“I’d like to thank my mom…”

Bloggers at The Nature Conservancy are thinking about writing their acceptance speeches. But seriously, first, they have to win.

Yes, that’s the exciting news around here today – The Nature Conservancy blog Cool Green Science has been nominated for a Webby in the Green category!

This is the third year in a row the Conservancy has been nominated for a Webby, but this is special because it’s the first time for the Cool Green Science blog, and the first nomination outside of the non-profit category, according to our Web gurus.

From posts about Eating Green to swimming with sharks, Cool Green Science has been posting engaging interactions with the scientists and researchers of the Conservancy since January 2009. Bloggers share their current thinking on conservation issues of the day, along with stories and compelling video and photos of their exploits in nature.

Cool Green Morning, another feature of the blog, offers a news digest on the day’s environmental headlines and compelling reads.

To check out all the nominations and to vote for Cool Green Science or your favorites, visit the Webby’s People’s Voice.

Nominees are chosen by The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS).

“I’d like to thank the Academy….” (We can only dream.)
