Hi, Zilotta. Good to see you

Hi, Zilotta. Good to see you visiting iSpot from Germany. How did you hear about iSpot? Is there anything like this in Germany? We would love to start a sister site there (in German, of course).

Hi, Jonathan. I was very

Hi, Jonathan. I was very pleased when I found your note. I heared about iSpot through Radio 4´s Saving Species. I often listen to BBC podcasts. When I looked at the iSpot website I found it very intriguing. As far as I know, there is nothing like iSpot in Germany,but I probably can´t judge. The nature protection organisation BUND in my hometown started a website for local observations called Naturspot Bremen. I am going to speak to the man in charge. I guess he knows about other german websites and potential german partners for iSpot. It would be great if there is going to be a sister site here. Please let me know how to contact you.
