This week, the word with the most increases in searches was . . . marsupial.
It went up in searches by 441%. And, it's all due to the little crest-tailed mulgara found in New South Wales (Australia). This little critter was thought to be extinct for over 100 years! But, (according to Mashable) it "was found by researchers from the University of New South Wales (UNSW) at Sturt National Park near Tibooburra who were working on a project to restore and promote desert ecosystems." We love an uplifting trend!
