Izilwane--Voices for Biodiversity Overview
Target demographics: Teens and adults.
Geographic areas served: Global
We are a global online community sharing stories to connect humans with the natural world and help other species flourish. We believe that as humans become aware that we are human animals and are part of local and global ecosystems, we will choose to live in ways that value all species and will protect and cherish the ecosystems that support us all.
Izilwane shares your articles, interviews, photos, videos, podcasts that related to enhancing our human relationship to the natural world. We have received positive responses from organizations ranging from the American Anthropological Association to the International Primatological Association. We share content with ecology.com and we also blog for National Geographic.
