he Ecogeek Giveaway

This fall we’re happy to hand out some excellent Animal Planet DVD’s about film makers making wildlife films. This style of adventure and filmmaking is very much like what we do and thus we thought it was a good fit for our first prize.

To get one of the five, all you have to do is help us test our beta site.  Log on to and sign in as an ecogeek through our facebook connect feature.  Then add information to your profile.  The 5 users with the best profile will be our winners.  We’ll contact you on October 5th, 2009 to send them out to you!


Raw Nature follows filmmakers Matt Renner, Mitch Tanen, Gianny Truttman and Anneli Gericke as they travel across the world to document wildlife professionals working to help animals survive human encroachment.

Subjects include a man dedicated to rescuing poached sloth bears turned entertainers on the streets of India, and a Sumatra biologist who’s doing everything she can to help save the orangutan population from total extinction.

Viewers will also be provided with an up-close-and-personal view of animals — from Komodo Dragons’ whose spit will kill you to white rhinos who will charge at a moment’s notice.

In addition, the series will also emphasize conservation, preservation and an understanding that the world needs to ensure its own survival.
