We have a clear objective and vision to develop GlobalTwitcher.com into the premier site for registering, keeping and sharing records of animals and plants of the world and as a consequence become a “natural” social network for global twitchers.”
The website GlobalTwitcher.com was started by Nicklas Strömberg in 2006 and has since expanded into a web application attracting users around the globe. The website has some 25,000 visits per month and 2,000 members have registered more than 2 million observations and uploaded 45,000 pictures of 18,000+ taxa. The focus has been on birds but is rapidly expanding into other kingdoms such as mammals, amphibians, insects and plants.
In January 2012, Nicklas partnered with Bengt-Eric Sjölinder and registered the private shareholding company that now owns, runs and develops GlobalTwitcher.com. The company has the financial strength to keep the website stay online. We however need the increasing number of users to sign up as contributing members (for details please go to Membership) to manage the operating and development costs.
Nicklas will continue to focus on developing and building the site further from its already unique position – a site overview can be found under About the site. Bengt-Eric will focus on managing the administrative, commercial and communication aspects of running the company.
The site also needs voluntary input from an international team of administrators. These tasks include Forum leadership, checklist reviews, country checklist updates, translation into main languages and master user support including creation of Help and FAQ sections on how to use the site. The structure is under development but includes Country Checklist Administrators to validate the accuracy of bservations. If you would like to join this team, please send an email to Bengt-Eric (email@example.com).
