A Chat with Mya Bambrick (Recorded Live at Global Birdfair 2022)

August 8, 2022

Something I love about doing this show is finally meeting people that I have spoken with, heard of or been a fan of (or all three) & this episode is exactly that. I finally got the chance to meet & interview birder, naturalist & Leica ambassador Mya Bambrick.

Mya has had a super impressive career at such a young age from a conservation background to science communication & wildlife filmmaking, including featuring in a new short film, Skyward. It was a pleasure to hear about all this stuff direct from Mya.

A Chat with Indy Greene & George Hassall (Recorded Live at Global Birdfair 2022)

A Chat with Indy Greene & George Hassall (Recorded Live at Global Birdfair 2022)

August 1, 2022

I won't lie, this was like having Ant & Dec on the show BUT whilst at Global Birdfair it was great to sit down & talk with 2 people that have featured on the show before & to simply have a good chin wag about nature.

Whilst having 2 people on that are under the category of "THE YOUTH", I wanted to grab the chance to ask Indy & George what it feels like to deal with the climate crisis at an age where they may well directly be impacted by it.

The First 1000 Acres by Real Wild Estates with Benedict MacDonald (Recorded Live at Global Birdfair)

The First 1000 Acres by Real Wild Estates with Benedict MacDonald (Recorded Live at Global Birdfair)

July 25, 2022

This is the first episode recorded LIVE at Global Birdfair 2022!

There has been A LOT of talk & action for rewilding (or wilding, whichever you prefer) over the last few years with many different models, but one thing we haven't spoken much about on Into The Wild yet is how to do this......as a business model.

Someone who has done this though is conservationist, author & head of nature restoration at Real Wild Estates, Benedict MacDonald. Benedict dives in to tell us about how Real Wild Estates works & what the focuses are for landowners they work with & the local surrounding community.

Wild City with Florence Wilkinson

Wild City with Florence Wilkinson

July 18, 2022

It's no secret that I love talking about urban & city wildlife. Living in London, I like to shout about the nature that I get to see daily that others, in more rural areas, may not often see. So this week I was super excited to chat to author of Wild City & nature enthusiast Florence Wilkinson.

Florence shared the reason why she wanted to create a book not only about wildlife in Urban areas, but about bizarre populations of certain species that seemed to thave thrived in city spaces in unusual ways.

Ladybirds are up there with the bumblebee as one of the most loved & celebrated insects. From lovable characters in kids films to being used as designs on kids clothing, you'd be hard to come by someone who doesn't know what one is. Joining me this week to shine some light on these fascinating beetles is president of the Royal Entomology Society, entomologist & ecologist, Prof. Helen Roy.

Helen tells all on how ladybirds captured her heart & where her love for them has taken her. She also gives us the juicy gossip of the hidden world of several different species.

Animal Rights Activism within Conservation with Dominic Dyer

Animal Rights Activism within Conservation with Dominic Dyer

July 4, 2022

WE ARE BACK!

I hope you missed Into The Wild because we missed you! Our annual break is done & now time to write about the show.

If you are active on social media & follow nature & conservation content, then some of you may have noticed that animal rights activism is quite often connected with wildlife conservation, but how connected are they? To find out more I spoke with animal rights campaigner, Dominic Dyer.

I asked Dom where he things we have got things right in the UK & where he believes we have got things wrong. We also discuss the connection & ways that animal rights activism is connected & what it's done for wildlife conservation. We also managed, due to have apposing views, to sneak in a chat about trophy hunting, something we both agreed is needed more often.

Regenesis with George Monbiot

Regenesis with George Monbiot

May 30, 2022

Before I sit & type the blurb to the show, I need to tell you that this episode is the last show until July. Ryan & Oscar are taking 4 weeks off to work on Into The Wild's big project, Beyond The Project.  Speak to you in a month!!

Farming. A global activity. For some people it is more than a job, it's a culture, a life, a family history but for the planet, could it be one of the most ecologically damaging? On our last episode before our mid year break, I speak with environmentalist & environmental journalist George Monbiot about his new book, Regenesis.

In this book, George is stunned by the life he starts seeing in the soil under his feet. This lead him on to wondering about the global farming systems & what it might be doing to life on this planet. I chat to George about what it took researching this book, what he learnt & how he feels about the potential backlash from farmers who dedicate their life, to producing food for people.

If you'd like to keep up to date with George, you can follow him on social media @GeorgeMonbiot

George's book is available here

Right to Roam with Nadia Shaikh & Nick Hayes

Right to Roam with Nadia Shaikh & Nick Hayes

May 16, 2022

We bang on about connecting with nature & the importance to get outside & see. We CONSTANTLY say "people won't protect what they don't know about or love". So when you learn that in England, we (the public) only have access to 8% of the land......makes you a little bit concerned eh?

Two people that think this is bonkers & are doing something I love (actually doing something about it) are Right to Roam campaigners Nadia Shaikh & Nick Hayes. Nadia & Nick explain all from why this means so much to them & what the real situation is out there regarding access to this place we call England. However, it's not just as simple as access, Nadia also explains the barriers that exist for black, Asian & minority ethnic people who want to or worse, don't even consider, that areas of the countryside is for them.

Sky Dancer Day & Writing for the Youth with Gill Lewis

May 9, 2022

One thing it's easy to forget to do is actually stop & celebrate wildlife. Learn about it & go find it sure, but simply celebrate it or a majestic moment is easy to forget. On this week's episode we are making sure we absolutely do not forget to do that as we sit back & talk with vet, author & fan of the wildlife world, Gill Lewis about the upcoming Sky Dancer Day.

Gill shares all about what this celebration is all about & what can be expected from this years event & also a bit more about another day later in the year, Hen Harrier Day. 

We also get a chance to discuss Gill's books & how writing for the youth & encouraging them to be creative too, can help them engage more with the natural world.

Sky Dancer Day takes place May 14th 2022 with more info here
