New Wiki Logo Competition!

Hello everyone! We would like to announce that we are opening a new competition today!

We would like you to design us a new logo for The British Wildlife Wiki! The current one is out dated and as The British Wildlife Wiki is coming up to 2, we thought it would be great to get the community involved and see what they could come up with! If you would like to design us a new logo please read the next few lines.

There are a few things that the logo should include:
  1. Text saying - The British Wildlife Logo
  2. Size: 250x65 pixels
  3. Try to include animal(s), Plant(s) and Landscapes etc from the British Isles.
  4. It must be colourful
  5. All images must be all your own work and totally original!
All entries must be submitted by emailing them to by the 15th November.

The winning entry will be placed as the new logo on The British Wildlife Wiki and the winner will be notified on the 16th of November.

Unfortunately there are no runner-up prizes, so make the logo the best you can to ensure you win!

Have fun making your entry and we hope to see them soon!

New Logo Competition

The British Wildlife Wiki is nearly 2. We have been thinking of ways to get the community involved more on the wiki. We had a few ideas and the best one is a competition to design a new logo for the wiki. More details will be posted on the 15th October when the competition opens :)

October News!

Soon the staff at The British Wildlife Wiki will be heading to Sea Life Adventure in Southend-on-Sea. They will be taking lots of photographs they would not usually be able to take of all kinds of marine life.

New Feature on the wiki

Our favourite contributor 'Purple Centipede' has come up with a good way to let people know when certain invertebrates are active in the UK. He is making timelines which coinside with the Distribution maps that Thomas (XCF) started with. Check out his new idea here.

The Wiki in 2012

Hey Everyone! The Wiki is coming up to it's second birthday soon on the 17th November as the previous post outlines.

This Post is about changes and content coming to the wiki in the new year.

We will be uploading bat calls and bird songs that we have recorded (they are still in the editing stage at the moment). There will be lots more photos as well as some more anatomical diagrams. We also hope to double the size of the wiki next year so when the wiki reaches it's 3rd birthday, it will have 4000 pages!

So why not get editing on the wiki today?

The Wiki's Second Birthday (mid November 2011)

The wiki will be reaching it's second birthday soon so we are making alot of effort to get some important things done on the wiki. It will be 2 on the 17th November, but before I into detail about them, may I thank all those that have helped over the past year and 10 months make the wiki what it is today!

Things we are doing:
  • Adding more articles so we have 2000.
  • Adding more categories so the wiki is easier to navigate.
  • Adding 100 more distribution maps to bird pages.
  • Adding diagrams of animals internal, external and skeletal anatomy on category pages.
  • Adding more photos and encouraging more people to upload their photos
  • Encouraging more people to join in on the wiki
The wiki has come along way in the past two years. It has seen alot of people come and leave and will see many more in the future. Everyday it grows stronger with more information and photos and that is what we love doing, building it up to be one of the best on the internet!
