Wildlifetrackers.com provides a venue from which to foster and promote the application of animal tracking skills in North America and beyond. Animal tracking has purpose in the varied applications of conservation research and monitoring, ecotourism, anti-poaching, and hunting. Purpose boosts skill levels, stimulates continuous learning, as well as encourages honesty and humility.
Wildlifetrackers.com is dedicated to the preservation of both tracking skills and the people who use them. Through the application of animal tracking skills, competent trackers gain greater credibility, and thus greater opportunities to contribute to our understanding and monitoring of ecosystems and wildlife.
