Blog review: Free Nature Blog

This is my dream blog ! Well… you know. Anyway, this blog is contributed to by avid outdoorspeople, naturalists and adventurers from around the world. Contributors tell stories, discuss natural history and debate identification of sightings, “no! that’s not possible you couldn’t have seen a cougar in nova scotia.”… you get the idea.

An added feature of this blog is that there is sort of a photo journal as well. Users can add pictures from the time spent in the outdoors.. A section of the photo blog is dedicated to animal tracks. There is one photo of heron tracks… who would ever think to look at the tracks of a heron, some people may not even put two and two together and not consciously realize that herons even make tracks! We are always so much more interested in the big, powerful and charismatic – be it the biggest and most powerful computer or the big grizzly bears in the forest! What is wrong with us?

    So is it one of the new way to do nature interpretation?

    yeah, you’re totally right… the only problem is getting people to these sites. At least with parks and museums they are publicly known and fairly well advertised. But you have to seek out a blog.

    Herons don’t tend to eat people nearly as often as grizzly bears do.
