KMPL Site Updates

I'll use this thread to inform everyone of significant updates on the KMPL site.

And there's an update to announce right now!

We've added a news feature to the site. It will provide information regarding recent (and some retrospective) environmental and nature related news. It will try to focus on Korea but since the environment is not inclusive to borders or nationalism, it will ultimately provide news of global scope and interest. It will be updated weekly (every Sunday), so stop by the site some evening during the week, put on a spot of tea, and read some news about our amazing planet, all available in one place.

Visit the KMPL (the link to which is at the bottom of every KOTR page) for this week's features:

- Some Himalayan glaciers "surviving" global warming
- Cutting cattle-based methane by 25%
- 200 new amphibian species discovered, Madagascar
- New Korean salamander looks like American cousin

Enjoy!

The KMPL's photo and video gallery has returned after a long absence. Updated, the gallery is sporting not only photos of KMPL Council, members, and volunteers in action, but also some stellar shots of the more often than not beautiful wilderness of Korean highlands.

Take a look:
