Share Your Pollinator Pics!

Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) is a devastating and crucial environmental issue that the entire planet is facing. If the world’s pollinators-bees, bats, butterflies, hummingbirds-disappear, so does one-third of our planet’s food supply.

Learn more about CCD and what you can do to help protect the pollinators. Resources like the Monarch Watch and Pollinator Partnership are great resources.

Do you love the pollinators as much as we do? Share some pictures on our Facebook of your favorite of the pollinators. Get to snapping!

New York Times Examines Hidden Worlds

The New York Times recently published an article discussing the highly valuable properties of “the hidden world under our feet,” that is to say, the life that resides in the soil: “the microbes, fungi, nematodes, mites and even gophers that make up a complex web of interrelationships.”

The timeliness of the article is kismet; Louie’s upcoming IMAX film “Mysteries of the Unseen World” digs into just this topic. Utilizing cutting-edge technology, the film will make the invisible visible, allowing audiences to see things that escape the naked eye every minute of every day. From high-speed and time-lapse photography to images seen at the nanoscale, audiences will be mesmerized by what exists right in front of them that, until now, was beyond their vision.

Look out for “Mysteries of the Unseen World” in late 2013!
