About

Griffin Groups is a free-to-use tool for building a community of conservation communities. Each community is a private or public group that contains private and/or public content about conservation topics, partnerships, and projects. Members of Griffin Groups can start or join multiple groups of interest using a single log in, and receive email notifications when others participate in those groups. The site has many features, including file and photo archiving, blogs, discussions, rss feeds and reads, event calendars, collaborative page editing, and project management tools. Feel free to browse the site. For an enhanced experience, please register and log in.

This site was initially developed and is owned by Ed Laurent, PhD, and is a collaboration of Griffin Groups members. Griffin Groups is built on the free and open source Elgg social networking engine, many Elgg community provided plugins, and some custom features requested by, developed by, and/or funded by Griffin Groups members.
