Sightings at Attenborough Nature Reserve
Attenborough Nature Centre (ANC) is an award winning visitor and education facility surrounded by the tranquil waters of the beautiful Attenborough Nature Reserve in Nottinghamshire. It was opened in 2005 by Sir David Attenborough himself.
We originally took over their website in 2011 when we created a whole new design and developed a content management system so that ANC could manage the website themselves for the very first time. This latest re-build had some new aims and new technical factors to consider.
It was important for the Attenborough website to reflect the interactivity of the nature reserve and centre, showing how much it has to offer in terms of the wildlife itself, the activities, educational programmes and corporate opportunities. There also needed to be a more integrated connection between Attenborough Nature Centre and its parent organisation, Nottinghamshire Widlife Trust. Therefore the design needed to be brought up to date with the new Wildlife Trusts’ branding and clear links to NWT’s own website. A responsive site was key as a growing number of Attenborough’s visitors access the website via mobile and tablets.
Live web cam feeds are shown, along with wildlife videos around the website providing visitors with a real-time view of the reserve and an insight into the habitats there. The already very popular ‘sightings’ section was enhanced and expanded upon with the addition of images and videos of resident species, the facility for visitors to send details of their own sightings, an archive of previous sightings and links to useful products in the Attenborough shop.
