National Geographic. The Gold Standard In Conservation Information

October 23, 2010

National Geographic is one of those institutions that seems to have been around forever. And regardless of their original motives, they have grown into  one of the most powerful pro-conservationist organizations in the world.

They tell amazing stories of the people and creatures that populate our planet and they have done more to inform the world of the fragility of the ecosystem that connects us all to each other and the earth.

Through their highly rated TV specials, IMAX movies, video sales and to a lesser extent, their monthly magazines, they are able to reach millions and millions of people around the world with what is a very positive message. They are truly an important part of the solution.

Their web site, like everything else they do, is strictly first class. Simple, elegant and straightforward and one of the sites I actually enjoy visiting on a regular basis. Because it makes me feel more connected to the world at large.

For anyone who wants to stay informed about the world and all the truly important things that are going on it it, this site is a weekly must-visit.

How small town Canada is going green. It’s a real source of inspiration for the green movement how smaller towns, communities and municipalities are establishing and remaining remarkably committed to green initiatives. They say every little bit helps and it’s true.

The One Million Acts of Green Site, sponsored by Cisco Systems is a really good example of how big business is getting behind the green movement. Not so sure what the CBC has to do with any of this, but there you go. It’s an interesting and informative link nonetheless.
