Endangered species: Where are they now? The U.S. endangered species list isn’t all gloom and doom — just ask a bald eagle. But for every species saved, another 93 have been added to the list, raising concerns we’re losing wildlife faster than we can save it.
This is a great open data tool to generate awareness about conservation.
“The United Nations Environment Programme has recently turned to the power of the wiki to provide a worldwide picture of wildlife conservation efforts. The new site, ProtectedPlanet, aims to increase visits to and awareness of protected areas. The potential is then generated for increases in upkeep funding and popularity of conservation efforts. ProtectedPlanet links into Wikipedia, Google Maps and the Google photo site Panoramio.”
