Who are we?
Based in Sussex, England, and headed by natural history writer and editor Neil Harwood, we are a team of writers and researchers who are united (and driven) by a love of nature and of learning.
What We Do
Active Wild is a place where people of all ages can come to learn about the natural world. We provide well-researched, in-depth articles on natural history. We also produce a range of inspiring books and publications.
Our articles are primarily aimed at young people aged between 8 and 16, but are also suitable for younger (and older) readers too.
By presenting information in English that is simple and clear – with no patronizing ‘child talk’ – our website appeals to a wide range of ages.
We include explanations and / or definitions of long words and scientific concepts. Exciting photographs will interest younger visitors.
Neil went into publishing after university. He worked on a number of successful educational publications both as an editor and a writer. He also helped to create the syllabus for a range of popular international qualifications.
Neil has always loved the outdoors, and is a keen birdwatcher. He’s also long been fascinated by the educational potential of the internet.
Although we’re based in England, we have customers from all over the world. For this reason, our store prices are in US dollars. We use a highly-trusted payment provider for all transactions and downloads, and operate a 7 day no-quibble refund policy. We’re only happy if you’re happy.
Thanks to a dynamic content production schedule, and our boundless enthusiasm and passion for the natural world, Active Wild attracts a large number of visitors every day. If you would like to be part of the Active Wild story, then please contact us.
