Endangered Species Turtle Puzzle Animated Short

  • September 4, 2010 5:26 pm

I was shocked to find some animals on my back deck recently putting the Green Sea Turtle/Eastern Cougar puzzle together. I caught them on film and decided to make a little video to share! David Matheson did all the sound effects and music.

It’s Really Happening!

  • February 23, 2010 7:57 pm

I am getting excited! It’s been a long, interesting, educational journey to get my new products realized…but…they ARE getting realized! As I write this the images for the new Endangered Species Memory Game and the new Endangered Species 2 in 1 Puzzle Series are going to print. All made here in Toronto and greener than ever! Yahoo!
I’m in the middle of planning a big spring launch party/fundraiser too. The Jane Goodall Institute of Canada will receive a portion of all sales of the games and puzzles on the day of the launch. The hippest, most outrageously fun kid’s band EVER will be there too - Sho Mo and the Monkey Bunch !
I’ll keep you posted as to how things progress…
Here’s a mock up of what one side of one of the Endangered Species 2 in 1 Puzzle Series puzzles will look like: just click the link below!

Polar Bears: Shift in Habitat in the Beaufort Sea Region

  • January 27, 2010 7:50 pm

I just came across a posting from e! Science News that I felt was worth noting. There are so many articles out there about climate change, shrinking ice in the polar regions, polar bears as poster children for endangered species and global warming…
It seems clear to me after reading this article that refers to a long term study ( 27 years ) by U.S. government Minerals Management Services in the Beaufort Sea area that there is a definite change in polar bear habitat. With this change comes an increase in human – polar bear contact. Shrinking ice ( polar bears preferred habitat ) means increased sightings of bears in water and on land and near people. This is definitely NOT good news for polar bears!
Please read this article and search more on the subject if this interests/concerns you at all. It sure concerns me. Polar bear – human contact to me equals more polar bears being killed…
