The diversity of life is one of the most striking aspects of planet Earth. For me, few things in life give a greater sense of exhilaration or thrill in life than seeing animals free in the wild. Sometimes these can be rare special occasions, such as sighting an elusive Leopard in the African Bush, or can be relatively common, like a plump Wood Pigeon in your back garden, but regardless they always seem to enrich your life somehow, or bring an extra dimension to a situation. The term ‘Wildlife’ includes all non domesticated species. Wildlife can be found in all ecosystems on Earth. From the hottest, driest deserts, to the wettest rainforests, to the highest mountains, the coldest Polar Regions, to the deepest seas and lakes, to the most built up areas of urbanisation animals make their home!
The biodiversity of Earth is truly stunning, this section hopes to give an overview and guide to just a few of the vast array of species that exist!
Check out my A-Z of Wildlife which I hope to keep adding species. If you have any requests you would like me to add let me know!
