There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Need help in categorization of wild animals

I need help from other sincere members for adding category on the website about wildlife photography. This website will be created for wildlife photographers to post their picture of wild animals. Website is under construction and I need help in adding categories. You can take example from (INW) . I need something similar but better categorization for wild animals.

Our website will be more modern and good viewable on mobile and computer. Also unlike INW we are allowing whole world's photographer to upload their pictures.

So please help me in categorization of current living wild animals which are photographed by wildlife photographers.

I admire your vision and effort Sanjay, this place looks to have great leadership.

One way that might look nice is:
-Area (North, Southeast, etc.)
-Type (Kingdom)
-Species (depending on area and country, we can have more specific lists of species, making the directory easier to navigate through)
-And a miscellaneous area for landscapes etc.

As a whole, an encyclopedia-ish, directory type categorization.

Agree with Tigerluver,

Your ambition to grow this forum into something that truly will be a mecca for nature fans is something to be proud of.
Well done Sanjay, your hard work is greatly appreciated.

  • I have included some most famous species names which are widely photographed by wildlife photographers.
  • We can not use tough scientific name, because keeping familiar and most popular name help us to bring common wildlife lovers.
  • We can not use all names, but only those which are common and widely captured in camera.

Let me know what do you think ? And correct me if I am wrong. If everything gone right, I will launch photography website on this Monday. So if you have friends who are wildlife photographers then please invite them to join and share their photos.

Good initiative, Sanjay. The list is ok. I would follow Tigerluver in that I would add the correct (Latin) name for each species. This will enable members and readers to get familiar with both the Latin name and the position of each species.
