Environmental Organizations Using Web 2.0

Today is Blog Action Day where bloggers are writing about the environment. While coming up with an idea of how the environment relates to my blog, I decided to research environmental organizations that have web 2.0 content on their website.

Here are a few organizations that I wanted to share -

Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN) - This organization has a blog and lecture videos. They also started a podcast project called World on Fire Podcast.

American Rivers - This organization has a blog and RSS feeds related to river conservation.

Casey Trees - This organization has a map were you can find out what trees are in locations in DC. You can find out the species, size and condition, and other information based on location.

Hi Emily,

Couple thoughts:

I think Greenpeace has made exemplary use of web2.0 models and technologies, with their site as an outstanding example.

Also, I'd like to think that NRDC, who I've worked with as a web guy since 2000, has done some pretty good things, including a big staff blogging program, a "social" map for global warming activists, integration of Flickr and YouTube in several sites, some google maps mashups, etc. And we're just getting started!
