What We Do

Blog www.feral.typepad.com

This is my more fun public interest stuff on feral animals. The blog has become a bit moire popular lately and I'm looking to pimp it.

We have a more serious and science website (www.invasiveanimals.com) where you can understand what we do.

I do a lot of public presentations and want to direct the general public to issues on the blog.

Industry

Technology

Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - Feral animals are an important environmental issue
#2 - Science can have an impact on feral animals
#3 - Science can be fun, not deadly serious

Our Target Audience:

General public; environmentalists and farmers

Color Preferences

Don't really care. Probably should work in with www.invasiveanimals.com a bit.

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

That's your job - I'm open.

I had one design removed (I'd ranked it second) by a zealous moderator because its background somehow breached the rules. I'm not sure what that means (I got no explanation). You might want to check the website www.feral.typepad.com to check out background colours. However, I am quite open to change.

Dear CH,

This post was used on a different competition to highlight some rules of the LT (previously posted by Dazzle - Moderator for LT)


" March 22nd, 2009, 11:48am
How are you doing ? hope you are doing great. As this contest is about to come to an end, and you will be chosing the best new logo for your company, i just wanted to have your attention to some important point that you might be aware of or might not. I hope i am not miss understood by pointing out this to you and that you understand.

When the contest ends and you have made your mind and desicion about the winner logo, the winner gets the 1st place, but the 2nd and 3rd place and going on forward, 4th, 5th, 6th , etc , each one or slot should be filled with a seperate designer and different concept you found second best, third best to follow etc.

This helps towards us designers ranking and also it is a way from you to show your appreciation to the hard effort and trails put from the beginning by one designer or appreciating a nice design concept put earlier by a designer that led to developing on right direction for others and you getting the best you could at the end.

It feels frasturating for other designers and pointless of giving all the top rankings for same winner designer, while those were just a small variations of the winning design and therefore the other places 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc are not filled with different designs from a different designer.

So i hope you understood my point i was just trying to point out to you here and all the best of luck in chosing your winner logo, there are really good ones out there.

Best Regards,

Kareem "

"A feral organism is one that has escaped from domestication and returned, partly or wholly, to its wild state. The introduction of feral animals or plants, like any introduced species, can disrupt ecosystems and may, in some cases, contribute to extinction of indigenous species."

is a fox a domestic animal?

Fox and feral
Michael is right, that the fox is strictly not a feral animal because it was never actually a domestic animal and therefore didn't escape and return to the wild. Nor is a cane toad, myna bird or others feral, whereas the feral cat, wild dog and camel are truly "feral".

However, "feral" has come to encompass the wider term and I go with the more commonly understood version - the English language changes over time.

I use the term "feral" for this blog spot. But our official site uses the term "invasive animal" which is the scientifically correct (or even MORE correctly "Alien Invasive Species" for ones from outside Australia but using that term in public distracts from the message). Invasive can mean native animals (eg kangaroos or wallbies that build up in numbers because we provide water or grass - this is a REALLY controversial area).

Hope this helps.

Baby chew

I understand.

But it isn't a "rule" of LT. It's a designer desire, which I'm happy to to at the end of a contest - it is more important during a contest that CH actually rank to their preference.

I've extended for a couple of days because our Communications Manager is out of the office and I need to ask her opinion.

I am VERY appreciative of everyone's efforts and the skills of you designers is really impressive. Thanks.
