Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) January 31, 2014
Endangered tigers website Tigers in Crisis.com will launch a new website design in February, 2014 according to the website’s producer, endangered species journalists Craig Kasnoff.
According to Kasnoff, Tigers in Crisis.com is an educational website focusing on the issue of endangered tigers.
“The goal of the Tigers in Crisis website is to educate individuals about the plight of endangered tigers and the efforts to save them,” says Kasnoff. “And over the last 16 years, Tigers in Crisis has been visited by millions of people, requesting millions of pages of information on endangered tigers. Now it is time to upgrade the website to accommodate the many new web technologies, and web devices now available, and over the course of 2014, update all its content as well.”
Kasnoff, who has also been a media consultant - as well as an endangered species journalist - for the last 20 years, says even though the advances in technology often time seem overwhelming to keep up with, the new communication channels such at YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Google+ create amazing opportunities for journalists to communicate important information to the public.
“When I first started as a freelance journalist, the only way I was able to get a story published on a conservation or endangered species issue was to be published in a 'traditional' media publication,” he says. “However now, if I want to write about endangered tigers, or laws that protect endangered tigers, I just write about it, publish it on one of the many communication platforms available, and hope people read it.”
Over the years, Kasnoff’s conservation writing has appeared in publications such as the Christian Science Monitor, The Seattle Times, the San Francisco Examiner and many other high profile publications. For 10 years, he also had a nationally syndicated radio show call “Rock and the Environment” which featured musical artists such as Paul McCartney, Chris Cornell of Soundgarden, Melissa Etheridge and others, talking about their environmental concerns.
Kasnoff says even though he doesn’t have the audience of a large publication (he says his audience is in the "hundreds of thousands" and not millions), he has more freedom to write about the issues he believes are important. And, he adds, by using the new media communication channels, there is “no limit” to how large an audience he can build to educate people about endangered tigers, the plight they face, and the efforts being made to save them.
Kasnoff adds the new design for the Tigers in Crisis.com website will make it “mobile friendly” and will also contain new features such not available on the current website. He says as well as updating the current content in the website, he will be adding new content areas as well.
“Saving endangered tigers is not just about science or conservation, it’s also about politics, finances, religion, culture and many other “human” activities,” says Kasnoff. “The challenge is trying to get a handle on the “big picture” because there are so many facets to that picture, and that picture is changing every day.
Kasnoff says his goal is to make sure ALL of those issues are eventually represented in the Tigers in Crisis.com website.
