Hello Readers! Kat is just back from covering the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival! While there, she was tasked with spreading the word about Izilwane, reviewing films, meeting key conservationists to arrange future contact, interviewing delegates and blogging about her experiences. While she had a great time, it was a lot to take in! She is writing about the trip over at Izilwane’s blog; you can see her first post here.
Continue checking back with Izilwane for updates on the festival!
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.
We just wanted everyone to know that Kat had an article published yesterday at Izilwane about the effects of ecotourism in Egypt. She addresses not only the immense promises with which ecotourism seduces governments and NGOs, but also the pitfalls, controversies and lack of regulation of such tourism schemes, as well as how they effect indigenous populations and local economies. We would love it if you all headed over to Izilwane to read the article, which can be found here. Check out the site, leave some feedback, post some arguments… and, of course, enjoy!
Thanks! – Jonmikel and Kat
