Into The Wild

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.
