September 27th, 2012

Hi there! gzPhoto voting will starts in two days! We apologise for the delay, it was because of technical preparations and testing new Greenzoner functions that we are planning to implement simultanously with the launch of gzPhoto voting.
🙂 These new functions will improve GZ’s performance, help you get more EEP and win prizes, which we prepared new and interesting. 😉

Once again, thanks to everyone who submitted their photos – we had a great time looking at them. 😀 But if you sent us a photo without any reference to Greenzoner (for example logo, or name), you won’t be able to partake – but you still can correct your photos and feel free to send us e-mail again. 🙂

Underwater circles

Interesting news. 🙂 This interesting shape was found on the bottom of the ocean near the coast of Japan. It was photographed by Japanese underwater photographer Yoji Ookata, who had no idea what he stumbled upon. After he returned to the same place with his colleagues and television crew, they discovered that these circles were made by male puffer fish. (more…)

Recently, there were reported many deaths of dolphins in the area of Gulf of Mexico – especially of younger dolphins, not long after their births. Ecologists estimated that these deaths are rather unusual, as six time more dolphins died than normally.

Sea otter is a specie of a mammal that lives on the coasts of northern and eastern Pacific Ocean. They belong to the weasel family, and are able to live on the land, but most of the time, they spend their lives in water.
Scientists recently discovered that sea otters have a great abilities that can help our environment. Because they feed on sea urchins, it keeps the kelp population balanced.  It helps reduce the amount of CO2 in our atmosphere, especially if there is starting to be  too much CO2, emitted by industrial areas, exhaust fumes and greenhouse gases. That means sea otters are able to prevent from global warming!

Khimki forest – photos

September 15th, 2012

Going back to Khimki forest issue – here are some pictures, thanks to eyef, again 🙂


Hello Greenzoners. This Eco News is thank to eyef, who brought us this information. 🙂

Khimki is a forest located near the city of Moscow, in Russia. Its size is 10 square kilometers, the trees that grow in this forest are rare species, and very old – many of them have several hundred years and are listed in Moscow’s Red Book – the document that contains the list of endangered species of plants and animals. The forest has a positive effect on the life of city’s inhabitants – it reduces the amount of the air pollution, by absorbing car exhaust fumes, and holds the noise from Sheremetyevo Airport. Khimki has been for many years under the protection of the state, and construction in that area was prohibited.
