Wild Animals on Google Maps


Have you ever wondered where your nearest zoo is? Or maybe you want to know where you can go to see some llamas.

WildlifeNearYou is a new website (it launched yesterday) that allows nature lovers to share information and photographs about zoos, nature reserves and other wildlife locations.

The site features a simple search engine that allows you to search for locations for specific animals. For example, search for 'llamas near Brighton' and WildlifeNearYou will tell you the nearest places to Brighton that you can go to see some llamas.

The site uses Google Maps to show the location of each zoo or nature reserves etc. Each page is illustrated with user photographs of the animals or photographs imported from Flickr alongside the address and other details of each establishment.
