The Fiona Show

This is a seriously cute and engaging compilation from the life of Fiona—a hippo at the Cincinnati Zoo, from her on camera birth to age two years old years. Check out the videos on the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden facebook page.

From there, you can watch all seasons of “The Fiona Show!”

Portland Audubon Backyard BioBlitz

Would you like to contribute to science? Check out Portland Audubon Backyard Bioblitz — a survey of the living species in the Portland metro area and Vancouver.

It’s open to all ages and skill levels, and they particularly welcome kids and families. It’s a great way to learn, and to focus on nature where you live.

Their website says:

“Observations should be limited to your home and the block on which you live … We are looking for information on wildlife on the developed landscape.

We have listed common birds and other wildlife species, but you don’t need to identify everything to the exact species. Log your observations to the level of detail you are able to confidently recognize. Writing “songbird” or “hawk” or “butterfly” is perfectly okay!”

You can also read about it at their specially created bioblitz facebook page.

“Anyone Can Participate: The Backyard BioBlitz is open to anybody or any age level or skill level within the Portland Metro Area. We particularly welcome kids and families! We want to hear about the wildlife that you are seeing—your information does not have to be complete or perfect. Identify whatever you can and let us know what you saw!”
