This is cool, and a bit dizzying, but I'm missing one thing: I thought the East African Rift would be pulling that continent apart along the rift zone. That's not illustrated here. What am I not understanding?
The Ocean Doctor continues on his quest to share the wonders of the ocean and its exploration and conservation with children all over the western hemisphere. His travels this year have brought him to South Dakota, Missouri, and Cuba. But he can't do it all without help. That much airfare, traveling food, and time off really add up.
If you can throw just a dollar or a bit more in the tip jar to help this science educator bring the ocean to children thousands of miles away from it, either literally or figuratively, please do. Check out his blog, see what he's doing, and find a way to help.
(the photo is not the Ocean Doctor -- I should ask him for a photo I can use, hm.)
I collect natural history, environmental, and geography books, almost compulsively. I look for used versions where I can (to save paper) but also appreciate that many of these books come out in runs of a few thousand copies, and aren't profit-makers for the publishing companies, so when they come out new, I buy them while they're new. If you like Geographile and want to let me know, please either comment on my posts, or visit my Powell's wishlist to feed my book collection. You might find books you like there, too.
