Getting Ryan Into Birding Part 2 with Jack Baddams, Indy Greene & Lucy Lapwing

June 7, 2021

Well, it seems like so long ago but here we are back at trying to get Ryan (me) Into Birding......*sigh*.....

Last time I spoke to Jack, Lucy & Indy about why they like birds & gave them the opportunity to 'take me under their wing' BUT THIS TIME I grabbed my binoculars, whacked my boots on & then walked to Hampstead Heath to go birding whilst talking to Jack, Indy & Lucy about what environments are best, how to listen to bird call & what to look out for among species!

UK Gamekeeping & Hunting with Charlie Jacoby

UK Gamekeeping & Hunting with Charlie Jacoby

May 17, 2021

As many of you know, Into The Wild has discussed hunting on the show before & we have discussed bird crime in the UK. It may surprise you to know that I also sometimes get DM's calling me biased due to the guests I have on my show (LOL) SO because of that, I thought, heck, why not talk to a hunter too? So where we go, on this episode I speak with Charlie Jacoby from Fieldsports TV about Gamekeeping & Hunting in the UK.

I took this opportunity to ask Charlie some questions about this topic that either, I don't know about or that I may have a few issues with. From what needs to change in UK gamekeeping to help biodiversity, why burning heather is a thing & what Charlie believes needs to happen in order to put an end to UK bird crime. Not all the answers sat well with me, I challenged where I could & I listened, that's what I ask you to do too.

If you'd like to keep up to date with Charlie & his work, you can do so via the Fieldsports YouTube channel.

Captive Reintroductions with Pete Cooper

Captive Reintroductions with Pete Cooper

May 10, 2021

"LET'S JUST GET THEM BACK IN THE WILD!" Sure, it's an easy sentence to say & definitely easy to believe but, how easy is it? This week I chat with with ecologist & naturalist Pete Cooper about how animals can go from enclosures, to the wild.

Pete goes into great detail of the reasons why we look at reintroductions of a species & what part that can play in the local ecosystems. I also ask Pete what animals he is most optimistic about making a comeback to the wilderness of the UK.

Bringing Back Some Herptile with Tom & Harvey from Celtic Reptile & Amphibian

Bringing Back Some Herptile with Tom & Harvey from Celtic Reptile & Amphibian

May 3, 2021

When we think of the youth fighting to save the planet, we think of the Greta's of the world. Starting & joining marches, creating petitions & talking with the decision makers, all very important stuff, but sometimes, the youth go at it a different way.

This week I spoke with Tom & Harvey. Two young, enthusiastic & inspiring conservationists that are running & creating a European reptile & amphibian captive breeding center, in order to release species back into the UK or to improve current populations.

I was blown away by the knowledge & maturity when talking to them both. I did also take the opportunity to ask them what they thought of the criticism their project got from some voices in the conservation world, safe to say I enjoyed their answer.

If you'd like to keep up to date with the project, you can do so on Twitter & Instagram @CelticReptile / @celtic_reptile_amphibian

Let’s Talk About Seaspiracy with Jaida Elcock & Marine Cusa

Let’s Talk About Seaspiracy with Jaida Elcock & Marine Cusa

April 19, 2021

Well, everyone else is talking about it so I thought I would too!

Seaspiracy, a film that needed to be made but when it was, was it done right or were there missed opportunities & misinformed messages? I certainly felt like there was but I don't work with the ocean so I thought I should get some help. My guests this week to answer my questions about this FISHY documentary were science communicator & co-founder of MISS- Elasmo, Jaida Elcock & marine biologist who is working to prevent illegal fishing, Marine Cusa.

I was keen to ask Jaida & Marine what points of the film they thought were good & what points they felt were.....not so spot on. Jaida explains to us the importance of getting the communication right & why certain messages in the film may not be the right ones to be pushing, whilst Marine rights some of the wrongs regarding talks about some NGO's in the film.

There's lots to unpack on this episode but let me remind you this show is not here to change your mind on Seaspiracy. This episode is here to add to the research you are hopefully doing on the topic of sustainable fishing & marine conservation.

If you'd like to keep up to date with the projects & work Jaida & Marine are working on, you can do so on Twitter @SoFISHstication & @MarSciCaf & for Instagram @marscicaf@sofishstication_

In it for the Planet with Roxy Furman

April 12, 2021

Considering this is episode 54, I think I should win a medal for this being the first time I have actively discussed veganism with a guest (I type I as sit here in a t-shirt that says "Vegan Babe".)

This week I chat with wildlife presenter & filmmaker Roxy Furman. Talking all about her love for African painted dogs to her transition to a vegan lifestyle & how this incorporates into her wildlife filmmaking. Of course we also, vegan to vegan, share our pet hates about meat eaters & other vegans!
