Here is a good tip for wildlife photographers that like doing hides next to water holes/spots as also photographing native people, Laurent a naturalist guide in the north pantanal brazil organizes a trip lodging in a native homestay riverside where no other tourists goes and takes you to good places for hides in a cerrado region of the pantanal that is even drier than other places, see more info at www.laurentlefebvre.blogspot.com
Hello everybody, like to watch "updated" video clips of all cultures and landscapes of all Brazilian regions, states and wonderful cities?
On my website, http://brasilinteractivemap.blogspot.com/ (click on the link or just copy and paste), you will find that and many more information.
Brazil, it's huge, it's a giant and offers more than other travel websites show.
Take a look and enjoy!
I have just finished a new blog entry in regards to exciting holiday animal encounters. I have got my personal top ten, but I wanted to know if any of you have any further suggestions!
Any input would be much appreciated. I am not looking for zoo recommendations, but rather first hand animal encounters that you can experience in the wild.
Here's the blog! Any help would be much appreciated.
Raja Ampat declares new shark sanctuary, the first in Indonesia: http://blog.nature.org/science/2013/03/07/indonesias-first-shark-sanctuary-raja-ampat-leads-the-way/
I've just heard about what seems to be a reasonably priced and productive birding trip to The Gambia, but this started me thinking about whether it would be the best choice of African countries for seeing most/best birds. Or, if others are better, what is the best place for birding in Africa?
X-posted in the Africa branch a couple of days ago. I've received some good responses, but realized that members on this branch might elicit a few more, and members on this branch might want to look at other thread as well.
I had been to Ranthambore in Feb 2013 and thought of sharing the wonderful experience with you. There were too many safaris (nine in total) and too many photos to include it in detail in the forum here. Therefore I'm giving a brief snapshot here. Detailed experience of each safari along with photos are given in my travel blog, http://thewildlifephotoblog.blogspot.in/ , for those interested. I'll be glad to help you with any queries that you may have.

http://www.allaboutbirds.org/birdingfestivals which is sponsored by the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology, includes the 2013 Spring migration calendar of most Birding Festivals throughout the USA, starting in Florida this month, including Cape May, Acadia National Park, Arcata, Stikine River, Tongass National Forest, and Kachemak Bay, Homer, Alaska. It does not include the Copper River, Cordova, Alaska, festival, which is one week previous to that in Kachemak Bay and has thousands more birds. During Spring migration, many passerine birds and waterfowl fly low over Turnagain Arm and then over Anchorage, Alaska, before heading over the Glenn Highway and Parks Highway into interior Alaska. They fly at dusk and may be seen by commuters after work or early in the morning at dawn.
Passerine birds, waterfowl, sandhill cranes, and raptors flying north from the Midwest fly along the Titina E... more »
What is the type of cactus that grows as big as a tree? They grow in the shape of a tree as well.
I saw two of them on Cyprus.
I am not sure if someone already wrote something about it, but I would like to recomand some places to visit in Bosnia, especially for those who like pure and nature sceneries.
Whole country is in fact a big national park, and if you just go few kilometres from any main road, you will experience beauty of the countryside. If you are photographer, a lot of amazing things waiting for you.
Some of them you can check on my blog but the best solution is to check some destination by yourself.
My recomandations are mountain lake Prokosko, old town Pocitelj, Jajce town with lake, Bjelasnica mountain and Hutovo lake (birds preserve) more »
I'm looking to volunteer this summer with my 18yr old daughter. We want to get up close and personal with animals. Duration 2 weeks ....would appreciate some recommendations about wildlife sanctuaries or organisations where the money is genuinely used for animal and wildlife conservation.
