It’s the last week of the year, and we all know what that means — it’s time for top 10 lists! From the most popular songs of the year to the most frequent Google searches, there seems to be a list for everything. And I’ll admit I get suckered into reading lots of them.

This got me wondering what a similar list would look like for CI’s blog. So here you go — our 10 most-viewed posts of 2012.

  1. Tagging Giants: Studying Whale Sharks in Cendrawasih Bay (this blog includes our viral whale shark video, which has more than 2.2 million views so far)
  2. 9 Ocean Species You Never Knew You Needed
  3. Costa Rica Leading the Way in Incentivizing Protection of Nature
  4. Adapting Coffee to a Changing Climate in Sumatra
  5. Fishing for New Species in Suriname
  6. CI Photojournal: Cambodia
  7. Rhino Poaching in South Africa, Up Close and Personal
  8. CI Photojournal: The Turtle Islands (Part 2 of 3)
  9. Biologists Update List of World’s 25 Most Endangered Primates
  10. New Amphibian Captive Breeding Center Opens in Madagascar
