2. What kind of content will the walks focus on? Why is this topic a priority?

Our photo tour will capture people and animals living in their natural habitat and homes and also take the opportunity to capture some of the beautiful and unique houses in these areas that we shall visit.

3. How have you let relevant Wikimedia communities know about this proposal? You are required to provide links to on-wiki pages to inform these communities about your proposed work. Examples of places where this can be done include community discussion pages, affiliate discussion pages, or relevant project talk pages.
You may also provide information about external social media channels you may be using.

Below is the social media channel I will be using to inform people about the project.


4. How will you let participants know about the photowalk? In what ways will you be communicating with them?
For example, these can include on-wiki spaces, social media channels, mailing lists, messaging apps, or physical/online gatherings.

Since this is a two - man project, there will be no call for participants but yet still we shall let people know about it in these communication channels .
