Web Site of the Week: Wildfinder

Do you know where the red panda lives? How about the celebrated Siberian tiger? You can find out right here with the World Wildlife Fund’s Wildfinder interactive tool. The long term goal of the site is “to include all of the species on Earth,” an ambitious venture. Visitors will enjoy using the Search by Species and Search by Place functions found here. After typing in a species (or common animal) name, visitors can look over a detailed map, read about the animal in question, and learn more about its habits and more. Users can also learn more about the database and how it came to be, or sign up to receive updates about the WWF’s work. [KMG]
