New HWF Website Coming - Volunteer and Pics Needed

Wildlife News

Some of you know that Hancock Wildlife hopes to get a long overdue new website this fall.  I've been asked to put out a call for a volunteer with Wordpress experience. 

We also  need help locating some good resolution photography to use on the website that we have permissions to use. Doesn't have to just be eagles, but other birds, wildlife, environmental photos, etc.  They need to be clean, crisp, a decent resolution and reasonably large as well.  They should be at least 1024 pixels wide, ideally 1920 or larger.  We can always shrink an image.  We can't usually enlarge one without image quality degrading.

Contact:  myles@hancockwildlife.org  Also please send a Cc: to me at karen@hancockwildlife.org  Thanks.
