Interview with Sharon Guynup

This last week I posted an interview with Sharon Guynup to both a Tiger Journal and the Endangered Earth Journal.

Sharon is a writer / editor / photographer who has written on topics ranging from climate change, fracking, the discovery of the SARS virus in bats, the physics of melting glaciers, mercury’s impact on wildlife and humans, the safety of nanotechnology, and the state of the oceans, to the genetic sequencing of the TB virus, toxic chemicals in household products, conservation tigers, jaguars, Asian turtles, sharks, pronghorns, and others–and has chronicled eco- and adventure travel.

And that is just a small part of her professional bio. However, even this impressive bio doesn’t do justice to who she is as a person.

I’ve had the privilege to meet Sharon because she contacted me about a new book on tigers she worked on for National Geographic; Tigers Forever: Saving the World’s Most Endangered Big Cat.

The book is a collaboration with award-winning National Geographic photographer Steve Winter. And as the book description says, the book melds spectacular images of tigers and their secret behaviors with insights into why one of the world’s most iconic species is careening towards the edge–and describes the extraordinary efforts to save them.

Over the last few months I’ve had the opportunity to talk more with Sharon about conservation and tiger issues, and to also interview her for a book project I am working on for a client. A book project about some very amazing women.

And all I can say is that Sharon certainly fits the description of being an amazing woman. And it certainly has been my pleasure to get to know her better. Because having people like Sharon in the world brings hope to topics that are not always hopeful.

With her talent, Sharon could certainly write about anything she would want to write about; you know, fluffy stuff like fashion or travel or food; stuff that the everyday person gets all “excited” about.

But rather than put her own “emotional well-being” first, she uses her energy and talent to write about some very important, but very difficult issues that need to be written about.

Sharon gives of her own well-being for both the well-being of the planet and the well-being of the other species we share it with.

And that’s pretty cool.

If you haven’t read the interview it can be found both in a Tiger Journal and the Endangered Earth Journal.

New Bagheera and Tigers in Crisis

A LONG week in website launching. Over the last few days the newly designed - and mobile friendly- Bagheera and Tigers in Crisis websites have launched.

It’s always interesting to launch a new site design. You really have no idea if people are going to like it or not. However, if traffic and page views are any indication, visitors to both sites like the new design.  [Continue Reading...]

I am just putting the finishing touches on the new Bagheera website that will launch on Tuesday, and on the Tigers in Crisis website that will launch on Thursday.

The Bagheera website is around 150 pages deep, so it took a little longer than I thought it would. And, I also added a video channel (not planned) which took additional time as well.

OK…and then there was the Super Bowl.  [Continue Reading...]

New Design for Bagheera and Tigers in Crisis


Over the last month I have been working on redesigning all my (14) endangered species websites. This next week I will be launching the newly designed and Tigers in Crisis websites.

Bagheera is my endangered species educational website and Tigers in Crisis is one of six endangered tigers websites I have produced. Over the last 18 years millions of people have requested tens of millions of pages of information about endangered species and endangered tigers from the and Tigers in Crisis websites. Hopefully these new designs will last the next 18 years. [Continue Reading...]
