I have been thinking about doing something like this for a long time and realise that the job is bigger than just little old me! I live in Queensland for instance and am not exposed to the wildlife in other Australian States. I have created a gorgeous free site using the Wetpaint Community platform and anyone can join who would like to contribute in creating a wealth of educational resources about Australian Wildlife and Wild Plants.
<span style="color: #888888;">My aim is to provide an educational site for artists, writers, researchers, nature lovers, school children, students etc to be able to find information, resources and help in identifying all of our beloved Australian critters.</span> <span style="color: #888888;">I have so many photographs just waiting to be added and I hope that you do too and that you would be willing to share them with the world! Even if you can’t identify what they are but they are good quality, members would love you to share them and we can help you identify the species. This is very much a community site where everyone has the power to create, tweak, modify, correct, add to, help, discuss and so on. It will, however, be moderated just to keeps things ‘fair’.
<span style="color: #888888;">Why would you do this ? </span>
<span style="color: #888888;">because you:
<li><span style="color: #888888;">are passionate about Australian native wildlife and you want to learn more about all of the flora and fauna around you</span></li>
<span style="color: #888888;">Pop over to <a href="http://australianwildlife.wetpaint.com/">Australian Wildlife Educational Site</a> now and explore. Please support my vision by becoming a member f<em>or free</em> and contributing in whatever way you can, no matter how small and there will never be any pressure on you from anyone to contribute and no nagging e-mails. After all, this site is about a greater cause than our own egos but rather a like-minded group of people who are passionate about their love for Australian nature. Having said that though, you get your own page as well where you may choose to promote yourself and your work. What have you got to lose?</span>
