About these pages

Nature in Shetland

winner of a Shetland Environment Award 2004

 

 

These pages were originally known as the Shetland Wildlife pages and were constructed by Kevin Osborn on the Zetnet website in 1996, in the Zetnet Special Interest Groups (SIGs) pages.

In late 1999 they moved to a new address at wildlife.shetland.co.uk on the Shetland Internet server (which was also run by Zetnet). They were a great success, averaging over 1000 hits per week and peaking at almost 10,000 hits in October 2001.

In 2003, the main responsibility for the pages was taken over by Mike Pennington and they moved to nature.shetland.co.uk but still on the Shetland Internet server.

In 2005, there was another change as the service provider changed hands, with the site moving to www.nature-shetland.co.uk and hosted now by easyspace. During 2007, Rob Fray began to share the responsibility for updating news pages.
