Wiki - Observing & Identifying Wildlife

[Please feel free to expand! I’d like this to stay a top level guide to guides – it might make sense to break out subordinate clades with their own wikis, if this gets unwieldy. I welcome any help!]

Seems to be working.

I haven’t updated this in a while, but on my blog I have a page for wildlife and plant ID resources:

Yes! You really do have some great links, and the blog posts are very well-written. You have some wonderful, unusual topics. I particularly liked the posting about the Ba Cat Island langurs. :relaxed: Thank you for sharing that.

I really need to do some new posts, but work here with the langurs just doesn’t leave me with enough free time where I have the energy to put into writing more posts.

I feel kind of bad about not uploading more and adding to the lists of ID, GIS, etc resources.
