The WWL Story
Andy Answers The Call Of The Wild
I heard “Where is the wildlife?” everyday from visitors in Estes Park, Colorado, the gateway to the Rocky Mountain National Park. So did my clients in the hospitality industry. It was a valid question since the 3 million tourists that come every year to soak in nature wanted to experience wildlife in their environment. Yet it was a question that also echoed of people’s disconnect to nature and was typically followed by watching tourists do insane things when they got near wildlife. Parents would put grass into the hands of their toddlers and scoot them up in their strollers to get near the elk to feed them. You could even watch adults trying to put their children on top of wild animals for a ride! The local jokes began to sound more and more disturbing as town residents told of tourist wanting to know “When do they let the elk out?” or “When do the deer turn into elk?” or “Can we pet the beavers?”.
Since I own a technology company I wanted to find a way that technology could both promote and protect nature and wildlife. Wildlife Tourism is a growing industry all over the world and people are hungry to see what we have not squandered over the decades. I also wanted to design a web/app platform that could serve communities globally and assist in promoting sustainable tourism. Offering a tool like WWL was a way to assist my clients, my resort town and each and every region in the world where people want to experience wildlife. It wasn’t enough to simply design a program that could spot and share wildlife, it was essential that the program also do its best to protect and collect data from world citizens for the sake of our future generations. – Andy Pizer, Millennium Group
