Celebrating 50,000 Photos and 13,000 species! Dear community, I forgot to mention this in the weekly newsletter but this week we crossed the spectacular milestone of 50,000 wildlife observations. Perhaps more importantly, the diversity of these sightings is so high as to result in over 13,000 species, found all over the world.<br />
<br />
Thank you for making JungleDragon what it is, our community may be small yet it feels like family to me. And I can ensure you that although I may currently be slow in updating the experience, I am fully committed to bring JD to a new level. <br />
<br />
Keep sharing, keep caring.<br />

  1. Hi Ferdy/All, CONGRATULATIONS!!
    First of all I think Ferdy deserves some serious back-padding, cuddling, cheers, whatever for making it possible for this community to thrive the way it does - Kudos to you Ferdy!! :o)
    But yes, he is right of course in praising the rest of you just as much. Every time I open JD in my browser the sheer flood of excellent images of the most diverse and at times bizarre life forms just never stop to make my day. I have a two screen setup here and don't use the second screen most of the time, but I always have some "image of the day" from JD filling that in full screen and at times just "play" the Home page (but it is too distracting really - I can just sit and gaze at that way too long :o)
    So a big THANK YOU to all involved !
    Cheers, Arp

    1. Thank you so much Arp, that means a lot. I like to redirect the praise to people like you. This platform took a lot of time to develop and continues to do so, but it's nothing without people like you. You're a great inspiration, and I explicitly mentioned this in the celebration article:

      If you love the homepage for its great highlights, you should definitely NOT look at this list:

  2. That is fantastic Ferdy! So wonderful that there are such dedicated members helping to make this the best wildlife site there is, especially those mentioned in your article.
    I am sorry that I have contributed so little over the past year or so but I am going to make a concerted effort to get the Isle of Wight firmly on the map, the place is teeming with wildlife, I just need to get out there and capture it.
    As Arp says, Kudos to you Ferdy as without you, Jungle Dragon simply would not exist.

    1. Thank you, Claire! We haven't forgotten about you, no worries. You stand as one of the earliest loyal members, has made giant contributions and have always promoted JungleDragon and wildlife in general. Even if you're away for a while, it's not forgotten, ever, and I sure look forward to your return :) Posted 6 days ago

  4. Congratulations to all! As Arp says, JD makes my day every day for the last almost 4 years. I haven't been uploading many photos lately but this new species of wildflower is for you Ferdy - thank you for making it all possible.

    1. Thank you Ani. Your daily effort over such a long time is something one can only dream of. You are the queen of moderators and a life saver. You guide users, correct identifications, apply identifications and keep this place clean. A lot of that work is daily and not visible to all, yet it is the most important work. JungleDragon has no staff, I too do not get paid for this (quite the contrary) yet I pretty much consider you staff anyway. Just with terrible play ;) Posted 6 days ago, modified 6 days ago

Draco viridis is the nickname of the JungleDragon, refering to the green lizard that serves as a mascotte of the JungleDragon site. The JungleDragon is not a real species, yet it is largely based on a real species: the Emerald Basilisk.
