Birding

We love to travel to find new birds and participate in a lot of bird counts. We also created a Guide to Birding Field Guides and host a collection of over 200 birding links from all over the globe.

Conservation

While our main focus continues to be birds, we promote other areas of conservation as well. Conserving land not only benefits wildlife, but is hugely beneficial to people as well.

Year of the Young Birder

2013 is officially The Year of the Young Birder! We plan on spending the whole year promoting young birder clubs and sharing ideas on how to help student naturalists become lifelong conservationists.

Biomimicry – The Kingfisher and the Bullet Train

This video comes from Habitat Seven and shows how nature can help solve problems through biomimicry: “the mimicking of life using imitation biological systems”.

An engineer was faced with a problem that would potentially derail the Japanese bullet train but copied the design of the kingfisher to solve it! Definitely worth the watch!
