The Nature’s Stronghold site is designed to allow you to easily
access information about wildlife reserves throughout the world. The
navigational section of the site is arranged by continent, country and
reserve. For example, if you want to learn more about the reserves of
Africa in general, you will go to the Africa selection link. If you want to learn
more about the reserves of, say, Botswana, drop drown one level to the
Botswana link. Then, if you want to learn more about a specific reserve in
Botswana, as Chobe, drop down one further level to that reserve.
An important additional feature of the site is that each reserve displays
a box below the text information that has three links. The Chobe Reserve example is shown here:
Visit TripAdvisor® - takes you to www.tripadvisor.com to get more information about flights and where to stay in order to plan a trip to the reserve. It will automatically drop you in to the TripAdvisor page dealing with the reserve you have been studying on the Nature's Strongholds site.
A live GoogleMap® - is a site page showing a live, scaleable Google Map of the region you are studying, with all the reserves in that region marked.
More About the Reserves in Botswana - leads you to information in
greater depth about the reserves in this area. Often you can follow other links within
these to get even more information.
In most cases, there also is additional information about local and
regional conservation organizations active in specific areas. This
information is shown at the country and reserve level by banners
identifying these organizations. Again, to take Botswana and Chobe as an
example, you will see banners for several conservation organizations
active in the region. Clicking any of these banners will take you to that
conservation group’s website.
The overall objective of Nature’s Strongholds Foundation is to
strengthen support for the wonderful places described in our website. We
welcome your support directly to our Foundation (see how to support
Nature’s Strongholds Foundation on our home page), and also urge
you to support conservation organizations active in regions in which you
have particular interest.
