Hop on for a Virtual Tour of the World's Wildlife Refuges and Protected Areas

My friend Ramesh has requested me to blog on the new initiative of UNEP, which allows virtual tour of world’s protected areas.  Ramesh says many people are not aware of it.  UNEP has turned to the wiki-world in an attempt to improve protection of the natural areas. UNEP maintains a database of protected areas around the world, based on data from government agencies. The database doesn't get updated regularly and UNEP thinks the best way for upgradation is to reach out to the public via WIKI
The new imitative allows people to visit little-known protected areas. UNEP hopes this will generate revenue and improve knowledge about them.
So what are you waiting for? Click HERE for a virtual tour of wildlife reserves of the world.
