Welcome to MyWild.

I started this website to be a central place from where some of my hobbies and projects can be accessed.

I'm passionate about camera trapping and wildlife in general. I like the idea of recording what I've seen and to analyse the data over time. I'm not a biologist by career, but I like to think I might be one by nature. These hobbies are a way for me to live out my inner biologist.

Below is a list of some of the MyWild highlights. Comments and feedback are welcome and appreciated.

Camera Trap Blog

Probably my most "exhaustive work" to date has been my camera trap blog. I started the blog in 2009 as an experiment to see whether it will work as an easier way of sharing my camera trapping results with friends and family. As you can see it worked and I'm still blogging. One of the unexpected positive things to have come from this blog has been getting to "know" kindled spirits from across the world. The blog has also been a great way of learning about nature.

Camera Trap Help

I sometimes get asked for help by people unfamiliar with (or new to) camera traps. I then usually ramble on about what ever pops into my mind (which can be scary and overwhelming to some). That is why I decided to start putting together a website to help guide new camera trappers to find their feet and make informed decisions when buying and using their camera traps.

You can find the camera trap help section on my blog over here.

Wildlife Software

When I started working as a software programmer I found (and still find) the work extremely pointless and boring. That was one of the reasons I decided to start developing my own wildlife sighting database. The other reason was that I couldn't find any existing application that fulfilled my needs. I don't like the idea of using an online site to store all of my personal data. You never know when the site might change or become inaccessible. I also have a lot of media (photos and videos) which would be very difficult to manage online.

Thus WildLog was born. I've spent a ridiculous amount of time working on it, but luckily I've enjoyed working on it. There is always a huge list of new features I would like to add, but since it is a hobby project I only have a limited amount of time I can work on it. I've decided to share the application in the hopes that other people might find it useful as well. I know it's far from perfect, but I enjoy using it. I personally feel that it is still the best fit for my needs.
