WELCOME

SKUA Team

SKUA Nature Group has created and manages the first project of Nature Reserves entirely developed for and dedicated to NatureTourism and Nature Photography. A new kind of offer, different from a simple itinerary in a destination or a photographic session in a hide, it’s a world entirely conceived and organised for nature lovers.

Our team also works in different countries in the creation of nature itineraries for territorial enhancement, independently or in collaboration with local agencies and authorities, to provide great birding and photographic expeditions in remote and evocative places with the support of the most experienced group in Europe in this field.

From North to South, from East to West, the Network aims to include the best and exclusive nature areas of all Europe and more, to gather them and strengthen their preservation. A large Network, made to photograph and observe all the target species of the different countries and to have the opportunity to develop useful and concrete conservation and research actions to preserve these beautiful but fragile areas.

TRAINING & RESEARCH

The main aim of our project is to help nature conservation through nature tourism. Managing different kinds of big nature areas in several countries allows us to develop a network inside the Network: in lots of our reserves there are biological stations that we open to universities, research groups, professionals, etc.


All that in collaboration with our team.We can provide all the logistic support (vehicles as boats or 4x4 jeeps, biological station, laboratories, accommodation, meals, etc.) and our deep knowledge of the place and animal movements.


Our team is also running conservation actions thanks to part of the incomes from nature tourism’s activities in the reserves (as reintroduction of native species, habitat management, habitat conservation, species monitoring, etc.) and volunteers or people that would like to join our projects to learn practical skills in the nature field are always welcome.

Besides the reserves, our job is also supporting tour operators, companies, local istitutions and public authorities of other countries in the development of a complete nature tourism offer. Our team deals with the creation of nature tourism itineraries that meet the requirements of the international market, making all the necessary ground reconnaissance of the sites, pointing out the most interesting species, places and paths to propose, the best solutions in terms of accommodation facilities and logistics depending on the different target clientele to reach and in general providing a professional support on the development of the whole project (from the training of local guides to the creation of promotional material and websites,etc.).At a bigger scale,we support governing bodies in the development of a nature tourism offer that covers the entire country, involving local companies, accommodation facilities and others operators in a network, to create a local economy based on this increasing market.

Thanks to our BLOG, constantly updated by our reserve coordinators and hide-keepers, you can keep informed in real time about new photographic opportunities, new hides, events or expeditions.

NEWS & PHOTO BLOG

Everyday we post on our social networks images taken by our hide-keepers and clients from the several international reserves included in the Network, but in these websites is indeed difficult to keep track and see the older ones. To give you a complete and updated overview we archive the best pictures in our photo gallery.

PHOTO GALLERY

Wherever we work we set logistic or representative offices and visitor centres where to give to visitors updated information and take care of the organization of nature tourism-related activites. In some of our centres there are little nature shops where it is possible to find technical equipments, books and bird guides, and nature gadgets.

OUR BROCHURE

INNATE NETWORK

TOURISM CONSULTANCY

An incredible number of species to photograph in comfortable new generation hides. In every reserve, thanks to expert guides, you can find information and advices to take amazing pictures of target species, as well as to photograph less required but still very interesting and particular species.

Depending on the season, you can plan your experience and enjoy close encounters with your favourite species.

SKUA Nature’s consultancy work can basically be described as follows: we come to see your areas, your locations, what you have to offer in terms of wildlife species and photo opportunities, which is the standard of food and accommodation on offer. After having seen and checked all of this, SKUA will be able to make a development plan for the area, which will obviously be very different from place to place, depending on which are the real opportunities for each area.


SKUA Nature Group has created and manages the first project of Nature Reserves entirely developed for and dedicated to NatureTourism and Nature Photography. A new kind of offer, different from a simple itinerary in a destination or a photographic session in a hide, it’s a world entirely conceived and organised for nature lovers.

Our Network regularly adds new reserves and nature areas, that we carefully select among the several proposals of collaboration that we receive, on a weekly basis, from landowners or public institutions.

Our idea to develop exclusive reserves entirely dedicated to nature tourism has proved to be a succesful project, as it allows nature areas, private or public, to have a specific connotation and become points of reference for this kind of responsible and respectful tourism.
