Need to know what you can do to help the environment?

Eager to challenge friends to “get greener?”

Want environmental advice from an extinct bird? is the place to go!

This quirky and engaging interactive site is the newly launched on-line presence of TogetherGreen, an Audubon program funded by Toyota (with a $20 million grant!) to engage you in individual and collective actions that aid our environment.

Visitors of all ages will learn about TogetherGreen grants to launch innovative conservation projects, TogetherGreen fellowships to train environmental leaders, and evolving plans to offer a host of volunteer opportunities.

Among sections devoted to volunteerism, innovative projects, conservation leadership/heroism, includes some unique ways to connect to conservation:

** Tell it to the Dodo, where users can confess less-than-green behavior and get advice for making amends from a bird that blends a bit of attitude with forgiveness. After all, humans helped drive his species to extinction.

** Make your own Conservation Commercial (coming soon), which lets visitors edit and send video clips to friends to inspire conservation commitment and action.

** Action Center, offering hundreds of tips on being green at home, at work, in the community and when you travel.

** EcoPersonality, guiding users toward an individual environmental action prescription that fits their personality. Visitors can even submit action suggestions of their own to help others make a contribution.

Want to be green? Here’s a good place to start. Have fun! /Gary
