Neat! Just found out about this contest here. Sadly, I think I dun have enough species data here to present anything nice. Anyone has data they wish to display on Google Earth? Offering my skills for a chance at the contest!
The rules of the contest kinda skipped Singapore for one of the countries eligible for the contest although in their demo use page they showed a Singapore Dengue distribution map. I hope they recitfy this. Although I hope to join not for the prizes
the excerpt of the rules is here

Contest is void where prohibited by law.

Interesting pic and story by eleveninth. apparently a macaque monkey was trying to catch this hornbill (for food perhaps? or just playfulness?)
Thanks to eleveninth for graciously allowing me to reproduce his pic here. all rights remain his.
p.s. sorry I haven't been blogging much .. been busy!
just bought a new toy a GPS data logger! very soon I be able to geotag photos!
but i might only geotag those photos that are of species that are less sensitive for fear of poachers.
I think its a sad thing when u have fellow human beings that appreciate the beauty of nature but only thinks to want to own it so that he/she alone can enjoy the beauty in private and in violation of legal laws. Just have a look at what this guy commented on SLOG

Can you see the two footprints here? the magnified view of the top one is below
Was out with teamseagrass at Chek Jawa and I spotted this set of paw prints VERY close to the broadwalk!
Judging from the depth of the print i think he/she had a easier time walking through the soft mud then me..
I tried following the trail but naturally it didnt end in a pot of gold or an otter..
I wonder what species it is!

Read about "THE discovery of this attractive species, one of about a dozen of its kind in the Indo-Pacific, is in some respects a remarkable surprise, given its large size and the fact that sea stars and their relatives had been intensively surveyed and studied throughout the 1990s by a team of NUS and Belgian marine scientists."
