This blog is for those of you who love our planet Earth. With billions of people inhabiting Earth, our resources are getting gobbled up at an alarming rate. The resources are limited so conservation of these is very important. My personal interest is with wildlife conservation. One of my goals is to get people interested in this and other issues through education. The more people involved and educated about conservation the better our chances at preserving what we have. If you have any news, updates, resources, or thoughts that you would like to share I would love to hear about them!!!

If you have watched the news at all recently you have probably seen this little guy, the panda cub born recently at the National Zoo. He was actually born July ninth but they are so small when they are born that zoo officials didn't allow the first viewing by reporters until now. If you want to see him in action you can go to http://nationalzoo.si.edu/Animals/GiantPandas/default.cfm
Zoos are an integral part of the conservation of animals. Zoo's preseve biodiversity by saving threatened species from extinction and when possible they reintroduce animals into the wild. Zoos worldwide operate as a close-knit network to coordinate conservation efforts.
