I am very excited to announce Endangered Living’s first video in our new video blog series “Videos About Your Wild World.” I have been wanting to branch into video blogging for a while now, but I wasn’t quite sure which route to take. This is a short educational video that focuses on bumble dart frogs, a species of South American poison dart frog.
Hopeful within the coming weeks I will get the chance to add some sound and a better title/introduction. But for now, I am proud of my self seeing as I had to learn a whole new version of Final Cut to make this video. I promise if you stick around the videos will only get better in quality from here on out.
Look at that! Dr. Carin Bondar’s name fits perfectly in my title! Not to mention it’s always fun to start off a post with an alliteration, they’re just so catchy, aren’t they! Well it’s been a little while since I featured a fabulous female scientist (there I go again!) and Dr. Bondar has been keeping me entertained on almost every facet of social media this past month. Whether it’s her quirky YouTube videos, her sarcastic Tweets or her down right adorable Instagram feed, she is always up to something entertaining! So lets take the time to honor this science queen and get to know a little more about her.
Today is the age of social media. News papers and magazines are dying and people are now getting their information from places like Facebook, Twitter or… hey! even blogs like this one! Well, besides from online news sources like National Geographic or Science Daily who should you be following to get your daily dose of science? Well, lets take a look at a few of my favorite places gain some serious knowledge.
Woah, woah, woah! What is this? A hump day post? Well, you see, every day when I go online and check my stats I see that ‘dolphins and rape’ always without fail has seen activity, even though it is one of my older posts. So let’s see if cross dressing animals can catch your attention the way my previous hump day posts have.
Yesterday Science Magazine put out a fun little article titled 10 Animals That Don’t Need Halloween Costumes featuring animals that have great camouflage and mimicry! This means that they can blend in amazingly well with their environment and often are trying to look like something (or someone) else! But what I noticed is aside from a picture and the name of the species, there wasn’t much information on the animals! So lets fill in those gaps!
Hey guys! I am officially on Facebook and I would love it if you would follow my page so you can receive updates right to your wall! I also share more conservation news through links to photos and other stories so it’s a great resource for conservation and science news, and sometimes even some humor! So take some time, and click click click!
Yippee! It’s time for hornbills! This one is from Southeast Asia, not Africa, and they are gorgeous! Honestly every single time I see a hornbill (any species) I heard my dad laughing and shouting “Look at the head on that rooster!” which he says to every ridiculous looking bird. It never fails to make me smile. Well, enough about me! Let’s get to the bird!
Many of us hear the word drone and cringe; we picture the military using drones to drop bombs and other negative things. But recently drones are become cheaper and cheaper as the technology becomes commonplace, so what better path for the drone to take than to aide in conservation!
I fall more and more in love with Indonesia at every turn. I am by no means an expert on it, (not yet anyway) just someone who dreams of living the rest of their life in the jungles of Borneo. It seems every time I fall in love with a new species they are close neighbors of the orangutans, whether it be the beautiful hornbills (O.A.P. to come), or even the ever-curious black crested macaque.
Gregg Treinish is described by National Geographic as an adventurer and conservationist. Avid hiker and explorer turned biologist, Treinish began to work doing field research. After wandering the globe studying many species, from sturgeon to lynx, he founded Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation. If you dream of being an avid conservationist but don’t have the wallet, this is a great way to get involved.
