Beautifully shot in HD by Academy Award®-winning cinematographer Haskell Wexler at Carson's cottage in Maine, the film is an intimate and poignant portrait of Carson's life as she emerges as America's most successful advocate for the natural world.

Global Amphibian BioBlitz: Saving Amphibians Through Social Networking


Amphibians around the world are disappearing, and nearly a third are threatened with extinction. To better understand and conserve these animals, scientists need more information on their locations. And what better way to get the right info from around the globe than through people like you?

The Center has joined other conservation organizations to launch a web-based social networking effort dubbed the Global Amphibian BioBlitz. The BioBlitz website allows amateur naturalists from around the world to submit their amphibian photographs, along with dates and locations. The site's lofty aim? To take a census of the world's amphibians and discover which species are still here, and where — so we can make sure they stay here. With your help.

Help save frogs, toads and salamanders — and have fun at the same time — by submitting your observations to the Global Amphibian BioBlitz now. Then learn about the Center's own amphibian and reptile conservation campaign and get more about the BioBlitz from UC Berkeley.
