WILDLIFE.FISH empowers and encourages you to radically change your impact on the world.


On the surface, WILDLIFE.FISH is an online magazine + map of fish and wildlife biologists, projects, and events around the world. But what we really do is leverage the power of networking to help professional biologists grow their audience, influence, impact, and opportunities.




Scientists bear more responsibility than ever to ensure their work is heard, understood, and considered across a wide spectrum of decision-making processes, from individual to institutional to political.


No small feat.

It's noisy out there

It’s tough for fish & wildlife professionals to get eyes on their work.
And it’s tough for fish & wildlife enthusiasts to get unfiltered news, straight from the source.

Science-based information is scattered.

And non-science social networks have a staggering impact on public perceptions and professional biology.



It's lonely in here

Making the most of online tools and social media is vital to science communication, but producing content that no one sees is depressing.

The required effort can be overwhelming, high maintenance, and low reward.

Website traffic is dismal unless someone has a reason to find you.

Search engines demote and reject sites that are inactive or not mobile-friendly.

Blog posts are invisible unless you're an SEO wizard.

Social media accounts take a long time to grow and need on-going maintenance.

And advertising is expensive.

Building an engaging online presence is tough if you’re doing it on your own.



But what if we did it together?


Created BY biologists, FOR biologists,
WILDLIFE.FISH is a hub for member profiles and project websites that are networked and promoted to help you build visibility, influence, and impact.



I’m Pam, a fish and wildlife biologist working to improve credibility, impact, and opportunities in our profession.

I created WILDLIFE.FISH because I believe that building a networked online presence with strategic outreach and publicity is the best way for fish and wildlife projects and professionals to build visibility, credibility, influence, and impact.





With WILDLIFE.FISH You Can...

 

Build Your Audience, FAST

Leverage the WILDLIFE.FISH network to build a targeted, engaged audience that's eager to hear from you.

We'll promote your work to WILDLIFE.FISH subscribers and followers via email, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and blog features.

 

Keep Your Work Visible

Seasonal projects? Sporadic updates? No problem. Your WILDLIFE.FISH audience is ready when you are.

Leverage the WILDLIFE.FISH community-based platform to keep eyes on your work, even if you don't have a website or social media accounts.

 

Boost Your Altmetrics

My what? Your Altmetrics Score. That colourful doughnut that measures how much airtime your publication gets, and makes publishers rave about your clever research, writing, and science communication.

 

Engage Your Partners

Scratching your head when you reach the 'describe your outreach plan' section on funding applications?

Leverage WILDLIFE.FISH to show partners and funders that you have a solid project outreach & communication plan.

You can even create password-protected websites on the WILDLIFE.FISH network to share private updates with your partners as your projects progress.

   

Connect with Others

Connect with other researchers, projects, and events in your area + around the world.

Plus, take advantage of WILDLIFE.FISH resources and member benefits as the network grows.

   

Amplify Your Results

Leverage the power of the WILDLIFE.FISH community-based platform, content marketing, and social media to advertise your projects and events.

 

All for a fraction of the cost of traditional website development, social media management, and marketing services.


 

The alternative?



Every biologist pays for their own web domains and hosting accounts, hiring web designers at $1,500 - $20,000 per site, and site managers at $75/hr, and social media marketing at $50 to $1,500 per post (yes, really!)

Or, to keep costs manageable we each struggle with Do-It-Yourself options, navigating web platforms and technology, domain renewals and transfers, site upgrades and security updates, the overwhelm of social media strategies, … hoping that we’ll see the rewards for our effort…some day.



Together, we can maximize returns on our effort, keep costs reasonable, and leverage the power of networks to build visibility, credibility, influence, and impact for fish and wildlife projects - large and small - worldwide.
