Sorry for the delay in posting the scan as I was away from home on holidays.  In any event, here it is.  Does a log exist for 1942?  Is it possible to get a scan of the ship's movements in September 1942?  Thanks.

written by Charles Dickens?

What I meant was that I will sign up to advertise OW.
I don't need more projects either.

Can you help us review Spanish or Italian projects?

Ciao,

We have two non-English language projects and we're looking for people who can review them. So if you can speak Spanish or Italian (or both) please help us out!

The Spanish Project is Archivo Digital Nacional de Puerto Rico -ADNPR-Pasaportes a Republica Dominicana. Please try it out and fill in this short feedback form https://goo.gl/forms/QLvC1Rq8W5Z48mEG2 (which is also linked on the project itself).

The Italian project is Occhio Alle Penne! Please try it out and fill in this short feedback form https://goo.gl/forms/VStOp6oeUQOzpeCB2 (which is also linked on the project itself).

We ask that you please submit your reviews of these projects in English.

Thanks so much for your help!

For more details...
About 7/8ths of an iceberg is below the water line. This figure is approximate. Although icebergs are similar, not all are the same. Varying factors are iceberg density, water density etc. Keep in mind we are talking about an iceberg's mass. Due to irregular iceberg shapes, icebergs may have varying heights out of the water, but mass is relatively consistent.

Fall has arrive on Chicago Wildlife Watch!

Hi there,

With your help, the Summer 2015 dataset on Chicago Wildlife Watch has been classified! We are only one more season away from moving towards our 2016 data: Fall of 2015. 

For us, Fall is the best time for field work. In the Spring many sites are flooded, most sites are buggy in the Summer, and Chicago Winters can be unforgiving (to say the least). Fall is also great for urban wildlife. The coyote, red fox, and striped skunk breed in the late Winter and their young generally set out on their own in the Fall. Virginia opossum and raccoons, on the other hand, breed twice a year, but the Fall is also one of their main dispersal seasons. 

So what does this mean for this dataset? These species are seen at more locations in the Fall than other seasons. For you, that means there are even more wildlife photos in this dataset than the other seasons! So come help us with our back log of camera trap photos and move us forward to the next year! Thanks for your help!

Head over to www.chicagowildlifewatch.org to help us get closer to our goal!

Thanks,

Mason & the Chicago Wildlife Watch Team
