Support My Work

Bolster the videos; Underpin my work

The support of Patreon members (and now also YouTube memberships) bolsters my ability, and inspires me, to create better video episodes, more often. I recognize contributions as compensation for the work and time that goes into filming and editing; and I appreciate every cent. As one of the few incomes I generate off my work, it goes towards buying materials, tools and animal feed – every buck spent wisely.

Why do I do this? It takes an enormous amount of time during my normal day to record, edit and manage the channel. Members are friends and have access to the private Telegram group. They also get to see the videos ahead of time (without ads), including some exclusive videos. The ad revenue for small channels like mine is miniscule and won’t even replace an SD card for the camera.

For those who can not support me in this manner, your views, comments and likes are much appreciated. Honestly.

Funding has an effect

I don’t like advertisements, and when my funding reaches the ad-free goal, I will definitely demonetize most of the content.  I also help with funding other wildlife campaigns, improve my video frequency and quality and be able to get help on the land to start projects that would really show larger-scale concepts of simplicity. I also take input from my Patreon members to improve and change the videos. Later on, I will use the funding to replace my GoPro8 (which overheats at anything over 1080 res) and improve the audio quality with a great mic. I use the income generated from my Patreon friends to do things otherwise difficult, like obtaining building permits to launch important projects that I want to bring to you as part of a self-sufficiency journey. Thanks for considering joining up.
