“Once in a while my father would find a praying mantis and show us. I always wanted to put it in a jar, but was instructed to leave it alone. All day, I would visit it. Nothing in science fiction could compete with this creature.” — Lucille N. Gertz
The EwA guides and etiquettes† cover a great deal of information about wildlife watching and, nature & wildlife conservation travel and volunteering. These guides provide essential details to help you research and assess any wildlife and/or conservation opportunities. They also prepare you to live and promote a relevant volunteering or wildlife touring experience.
Here, for the benefit of the mindful Nature enthusiast, the EwA Basics of Wildlife Watching pulls together some useful information based on questions that we get asked a lot, as well as it helps the reader navigate the EwA guides and etiquettes.
⏸ Before we start, remember that wildlife watching should be as gentle as possible on the wildlife. Wildlife watching is increasingly popular as a means to be in the wild and see wildlife. Unfortunately, this has an impact on the wildlife itself. The number one ethical rule should be for any wildlife viewer or photographer to have no such impact, and to put the welfare of the wildlife and the respect of the habitat ahead of any other consideration.
