OK, if you’re wondering what I’ve been focusing on instead of bringing you tales of travel, my company, Izilwane, has been developing stories for National Geographic’s News Watch blog. What should we focus on and talk about? What are YOU, as readers, interested in? So here goes.
Introducing our very first blog (edited and partially written by Kat!): Introducing Izilwane, an environmental magazine! We’d love it if you guys could head over there and check it out!
Izilwane published a new photo gallery from Joel Quimby (written by yours truly!). Expedition: Fossa explores the unique mysteries of Madagascar through the eyes of a photographer. Through Earthwatch Institute’s fossa program, Joel was able to help research and protect this misunderstood — and highly feared — predator. But what truly caught his eye were the Malagasy people and how they connected with the world around them, how they work and play and survive in the deserts and jungles of Madagascar while coming to terms with impacts and demands of encroaching modernization.
One of the most fascinating images features a woman – dressed in colorful, traditional clothing – standing in a field draped in morning mist. She holds a cell phone, inching it higher and higher, hoping to get a signal. Many of these people have no electricity or running water, but more and more have access to cell phones and mobile networks.

Hey everyone, I’m blogging over at Izilwane today! Head over to check out my post, “National Zoo Animals React Before Quake,” about how animals really do seem to be able to predict coming natural disasters. Check it out here.
We have also started a new section of that blog called “News Flash,” which will feature short breaking news briefs. A little bit more formal than our other blogging, but we hope it will draw in some more journalistic interest.
