One of our favorites on today's extinction crises is from the NYT shown here. UC Berkeley Advanced Media Institute is a great place to learn how to create data visualizations including workshops, tutorials and online resources.

Name that bird and/or at least one wildflower!! We're fiddling with new technology to more widely share the wonders of natural history in CalNat classes, conferences, and beyond. This week we had the privilege of participating in InterpTech 2016, organized by California State Parks and the National Association for Interpretation at the Mott Training Center in Pacific Grove. Click on the link to see a dizzying Google 360 photo of Point Lobos State Natural Reserve! We promise to practice a bit more in the future!
