Sharing a new site.

Recently, thanks to Gregg who found it on Twitter, I was introduced to a great site called 'Brain Pickings." It is a wealth of information and covers a vast array of topics. I found it immensely enjoyable and you can take a look if you click here.

While browsing through some of its pages, I came across this great little video that has been made by the World Wildlife Fund. It shows a short movie celebrating their 50th Anniversary. As Brain Pickings so eloquently puts it, "It's about Harry Potter meets The Census for Marine Life meets Nabakov's Butterflies." Click on their names to find very interesting articles.

Please click on the video to enlarge it to your computer screen.

Here can also see a short movie on Vimeo about the making of this movie.

So many take for granted we have found all and fail to negotiate the new and lost finds in our world. Makes me want to visit a natural history museum, there aren't any very close.

Hi Denise...It is so true that which had yet to be found ...I must admit I never have seen any Harry Potter movie's, but I was spell bound for a bit : }
We do take for granted, and there are those who really don't care!!!

We don't know what we don't know - there are discoveries being made every day - so exciting.
