“I really like the fact that this entry is about an intimate encounter with a relatively common animal. The power of the piece comes not from the rarity or exotic nature of the wildlife but from the author’s reflections on the privilege of entering, however briefly, another creature’s world.

The Wildlife Blog Collection is a 312 page compilation of 70 short stories submitted to Wildlife Blogger of the Year 2018, celebrating some of the most memorable, entrancing and exciting wildlife moments as told by top nature writers from across the globe.
From the discovery of a clouded leopard in Borneo’s degraded rainforests, to an audience with an African crowned eagle and its unlucky prey in Kenya, to the unexpected wildlife of England after dark, there are incredible moments to uncover.
It includes winning entries as chosen by a panel of 14 judges -including Dr Mark Avery, James Lowen, Dr James Borrell, Ed Drewitt and Lucy McRobert – and uses storytelling to explore humanity’s relationship with wildlife and highlight wildlife conservation issues around the globe.
“We wanted to share these stories and their messages widely and to give their passionate and talented authors the recognition they deserve”, said Editor Kristi Foster from Terra Incognita.
The competition and eBook was coordinated and run by Terra Incognita who believe that ecotourism can be a powerful force for good in the world. As a social enterprise it seeks to promote the best examples of ecotourism worldwide. It does this by collating lists of amazing tour providers who help conserve the environment, support local people and educate guests.
