Blue Sky Wildlife, a unique wildlife tours and ecotourism holidays listing website, launched in collaboration with Tim Appleton MBE (co-founder of Birdfair), is celebrating its first anniversary since being launched on 1st February last year.
This evolving website really offers something for all lovers of nature and wildlife. It has 60 established and award winning wildlife tour operators and companies already listed. These offer over 300 unique wildlife tours across 33 destinations worldwide.
Blue Sky Wildlife makes it very easy to get in touch with specialist wildlife tour operators and companies directly, whether by phone, email, enquiry form, Skype or WhatsApp. Each wildlife listing presents its top 5 wildlife tours, with the capacity to download tour itineraries directly from the site. The website has over 1,200 wildlife species listed, which allows those working from a ‘bucket list’ to find the right tour operator easily. Type in a species name in the Keyword Search tool and up pops a list of tour operators who could show you that desired species (for example, you could potentially see a Little Bustard with 5 different companies listed on the website).
“With exchange rates moving in the wrong direction for some countries, birders and nature lovers are seeking alternative ways to book their next holiday to ensure they secure the keenest pricing. Visitors can easily book directly and commission free with in market wildlife specialists, ranging from birding day trips in Spain for €55 to an eleven day Ugandan wildlife safaris from $US4,500”, commented Chris Larsen from Blue Sky Wildlife.
Blue Sky Wildlife is committed to sustainable ecotourism and is recognised as a Birdlife Species Champion supporting the Birdlife International Preventing Extinctions programme.
