This website has been my personal project for over 20 years now; its the means by which I learn about wildlife. When I chance upon a species I haven't seen before I typically know very little about it. So ... I take some photos as best I can, and then draft some text for a new web page; this is the best way to learn.

There are now more than 850 pages on my website, with many photographs from old friends too. I couldn't have made this journey without them.

Here in Singapore, nature appreciation is now a mainstream activity, and this is very good news. It's a consequence of limited travel opportunities during the pandemic, forcing people to explore their own country and to find the diversity of wildlife it still supports.

In the Philippines the invasive Marine Toad (= Cane Toad) Rhinella marina is being reported from more and more islands. Most recently it has been reported from the islands of Tandubas and Bongau in the Sulu faunal region. Click here [pdf]. 

I hope you all stay healthy as the omicron wave goes around the globe.
