Merlin Tuttle founded Bat Conservation International (BCI), an organization devoted to research, education and conservation of bats, in 1982. When Tuttle retired in 2009 from nearly 30 years of service as its Executive Director, BCI employed 32 biologists, educators, and administrators, supported by 11,000 members in 60 countries. Under Merlin’s leadership BCI gained permanent protection for many of the world’s largest remaining bat populations, sponsored research to document the vital ecological and economic roles of bats, trained hundreds of wildlife managers in bat research and conservation techniques, and vastly improved the public’s perception of bats. Merlin’s photographs have appeared in five National Geographic articles, more than a dozen National Geographic Society books and other magazines, and was included in their prestigious publication, 100 Best Pictures. Merlin continues to assist conservationists, provide lectures, photograph bats worldwide in addition to leading his newest organization, Merlin Tuttle’s Bat Conservation. "Merlin Tuttle, the world's most famous bat biologist and booster, has devoted his life to studying, demystifying, and helping conserve bats." -National Geographic Magazine

Fléchères est le plus grand château ouvert à la visite aux environs de Lyon. Elevé d'un jet, de 1606 à 1625 et conservé intact, il offre un témoignage exceptionnel sur la vie des grands notables lyonnais au XVIIe siècle. En 1632, le peintre Pietro Ricchi, tout juste arrivé de Toscane, y réalise un décor étonnamment varié, qui dépasse tout ce que l'on connait en France pour cette époque, par sa qualité, son ampleur et son état de conservation. La visite du château permet aussi d'admirer les grandes cheminées sculptées, l'escalier à cage vide, l'appartement à boiseries Louis XV richement meublé et des cuisines anciennes "en ordre de marche".

Acquis en 1799 par Joséphine et Napoléon Bonaparte qui recherchaient une terre aux environs de Paris, le château de Malmaison est un exemple unique pour son décor et son mobilier de style consulaire. Les séjours de Napoléon et de Joséphine à la Malmaison se partageaient entre repos, détente et travail. Parties de jeux, déjeuners champêtres, bals et spectacles, rythmaient alors la vie quotidienne de la Malmaison, entre deux conseils des ministres. Après son divorce, en 1809, Joséphine continua à vivre dans cette demeure jusqu’à son décès. On peut d'ailleurs toujours découvrir au premier étage, la chambre dans laquelle elle s'est éteinte le 29 mai 1814. Grâce à de nombreux travaux de restauration et de remeublement, les appartements ont retrouvé leur caractère authentique. Des collections riches et variées consacrées à Bonaparte et à Joséphine sont également exposées. Une présentation des robes et accessoires ayant appartenu à Joséphine et à sa fille Hortense est également dévoilée au public par roulement, pour des raisons de conservation. L’évocation du château ne serait pas complète sans parler de son parc de plus de six hectares qui reflète parfaitement la passion de l’Impératrice pour la botanique.

World Water Day Urges the International Community to Reuse and Recycle Millions of people around the world are living without access to clean drinking water. To draw attention to what some experts are calling one of the largest public issues of our time; World Water Day was established as an international day of observance and action. According to the UN, more than half of the world will be living with water shortages in the next 50 years. One solution to the growing problem is reclaiming and recycling water instead of disposing it into oceans and rivers. Using new technology, a growing number of communities in the U.S. are starting to reuse and recycle water. This new process takes water through three steps, first traveling through hollow fiber membranes that remove 99.99 percent of all bacteria, then through reverse osmosis and finally through advanced oxidation using ultraviolet light. The result is near-distilled quality water. The entire process consumes about 50% less energy than importing water from outside sources. While this new technology makes conservation easier than ever before, it's only one part of the bigger solution. Experts urge that all Americans participate in conservation with everyday activities that include taking shorter showers, checking faucets for leaks and watering lawns judiciously.
