This site is an online community for nature lovers. It is a wildlife portal where users can sign up, create their profile, post photos, create articles, discuss topics that are related to nature or nature photography. It also provides various other services like follow other users, message other users, read/write comments on posts, pin posts, share posts on social networks, on-site notifications, etc. It may also add new services in future. Apart from providing a platform for wildlife professionals where they can meet new people and showcase their work, one of our goal is also to educate non-professionals and get them familiar with various nature species and spread awareness of protecting the environment for the benefit of both nature and humans. We want to show the beauty of nature to people through posts done by professional photographers and writers.
