Me and Darwin, a saw-whet owl.

Me and Darwin, a saw-whet owl


I’m extremely excited to share what has become my life’s ambition with all who are interested enough to venture here.  What I would like to discuss in this blog is all animal life, big and small, and some of the astonishing things I’ve learned about nature.  Naturally, I feel that this is also the perfect place to discuss conservation and the many ways we can work together to protect this awesome wildlife.

About myself, I have a BS in zoology, and I have worked in animal care, science education, interpretation and in research, so I have a wide range of experience in the animal science field.

For the most part, the pictures used in this blog are my own, unless otherwise specified, and are licensed under creative commons.  I welcome folks to borrow my pictures or text, but not for profit and please let me know if you intend on using them for anything formal.  Educators or students working on school projects, help yourself.

As far as the content goes, I will always strive for complete accuracy with the information I have chosen to write about.  I consider myself  a scientist at heart, and I would like to specially request that if you notice anything at all that is inaccurate, even the tiniest detail, please contact me and let me know, so I can research and fix it.  I will always try to include suggestions for further reading, however if you want more information, please let me know and I will share with you whatever sources I’ve used, plus whatever other interesting things I’ve come across and where.  If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.  I am always more than happy to hear from you and to help in any research you’re doing as well.  Enjoy this blog!
