About Everywhere Wild (and Drew Haines)

Hello! Welcome to EverywhereWild! My name is Drew Haines and this is the base camp of my growing online kingdom. Here’s a little bit about me:

About Drew Haines

I’m 20 and I live in Nova Scotia, Canada. I lived in Ecuador for six years (ages 8-14). I’ve never gone to a public education system, which made traveling a lot easier. I studied with a school in California, USA so my writing style (and spelling) are in US grammar.

I don’t think I’ve suffered too much from being a homeschooled weirdo though: I finished school at 16 and I had already started my online business at 15. EverywhereWild Media publishes EverywhereWild, JustBirding, and RespectTheChocolate.

Enough about me, here’s a bit about this site:

About EverywhereWild

EverywhereWild is dedicated to giving you a glimpse into the fascinating world of animals (and maybe some special travel locations, freaky plants, and cool natural phenomena… we’ll see). I started this website because I couldn’t find an interesting or compelling website about animals.

There are many good, accurate websites out there, but they are quite boring, hard to understand, and incomplete. One site will have half the facts and another with the other half. That’s not very useful. So here, I combine all the facts I can find and write them in a compelling way; accompanied by gorgeous photos and videos.

So that’s my mission statement: to provide you with the internet’s best animal facts all in one place in an easy to understand and enjoyable way.

This blog is for everyone with a passion for learning. It will also help you in your travels; always learn about the amazing and weird animals you are hoping to see!

If there is an animal you want me to write about or a specific fact you’d like to know more about, tell me in the comments and I will do my best to cover it. Happy reading!

I just read you comments re the sally lightfoot crabs. Never heard of them, so it was fun to read about them. And the Steinbeck reference was also a terrific find. They are mentioned a coupleof times in a Picoult book Wish you Were Here. You might like. Set in the Galapagos for part of it. I’m curious what the bird is on the cover.

Hi Drew, you are so spot on! We were on 4 of the Galapagos Islands and - like you - pretended to be turtles! Your Blog brought back my fondest memories. Thank you and keep it up. Edda C., Toronto

I like your blog a lot! I do have a question, you have a picture of chocolate covered in coffee beans taken in an Italian market. Do you know which market this is? I would like to visit the place.

Thank you, Drew!

Kind regards,

Hi Drew,

My name is CJ and I am 8 years old. I really liked your article on the Japanese Giant Hornets and I was hoping to ask you a few questions for a school project. Would this be okay?

Thanks, CJ
