To interest educate and entertain people about wildlife and conservation issues.
To simplify wildlife travel by providing information and ability to book reserves, accommodation and travel.
To encourage people to travel and visit wild places that have few visitors to encourage their continued protection.
Through the above, and if the website is successful also by direct financial spending, See Animals Wild will support the continued protection of the Natural World.
For me, and many people, there is nothing more exciting than a close encounter with a wild animal. Modern day life is so far removed from the natural world, but almost anywhere in the world we can without any warning suddenly have an encounter with one of the animals we share the world with. If you live in the UK as I do, or many of the built up regions of the world, generally the animal in question is unlikely to cause you physical harm (unless for instance it is a deer and you hit it with your car!). Indeed it is sad that for most people of the UK you are more likely to see road kill than the live animal. However, in the world we live in it is relatively easy to travel and so many of us have been to places where encounters with large or dangerous animals is possible. If like me this concept (however remote a chance) is appealing then the places I will be reviewing will be of interest.
Comment on website setup
I have had many questions from people about the set up of the website. I am afraid that I have no advanced knowledge on this. I use wordpress, and have worked on finding a template that looks good. However I have not done anything clever to get this setup.
I have had many positive comments from people, and have no issue with the website being linked by other people, however I would have a position with my content being republished elsewhere without my permission.
Please note: All articles are written in English. I use a plugin to translate the articles, however this is entirely computer generated. At the current time, the website does not have the resources for anything more.
For your information, this website has all the web designing that it needs so all the messages I get offering these services are not needed As you can imagine if we ever need help we will do our own research and reach out to the people we choose. Please do not reach out to offer your services, I will not employ you you.
This website is intended to grow into a community for both those who live with wildlife on their doorstep, and those people who travel to put the wildlife on their doorstep – we aim to create a place for those who love wildlife, and those who live with wildlife. Do join us
