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.
