WeNaturalists, an Eco-Social Network, launched a mobile and web application specially crafted for people associated with nature. WeNaturalists aims to bring together organizations, professionals, and enthusiasts who work for nature and everyone passionate about it.
WeNaturalists is the ultimate destination that allows you to connect and interact with millions of people from around the world. It caters to people from varied backgrounds like forest rangers, nature guides, environmentalists, conservationists, climate change specialists, wildlife and nature photographers, researchers, botanists and zoologists, academicians, media professionals, eco-businesses, organizations, institutions, and charities working towards education, conservation and eco-tourism, and many more.
Bringing this community together is the most critical requirement of today, and WeNaturalists is trying to meet that.
WeNaturalists can be distinguished by its vision to be an ecosystem with the potential to become a unified voice for nature, and a catalyst for key decisions and discussions that could determine the future of nature.
The application is user-friendly and in addition to the common social features, there are many specialized tools like Explore, which aggregates global nature news in a single place; Projects, which helps in finding jobs or assignments or attending events or trainings; Experience Showcase, which is a visual timeline of the work done by someone on an assignment in collaboration with multiple people; Causes, where everyone believing in an environmental cause can express opinions, exchange solutions and talk about their work for that cause; Circles, which is an exclusive invite-only community feature for like-minded people to engage; and many more features like forums, polls, private and public messaging rooms.
On the launch of the transformational ecosystem, Amit Banka, Founder & CEO, WeNaturalists remarked, “WeNaturalists is founded with a sole mission to empower people and their passion for nature, which will lead to a better future for us and the coming generations. We need to find a way to coexist and thrive with nature. To achieve this, everyone will have to start talking the same language and work on the same mission – now, more than ever! Hence, this global ecosystem dedicated to nature is the need of the hour. It requires us to come together – spread awareness, openly discuss our thoughts, talk about our purpose, share our work, find global solutions, and collaborate with the community to create better opportunities for everyone. It is estimated that more than 500mn people and 10mn+ organizations working in the field of nature, conservation, and eco-tourism. More than 850mn people contribute to the causes of nature annually. We realized that with the increasing intensity of the nature crises, there needs to be an ecosystem where all the efforts of this community are recognized, and the impact is magnified on a global stage. WeNaturalists is the first step in this direction.”
Founded in 2019, WeNaturalists began with a simple motive – to give a purpose to people’s passion for nature by empowering them with specialized tools. This ecosystem enables people and organizations to showcase their work, explore new opportunities globally, network with peers, collaborate on work and research, contribute to environmental causes, participate in global events, share knowledge, learn new skills, contribute to building a sustainable future, inspire and be inspired.
With an easy-to-use interface and custom-made tools, the mobile and web applications have been welcomed by the people-of-nature from over 100 countries since its launch in November 2020.
WeNaturalists is empowering the voices of individuals and organizations by enabling them to come together on a global platform to connect and make a larger impact.
