Sign up here, write your first post, and start the Conversations.

We need to stop keeping reptiles as pets. It puts us and them in danger

Florida is scrambling to protect threatened gopher tortoises and burrowing owls from the green iguanas invading their burrows.

By Liz Cabrera Holtz, Wildlife Campaign Manager.

Florida is scrambling to protect threatened gopher tortoises and burrowing owls from the green iguanas invading their burrows. Red-eared sliders, a turtle with a native range through the Midwest and as far east as West Virginia, are now threatening other turtle species both here and across the world.

And just a few months ago, an escaped venomous zebra snake terrified a Raleigh community and made international headlines. In every case, the wild pet trade is to blame.

Our selfish desire to keep reptiles and other wild animals as pets is jeopardizing local ecosystems and pushing multiple species to the brink of extinction. It's also endangering our health.
