Come Celebrate the official launch of the EcoCommons in Second Life!

Join in the official launch of the EcoCommons in Second Life! Our grand opening celebration will be happening Earth Day, Wednesday, April 22nd, 11 AM PT/SLT, on the new EcoCommons island in Second Life.

WWF brings an ecological message to SL in their new Conservation Island

The international conservation organization formerly known as the World Wildlife Fund, now simply called the WWF, has launched a new "Conservation Island" in Second Life to spread their message about living in harmony with nature. Clearly they are taking a whimsical approach to this, with orangutans that sell you ice cream and pandas that teach about sustainable products.

Happy Earth Day!

I hope everyone is celebrating Earth Day in their own special way today. There are a bunch of cool activities going on in Second Life that you can find here.


Many thanks to Brownrice Internet for hosting the NPSL site.
