Blue Sky Wildlife One Year On
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 last February.
This evolving website 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.
The website has over 1,200 wildlife species listed, which allows those working from a 'bucket list' to find the right tour operator easily.
A species name can be typed into the site's keyword search tool, which will then produce a list of tour operators offering opportunities to see that species.

“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,” said Chris Larsen from Blue Sky Wildlife.
“Visitors can easily book directly and commission free with in-market wildlife specialists, ranging from birding day trips in Spain for €55 to 11-day Ugandan wildlife safaris from $US4,500.”
Blue Sky Wildlife is committed to sustainable ecotourism and is recognised as a Birdlife Species Champion, supporting the Birdlife International Preventing Extinctions programme.
Blue Sky Wildlife makes it 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 five wildlife tours, with the capacity to download tour itineraries directly from the site.
