I originally posted the following at deviantART ( https://www.deviantart.com/jd-man/journal/SD-The-Jurassic-World-2-movie-and-challenge-770593457 ). Now, I'd like to know whether you guys took an unofficial "Jurassic World 2 Challenge".

Hi everybody,

As you may remember, I saw "Jurassic World", took the "Jurassic World Challenge", & in the process committed to eventually moving to Seattle ( https://www.deviantart.com/jd-man/journal/SD-The-Jurassic-World-movie-and-challenge-541332172 ). I've since moved to Seattle & seen JW2. Unfortunately, there was no official "Jurassic World 2 Challenge". I didn't wanna feel like I was watching JW2 without a greater purpose, so I took an unofficial "Jurassic World 2 Challenge" in the following way:

-1st, I read Vincent's JW2 review (I.e. "JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM – MARC’S REVIEW", which sums up my opinion of the movie: https://chasmosaurs.com/2018/06/07/jurassic-world-fallen-kingdom-marcs-review/ ). My only nit-pick is that there's no mention of Lockwood's dioramas (which, to me, are the most interesting things in the movie).

-Then, I pledged $1/month (& thus, $12/year) to Darren Naish's Patreon ( https://www.patreon.com/TetZoo ). As a big fan of Naish's work in general & his dino-related work in particular (E.g. Naish/Barrett's "Dinosaurs: How They Lived and Evolved", which I reviewed: https://www.amazon.com/review/R3VQ7TMT8EFOC7/ref=cm_cr_srp_d_rdp_perm?ie=UTF8 ), I've been meaning to pledge for a while, but was waiting for the right time. Now is the right time for 3 main reasons: 1) The move; 2) The challenge; 3) "The Dinosaurs in the Wild book" (See the Naish quote; Also, my initial reaction to said quote: https://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/gravityfalls/images/0/00/S2e5_stan_react.png/revision/latest?cb=20141019052029 ).

-Last, I donated $12 to the Woodland Park Zoo's conservation efforts ( https://www.zoo.org/conservation ). In addition to the Burke (which has "the only real [dino] fossils on display in Washington state!": http://www.burkemuseum.org/calendar/i-dig-dinos ), there's also the Pacific Science Center (which has robot dinos) AWA the WPZ & Seattle Aquarium (which have live birds). Of the latter 3, the WPZ is the best choice for 3 main reasons: 1) Its physical closeness to me; 2) "The role [it has] to play in the world for conservation and education" ( https://www.theguardian.com/science/2017/mar/08/why-the-world-needs-zoos ); 3) Trevorrow's pretentious/ignorant zoo-shaming (See the Trevorrow quote; Also, my initial reaction to said quote: https://memecrunch.com/meme/5UXWN/fuck-you-too ).

Cheers,
Herman Diaz

P.S. Happy Halloween!

Quoting Naish ( http://tetzoo.com/blog/2018/9/3/the-last-day-of-dinosaurs-in-the-wild ): "This blog, my research and many of my projects are made possible thanks to your kind support at patreon. The more support I receive, the more able I become to spend time producing the content you like to see: the Dinosaurs in the Wild book discussed here, for example, could be published if only I were able to devote the time to it."

Quoting Trevorrow ( https://www.slashfilm.com/jurassic-world-2-details/ ): "The dinosaurs will be a parable of the treatment animals receive today: the abuse, medical experimentation, pets, having wild animals in zoos like prisons, the use the military has made of them, animals as weapons."
