Carnival of the Green #29
We asked Nancy Swift of The Aberdare Institute, Kenya East Africa to host this week's carnival. The Institute is located in the Frank Buck Zoological Preserve and dedicated to the welfare of endangered species through its programs of research and education.
Dr. Swift's adventures are a regular feature on The Animal Broadcast Network.
Carnival of the Green, started by City Hippy and TriplePundit, is now booking space on the 2007 train and for good reason, COTG is one of the premier carnivals on line - congratulations to everyone.
Special thanks to Website Design and Promotion for hosting last week, great carnival guys. COTG #30 is back for a second round at Dee's Dotes next Monday.
Now, Carnival of the Green episode 29
