I began this website as a matter of curious interest as to just what is out there in our green isles, but it's since grown far beyond what I could have possibly imagined it to be.
Since beginning BeastWatch UK back in 2001, I've received or obtained reports myself from a Chinchilla in a Postbox, to Piranha in the Thames .... And more .... However, as I've learnt a little more about how some of these exotics end up in our countryside's, and meeting with many exotic pet owners, these animal and birds etc. are no longer viewed as statistics, but more like victims of tragic circumstance. And I feel it's now time to do something about this, as these creatures face many dangers whilst still out there, from cars to a more apex predator, even our harsh winters, or facing starvation because they haven't learnt to fend for themselves, so from the moment these exotics, step from out of their enclosures, their life's clock begins to tick.
So we at BeastWatch UK have devised a way to try and prevent the worst from happening. We already have a number of voluntary helpers up and down the country, to help search for and retrieve these creatures from their nemesis, this is mainly organised and run by exotic keepers themselves, for exotic keepers who have lost their precious pets..... BUT WE STILL NEED MORE, FOR THIS DREAM TO BECOME A REALITY.
I'd like to thank all those people who have helped us so far, both members and witnesses by contributing to this site with their reports and stories of interest, without whom BeastWatch UK may not have been possible.
If you find any reports yourself, you think may be of relevance to us, then please send them in, or if you'd like to become more involved then we're always looking for volunteers to work as regional coordinators, active members or even monitors for all areas. To learn more about these roles within BeastWatch UK, then you'll find further information if you click on either of the roles available when you hover your mouse over "VOLUNTEER" top right of this link... http://beastwatchuk.yolasite.com/
On 26th July 2013, due to suffering with a sudden onset of spinal issues, I couldn't bare to see my friend in pain any longer, so his life was extinguished on that Friday afternoon at approx 18.00hrs, he fell peacefully into his final sleep, but I look forwards to meeting my best friend again on the other side.
