The IUCN is celebrating the International year of Biodiversity 2010 by creating the Species of the Day. Today Tim’s image of the Panay Monitor Lizard (Varanus mabitang) is used for Species of the Day. The Panay Monitor Lizard is an endangered species endemic to Panay Island in the Philippines. To learn more go to Species of the Day.
To see more of Tim’s images from the Foja Mountains go to NGM’s photo galleries.
The June issue of National Geographic is out. Check out Tim’s article “Discovery in the Foja Mountains” on page 110. It illustrates the wide diversity of species and what it took to study the remarkable area.
Also, to go along with the NG story was a press release. You can read the articles and view some pictures on the web at TIME or Conservation International.
