I am Margarita, the creative mind behind The Wildlife Diaries– a wildlife travel blog dedicated to wildlife watching and wilderness travel.
My background is in wildlife conservation, and my passions are wildlife photography and travel writing. My stories and images are regularly featured on Matador Network and have also appeared in Sunday Telegraph, Sun Herald, Wildlife Secrets, Talking Lifestyle Radio, Frommer’s, Travelstoke and Weekend Notes.
What I do
I travel the globe in search of wildlife and wild places. A few years ago, I set myself on an ambitious quest to see all 40 species of wild cats in their natural habitat.
In my search for the cats, I explore some of the most remote and biodiverse places on Earth and bring back unique content that I share with my readers.
The aim of the Wildlife Diaries is to promote adventure travel through evocative storytelling and vivid imagery and to inspire people to explore the natural world and the incredible wildlife that lives in it.
When not roaming the wilds, I research and explore natural attractions around Sydney to find the best places to experience nature and see Australia’s unique wildlifeon day trips from Sydney.
What I bring to my readers and the companies I work with
To my readers, I offer tips on where to see different types of wildlife, suggested itineraries and best sustainable tour operators.
I provide inspirational, evocative destination features that spotlight rarely-visited, ‘under the radar’ destinations as well as practical information on how to visit them and how to get the most out of the experience.
To the companies I work with, I offer a loyal audience of engaged travellers who are interested in discovering new destinations and enjoy exploration and adventure travel.

What it’s about
Off the beaten track luxury in Emerging Destinations and Hidden Gems in locations already known
Keen Travellers 35+ who have the disposable income and taste to choose boutique hotels and a passion for exploration and adventures. They most enjoy doing something that is different and unique to the place that they are visiting – whether it is a meal made from nearby ingredients, street art created by the local youths or a spa treatment that requires local expertise.
80% of my audience is in the UK with a London skew and 20% in the US
How are we different
In addition to a life long passion for travel I worked in marketing on big brands for nearly 20 years across Australia & London.
“My expertise in Digital Marketing ensures I bring a very commercial perspective when it comes to working with partners. I do extensive SEO research when putting together proposals to ensure there is a market for the content in which we can rank. I am very focussed on ROI and delivering quality coverage and traffic that converts into commercial results.”
How we work
Once a destination is confirmed I do extensive SEO research to develop content themes. This is critical to ensure that the blog posts written rank high on page one of google. This also allows the itinerary to be focussed on producing rich and engaging content.
These themes are agreed and discussed with the destination or client. Once confirmed I commit to coverage levels on my blog and social media platforms.
In order to increase reach I also write for several other travel blogs and websites – from A Luxury Travel Blog to Sassy Hong Kong to We are Travel Girls to Bindu Trips. Working with the client we can identify either travel blogs I already write for or new ones appropriate to the target audience and look to gain agreement to incremental coverage as appropriate.
“Unlike traditional travel media that is online I care as much as the client does about blog posts that end up on page one. I also enjoy being a marketing consultant as well as a travel blogger – identifying opportunities outside my blog such as partner sites that will assist the client in achieving their commercial goals of occupancy, visits etc”
The blog has amassed over 21K followers in less than 18 months. It has 32k monthly page views and 20k monthly sessions. Social media monthly reach is over 250K and the DA is 32.

TheTravelTart.com attracts a global readership across a wide demographic who are interested in travel destinations and experiences around the world – including budget, luxury, offbeat, and adventure travel.
But mainly, I like to write about the funny, offbeat, and downright strange aspects of world travel today – as travel wasn’t meant to be taken seriously!
Who Is The Travel Tart?
Well, I’m a self-proclaimed travel addict who will find any excuse to go travelling. I discovered I really enjoyed travelling the world when I was sent to a former war zone for work – Kosovo – as my first venture outside of Australia and New Zealand. This created a habit of visiting places that most package tourists avoid like the plague. I’ve since travelled to over 50 countries over six continents – nowhere near enough! When travelling, I like risking my life by utilising barely road-worthy forms of transport such as African mini-buses, rust bucket Cairo cabs, and flatulent camels.
What I Can Offer
• A proven track record for attracting long term targeted internet traffic that has an indefinite shelf life
• Promotion of your brand via blog traffic and multiple social media platforms, followed up by statistics and reporting to help you measure effectiveness.
Who I’ve Worked With
I’ve worked with high profile travel brands such as Visit Britain, Tourism South Africa, G Adventures, TripAdvisor, Qantas and Emirates. I use photos, videos and social media extensively to ‘show’ the story and attraction. I have also interviewed travel related personalities, such as Rick Stein, Tony Wheeler from Lonely Planet, Simon Reeve and many others.
Where I’ve appeared
I’ve been featured in a number of high profile publications, including Travel +Leisure, USA Today, Huffington Post, Men’s Health, US News, Times of India, Yahoo! Travel, Fox News USA, Reader’s Digest and the Sydney Morning Herald.

Hello! My name is LC and I run Birdgehls – a blog dedicated to the passionate exploration of Australia and beyond (particularly the Nordic countries and territories and the UK), often with an environmentally-friendly twist.
What We’re About
Sustainable travel can be a fairly dry topic to write about and Birdgehls aims to do so with a humorous twist – making the language and the message behind the post accessible to a larger audience. It was this intent that helped bring about the blog’s tagline – “Travel With a Conscience and a Sense of Humour”.
Birdgehls is also passionate about backyard travel. Travelling abroad from Australia can often be financially challenging – but no love lost there, when there’s so much to see at home in Oz. Current content focuses mainly on VIC, NSW, and TAS (Birdgehls is based in Melbourne, LC is from NSW and is obsessed with Tasmania in the understatement of the century), but I hope to branch out to other states in the near-future.
Who We Work With
In the past, Birdgehls has partnered with brands who classify themselves as eco-friendly or sustainable. After giving up plastic for a year in 2016, I realised that I needed to invest in long-lasting travel items who made the quest as simple as possible.
I also work with companies who are looking to showcase the best of what their towns/cities/states/territories/countries have on offer, so long as it has minimal environmental impact. I also delight in the truly odd and weird, maintaining an ongoing series on my blog where I spend the night in strange, quirky or unusual accommodation. This includes camping in yurts, sleeping in churches and spending the night in a Harry Potter-themed hotel!
What We Bring to Companies We Work With
Professionalism, passion and engaging copy. Birdgehls has a dedicated audience, which is growing daily. The trust of the blog’s community is of paramount importance to me – I only recommend products I’ve personally used and places I’ve visited.
