INSPIR-ACTION Contest Winner: Andrea Gielens

Andrea Gielens is our official winner of the INSPIR-ACTION Contest!  Her story of working with the endangered Oregon Spotted Frog will be the basis for the next Monkey100 design.  Last week, I took a trip out to the Mountain View Wildlife Conservation Centre where the frogs are being reared and studied.  It’s a wonderful place, a bit of a secret, nestled as it is amid the farm fields of Langley.  I quickly learned that the center is home to other endangered creatures as well.  In fact, they host over 50 species of rare and endangered wildlife from across the globe.  Read More
