To increase your chances of observing animals carefully consider the suitability of the observation site and the current conditions. Consideration for animal observations:
- an area that has varied surfaces (sand, dirt, rocks, water bodies) and vegetation (grasses, high and low plants, shrubs, trees)
- rain, snow or wind may send some animals into hiding
- the time of day will determine the types of animals observed, e.g. nocturnal, crepuscular species may be sleeping or inactive during the day
- listen while you go searching, some animals make calls and will alert you to their location
*Time allocation will be dependent on site selection and travel time.
