I am trying to think of a volunteer position that involves "Working black vultures" :)

Next term I'm going to be doing a couple of interesting courses for Spanish people on "English and nature" (see link) and I'm having to prepare quite a lot new material for them.

As a result I've started a new section on iberianature called "learning English through nature" where I'm going to post up most of the material. It occurs to me that we might be able to attract more Spanish people to the forum as this section could act as a natural bridge This is one of Clive's and my original goals for iberianature: to make the forum a meeting point for Spanish and foreign naturalists through English as an international language.

If I have time, I might also do it the other way and write material for people wanting to learn Spanish through nature. Some of the exercises would be quickly adaptable.

Great idea. And then, of course, there could be organised Iberianature field trips. With special rates for members. I know a nice place  :santa_smiley:
How about Iberianature wolf watching in English (first bit Teresa's idea, second mine) or the wild flower meadows of the Picos de Europa in English? I reckon we also have members with sufficient knowledge to do the invertebrate and reptilian life of the Spanish pseudosteppes.............the list is endless. Iberianature Holidays  :santa_cheesy:

From the blog;

The Basque Iberian wolf group, Grupo Lobo de Euskadi, is organising a couple of days of talks on the 19th and 20th of December, 2008 in Vitoria. This will be the fourth of these meetings, reuniting wolf experts in Spain, and will be attended by naturalists, biologists, ecologists and farmers as well as being open to members of the public. One of the country’s foremost wolf experts, Carlos Sanz, will be among the contributors and the main focus of this year’s meeting will be given over to the national wolf conservation movements and their opinions on the various wolf management strategies of Spain’s autonomous communties. Previous meetings have included themes such as the biology of the Iberian wolf and problems relating to wolves and livestock. Contact details for applying to attend are included on the link below. It promises to be interesting!

The programme can be downloaded here on pdf.

B_____r! I can't go  :santa_angry:

Splendid initiative.
No idea if you might find any inspiration on this site, run by a mate of mine and his wife.

Sure they would be happy to explain the technology involved if you were interested. Obviously it could be used for texts in English with the Spanish translations appearing.  :)

I feel terrible for bumping down that brilliant lynx cub photo but thought these were interesting figures on poisoned Spanish wildlife.

Finally managed to fix the drop-down menu of the blog which for some reason beyond me hasn't been working for more than a year. Wil get round to modifying the colour soonish.

http://www.iberianature.com/spainblog/

If you run a wordpress blog you may be interested that the dropdown menu on the rest of the site is:

And the new blog menu uses:
