exotic animals

Read my guest blog at PBS.org

I was invited to contribute a blog as part of PBS.org‘s Remotely Connected project. They chose an episode of Nature for me to write about, Simon King’s “The Cheetah Orphans.”

As some of you long-time readers might expect, I ended up putting in something like 1,300 very earnest words, so check it out if you’re looking for some fresh animal-friendly content. “The Cheetah Orphans” raises some interesting questions, so maybe you’ll give the film a look when it airs this coming Sunday, November 11th at 8pm (check local listings). It gave me the opportunity to write about wildlife issues from the point of view of animal interests in a venue known more for conservation than for animal rights.

And, while you’re at it, check out some of the previous posts listed down the left sidebar. I’m a fan of Merlin Mann (43Folders.com), who wrote up a fairly humorous entry that is typical of his work.
