Ed the Bear supports Earth Hour

We have supported Earth Hour again this year and encouraged people to do the same. Earth Hour is a great way to raise awareness and focus on energy use and the threat of climate change.
During the hour we turned off all lights and enjoyed the glow of numerous candles as well as turning off all other non-essential electrical appliances such as computers and TV. 

For three years now, Ed the Bears UK base has used solar panels to provide much of the electricity to run the administration of the project in the UK - including the charging of mobile devices such laptops and cameras. 

Each year millions of people, businesses, and landmarks set aside an hour to host events, switch off their lights, and generally make noise to shine a light on the need for climate action.

Help Scientists Research Decline in Penguins throught Citizen Science

Hi all

This week is British Science week and a great time to get involved in some citizen science. I have meet many penguins in travels, including jackass Penguins inn Africa and inn Antarctica I meet King penguins, Gentoo and chin strap penguins.

Many penguins are in danger and scientists are studying the Antarctic penguin populations to find out why some species are declining.

So me and my buddy Steve, along with thousands of other people, are taking part in a citizen science project called Penguin Watch

The scientists have thousands of photographs that have been taken remotely and they need help counting all the penguins in each picture.
For each picture you count the adult penguins, chicks, eggs and other wildlife present.
There is an easy introduction on the website to explain how to help. I hope you will have fun helping the scientists help the penguins.
