The Google Earth Outreach program has added two new layers to the Global Awareness folder of the Featured Content section in Google Earth.

UK based charities Wildscreen, which promotes wildlife conservation and WaterAid, which advocates safe water in poor regions of the world, are using a program called Arkive to highlight their work in Google Earth.

Sir David Attenborough, Wildscreen’s charity patron, said," "Having spent over 50 years working in natural history broadcasting, I know how important technological innovation is for reaching new audiences. With the Internet, there are now even more opportunities to bring the wonders of the natural world to a global audience."

"Google Earth is a really powerful way for Wildscreen to show the vital work it’s doing. It is visual, easy to understand, and another important step in helping us appreciate that without care and conservation many of our amazing plants and animals may soon be lost forever."

The Google Earth Outreach program includes grants for licenses of the professional versions of Google Earth and the 3D modeling software Google SketchUp. There are also text and video tutorials on how to use the tools.
