Weird and wonderful wildlife star in hi res photo galleries, stunning videos

For Immediate Release
New Wild Plant Adventures Website

SAUSALITO, CA, Dec 11, 2013 – Wild Planet Adventures, the international wildlife-viewing experts, explores on its newly enhanced, interactive website a collection of the world’s most “Weird & Wonderful” wildlife in hi-res, large-format photo and video galleries of the creatures in the wild, linked to the specific trips where you can see these incredible creatures.

“With eye-popping photographs we’ve been able to get viewers as close as possible to real travel moments and the exhilaration of authentic wildlife encounters,” says Josh Cohen, Wild Planet Adventures founder/owner. “We’ve used as many authentic photographs as we could on the new website, submitted directly by our travelers and guides. There will also be upcoming photo contests for travelers to submit their photos, with winning photos published on our website and our annual catalog.”

For those with a penchant for unusually weird and wonderful wildlife, there’s a special tab that lists the strangest of animals, where they can be seen on each trip, and even the likelihood of sightings. On this completely re-designed website visitors can cross-reference destinations and wildlife they’d like to see.
“Our new website provides substantial detail in a pleasing format that’s like taking a journey itself. You’re not overwhelmed by information the minute you visit the home page,” promises Cohen. “In the process of traveling through our site, you learn more about the world’s most amazing wildlife and where they can be seen.”

Throughout the site the emphasis is about telling stories about the destinations, the wildlife, and the people, all relayed by stunning photographs. A delightfully playful story of a meerkat and a lemur traveling together is told through photos as a unique way of introducing a revolutionary new travel companion-finder for single travelers. And if you stumble upon a “page Not Found 404 Error” get ready for a funny surprise.

Wild Planet Adventures’ new TravelBuddies program is also introduced on the company’s redesigned website. This is a revolutionary companion finder for single travelers seeking to travel together, share rooms or start a custom departure. Single travelers willing to share a room can avoid paying hefty “single supplements” which can equal up to 50% of the trip cost by finding a trip companion through TravelBuddies. Best of all, the new TravelBuddies service is completely free.

Other new content-rich, interactive enhancements to the site include:
  • Large, Hi-res images and videos that bring each trip to life.
  • Illustrated route maps pinpointing the itinerary.
  • Detailed pricing descriptions and departure dates.
  • Photos and descriptions of all accommodations.
  • Social media integration – Facebook, Twitter, You Tube and Pinterest icons that allow users to share content and notify friends when they are considering a trip or have reserved space.  
In addition to exclusive viewings of wildlife in their natural habitats, guests learn about best practices to conserve regions and wildlife by visiting eco-responsible rescue centers and research organizations. Expert biologist and naturalist guides operate under strict protocols to minimize impact and habituation. Trip participation also assists conservation efforts.
