Planet Earth II

Why Evolution Is True

Reader Tyler called my attention to the trailer (published yesterday) for BBC’s Planet Earth II, and it looks fantastic. Watch the 3-minutes trailer, as there are plenty of cool animals, with EXTRA FELID. It will be narrated by the legendary David Attenborough, and the Facebook page is here, though I’m not sure when the program will air.

Kudos to the cinematographers!

The YouTube description:

10 years ago Planet Earth changed our view of the world. Now we take you closer than ever before. This is life in all its wonder. This is Planet Earth II.

A decade ago, the landmark television series Planet Earth redefined natural history filmmaking, giving us the ultimate portrait of life on Earth. Planet Earth II, narrated by Sir David Attenborough, will reveal our planet from a completely new perspective, using significant advances in both filming technology and our understanding of the natural world.

Jane Goodall-Animal Rights Activist

Jane Goodall The Famous biologist

An Excerpt:
“Jane Goodall created one of the most trailblazing studies of primates in modern times when she dwelled with Tanzanian chimps to observe their behavior.
Her fascination in animal behavior began in early childhood. In her leisure time,she observed native birds and animals, making extensive notes, and sketches, and read widely in the literature of zoology and ethology. From an early age, she dreamed of travelling to Africa to observe exotic animals in their natural habitats.
At the invitation of a childhood friend, she visited South Kinangop, Kenya. Goodall was sent to study the vervet monkey;which lives on an island in Lake Victoria.
While she is reluctantly resigned to the continuation of animal research, she feels young scientists must be educated to treat animals more compassionately.
Goodall’s efforts to educate people about the ethical treatment of animals extends to young children as well. Her 1989 book, The Chimpanzee Family Book, was written specifically for children, to convey a new, more humane view of wildlife. The book received the 1989 Unicef/Unesco Children’s Book-of-the-Year Award and Goodall used the prize money to have the text translated into Swahili. It has been distributed throughout Tanzania, Uganda and Burundi to educate children who live in or near areas populated by chimpanzees.”

Discovering passion

Although I search for inspiring Wildlife stories,in which children growing up loving the wildlife and doing something nothing short of a miracle for the cause, is my desired theme;yet there is such a force which mystifies one in the biographies of the wildlife photographers that I have blogged them hoping that youth viewership may be fulfillingly inspired by these stories.

I read about the wildlife photographer Steven Blandin. I was amazed to find that he discovered his passion for wildlife photography on an African safari! I do not know how much he loved Dame nature as a child or how much he knew about wildlife then. He tells us that his wife introduced him to nature photography (In their early dating years). That makes my view take a shifty ride on a paradigm shift which changed the belief that hold tight to the job you already have and keep any new found interest or passion to a secondary importance! Steven’ s life says if you find that the seed of passion that lay dormant for a long time;suddenly shoots up into a tree with flowering blossoms and all! Do not crush it. If it drives you towards success take that energy saver ride! You have been gifted! Steven is…
