Conservation & The Climate Crisis with Dr Charlie Gardner

December 5, 2022

Okay, brace yourself, we are talking about the climate crisis.

Discussing this topic is never easy & it's common to talk about the systematic issues that have & continue to cause it BUT an area that is rarely discussed is how wildlife conservation should take on board the climate crisis & it's impacts to help have more practical success. To explain in much better way, this week I am joined by conservation scientist & climate change activist, Dr Charlie Gardner.

Wildwood Trust with Paul Whitfield

Wildwood Trust with Paul Whitfield

October 31, 2022

The UK is famous for a lot, but one thing many around the world may not think of when they think of us is the fact we had & have now lost a lot of species throughout the years. One place I have visited that really shows you what we have/hand roaming this land is Wildwood Trust in Kent.

To tell me all about this fascinating wildlife collection of native or once native species & the projects they are working on is director, Paul Whitfield. From how the place started to their most recent big project, the semi release of Bison into ancient woodland.

October 24, 2022

If you say the word "wasp" you're rarely met with a response like "gah I just love them" however, it only takes a little peek into the world of wasps for someone to learn that there is MUCH more than meets the social opinion of them.

To join me this week to share the diverse world & love of the wasp is Professor Seirian Sumner. From Seirian's favourite species to the mad behaviours of some others, we even discuss why people have certain feelings about thee wonderful insects.

Living with Wolves with Hanna Petterson

Living with Wolves with Hanna Petterson

October 17, 2022

When we talk of a wolf, a number of things could come to mind. Maybe a folklore store? A character in a childhood film? An image of a woodland with a huge moon in the background? Or I'd imagine, for most of this audience, we think of an animal of great importance, both culturally & environmentally. A lost animal in the UK & throughout Europe, but one that is also coming back, to Europe that is.

Yet, do we consider how difficult or easy this can be? To bring back the wolf? What has to be done or considered & who has to be spoken to? Well one person that has spent a long time working that out is conservation social scientist Hanna Petterson & Hanna joins me on this show to have this very chat with me.

Into The Wild in Namibia Part 1

Into The Wild in Namibia Part 1

October 10, 2022

If you follow us on social media, you'll know that I recently got back from a trip to Namibia to screen our first ever film, Beyond The Trigger. Now what kind of podcaster would I be if I didn't grab some insightful wildlife conservation chats with people on my travels.

With that in mind I am super excited to share with you the first part of this special episode, Into The Wild in Namibia. In this episode, actually recorded at the later part of my trip, I travelled along with CEO of NACSO (Namibian Association for Community Based Natural Resource Management Support Organisations), Maxi Louis to a conservancy called ≠Gaingu, where I got to chat with the newly appointed conservancy manager Neville Hendricks about life as a farmer & how valuing wildlife has helped the community & the surrounding biodiversity.

Dogs & Wildlife with Zoe Macdonald & Sean McCormack

Dogs & Wildlife with Zoe Macdonald & Sean McCormack

October 3, 2022

I LOVE wildlife.......but I LOVE dogs. My two jobs, the podcast & running a professional dog walking company both (obviously) envolve, heavily, these two things, but do they, or can they, go together happily?

There's always a lot of chat about how much domestic dogs disturb wildlife or damage habitat & the answers always seem to be lost in amongst the arguments so I decided to mix the two sides together & have vet & conservationist Sean McCormack on to tell us about what the issues are & then to have professional dog walker, dog trainer & business owner Zoe Macdonald on to tell us dog owners, the best ways we can be walking our dogs without allowing them to disturb or damage wildlife.

Write to your MP to voice your anger about the #AttackOnNature here
