Well you wouldn't believe what I stumbled across the other day - I was reading this National Geographic article about researchers in the field who are expressing themselves with their personal blogs now...and came across this wonderful site: Wildlifedirect.org. It has a number of blogs of people studying wild animals across Asia, Africa and South America, and capturing them on film. I mean - these are the people who are actually out there in the field - doing the research, taking photos and videos, collaring and tracking the wild animals and following them on a day-to-day basis. What can be more exciting for a wildlife lover than to read these blogs and interact with their authors - I commented on the Kilimanjaro Lion Conservation Project blog and the author responded on one of my posts.
So I've bookmarked the Wildlife Direct site and if you are passionate about nature and animals - then it's a worthwhile notion to visit this site daily, interact and maybe even donate to support their efforts: http://wildlifedirect.org.
