Websites & News: Introduction

A brief discussion on some of the conservation related websites used on a daily basis to understand this changing world and the human impact on our natural resources.

One of the greatest advances in the study of our global environment, was the advent of the satellite with its various observation techniques. Data from satellites developed by NASA (US government), dealing with space exploration became available in the public domain. Humanity was finally able to collate an overview of the state of the global environment, through a large variety of sensors developed for each satellite and for each focus area. A review of these results has become one of my favourite activities and each morning I observe them with excitement. In this section I will highlight the most informative sites accompanied by my comments on specific events occurring daily around the globe.
