What are wild animals up to all the time? Curious minds want to know, and this interactive and visually stimulating site from the National Science Foundation is just the place to find out. First-time visitors should click over to the Introduction to learn about how the NSF's interdisciplinary team of scientists is designing innovative tracking and information-management systems to learn exactly how animals spend their minutes, days, and years negotiating within an ecosystem for food and mates. Moving on, visitors can click on one of five animals (such as Deer, Dragonfly, or Zebra) to learn about the tracking technology being used to study their movements and activities. Also, visitors can learn some quick facts about each animal, view a short movie of the animal in the wild, and find out who is currently conducting research. It's a great site, and one that could be effectively used in a biology or zoology course.
