Arts, Culture & Environment - CASABIO to conserve earth's species

In today's show, we were joined by David Gwynne-Evans - CEO of CASABIO.org. CASABIO is an NGO dedicated to the conservation of the earth's species. The organisation’s concept is simple: take photos of organisms you see and using their easy and efficient software, give them a locality. CASABIO seeks to recruit volunteers to spend time in the field documenting organisms, as well as time spent integrating information into the database, based in Cape Town. The Project objective is to develop a catalogue of local organisms of your choice, and to populate the database with these and other species encountered. For more information you can contact David via email capebio@gmail.com or visit www.casabio.org
