There's a lot of very exciting things going on over here at The Natural World! For starters, we have moved to a new domain name, you can now follow us at https://thenaturalworldconnections.wordpress.com/. The new blog gives me a fresh start, and more flexibility with how I can display the images that I upload to the blog. I am going to be keeping this blog here in its current capacity, with the caution that a number of my older posts do not adhere to the stricter levels of accuracy and discipline that I will have on the new blog. So enjoy the old posts, but take the information contained within them with a grain of salt. I hope, at one point, to go back through the blog and indicate which posts I still fully approve of.
I have also started The Natural World Podcast, which (if all goes according to plan) should be accessible on iTunes very soon, and I will also upload the episodes in a playlist on my YouTube channel. HERE is a link for the playlist, and you can check out the first episode below.
In another playlist on my YouTube channel, I have been uploading my Semester at Sea videos that I made of the voyage (you can find the playlist link by clicking HERE). Unfortunately, since I was in the middle of the ocean in areas that didn't really have Internet access for most of the semester, I didn't get around to uploading these videos until just a week ago, which was when I discovered that many of the songs I used in the background are copyrighted in such a way that the audio tracks are simply removed from the videos, making them strange, fast-paced silent movies. Nevertheless, check the videos out, as they are visually appealing, even without the audio tracks. Below is a link to one of the best videos in the series, from South Africa!
I've got some other exciting projects in the works as well, and I will be sure to keep you updated on all of them! In the meantime, make sure to follow us over to Wordpress, and follow the YouTube channel, as well!
