This website was created by Mihir and Ameet. Our passion for wildlife drove us to see the world; we now utilize the Internet to reach people across the globe and share this with them. This is one way that we can contribute to the preservation of the natural world which has provided us so much fun, adventure and opportunity to learn.


The idea for these kinds of websites - San Francisco Bay Area Wildlife, Yucatan Wildlife and Peru Wildlife - was born out of necessity. As we were doing research for our spring 2005 trip to the Yucatan peninsula, we found out that it was difficult to get advance information to help plan the trip. The information on the Web was hard to find and scattered across many sources. The good information was mixed up with lots of not-so-good stuff. We found something similar as we planned a trip to Peru.

This website - San Francisco Bay Area Wildlife - is focused on an area closer to home. It is intended to be a portal to useful and selected information about the wonderful wildlife of the San Francisco Bay Area. These pages are not expected to replace all the good information that is already out there - and more is being added all the time. But they should provide a great starting point for an exciting journey into the natural world of the Bay area.
