About us

Remember those old nature books?

The dusty ones; you can still find them in used bookshops and elderly aunts’ houses – full of whimsical descriptions and fanciful illustrations explaining the natural world.

We love those.

We strove to make Wonk on the Wildlife enjoyable for all the same reasons. This project is on hiatus right now, but we came bearing fun illustrations and mirthful explanations of the latest and coolest ecological research.

Our insignia is a platypus, because platypuses are rad.
