Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) January 31, 2014
Endangered tigers website Tigers in Crisis.com has launched its Twitter feed @TigersinCrisis according to the website’s producer, endangered species journalist Craig Kasnoff.
According to Kasnoff, Tigers in Crisis.com focuses on issues that impacts endangered tigers.
“The goal of Tigers in Crisis.com is to promote the plight of endangered tigers and the efforts to save them,” says Kasnoff. “This includes publishing information from government agencies, conservation organizations and other sources of endangered tigers information from around the world.”
Kasnoff says a newly redesigned Tigers in Crisis.com website will launch in February, 2014.
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.
He says adding @TigersinCrisis is one more important tool in reaching people who are interested in endangered tiger issues.
“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. “And there was little, if any, opportunity for me to either publish video for a “large scale” audience, or to promote video created by others.”
Kasnoff says the new technologies and communication platforms have changed all that.
“Now, if I want to either write about endangered species or endangered tigers or laws that protect them, or publish a video about it, I just create the content, publish it on Tigers in Crisis.com or on one of the many communication platforms available, and hope people read it or view 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 other highly respected publications. For 10 years, he wrote and co-produced a nationally syndicated radio show call “Rock and the Environment” (which he created) that 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 yearly website traffic is in the “hundreds of thousands” and not in the millions), he has more freedom to write about, and promote, endangered species 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 species, the plight they face, and the efforts being made to save them.
Kasnoff adds he is launching a new design for the Tigers in Crisis.com website, and @TigersinCrisis will make it easier to promote all the content that will appear in the new website, as well as keep people updated on new and important endangered tiger information as it becomes available.
“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 all of those issues are the type of content that will be published @TigersinCrisis.
