I missed posting this for Earth Day, but I figured better late than never.. I’d say it’s not like the Flood is coming tomorrow.. but given the state of the world… you never know…
If you haven’t already discovered it, ARKive, Images of Life on Earth is a vast collection of pics and video of endangered and threatened animals. In giving special recognition to “Earth week,” I came upon this in my (constant) search for cool animal videos for the 5-year-old. The stuff on this site is superb.
Backed by the BBC and many noted wildlife film makers and photographers, ARKive boasts the largest collection of animal imagery on the web. The quality is first rate and the site is loaded with educational resources and information. The video is generally uncluttered by silly narration and eschews the novelty, simply showing animals in action for the splendor of it.
I miss my ferrets… sure, they were Mustela putorius furo instead of Mustela nigripes, but thats what made them so loveable.
