Welcome to the episode 7 of our ParkBathe podcast, getting our hands dirty as we dig into conservation, environmentalism and giving back to nature.
What is conservation? What is ReWilding? Kirsten and I shed some light on these topical themes and ponder if activities like forest bathing encourage pro-environmental behaviours.
We hear from conservationists, environmental and re-wilding experts at Rewilding Britain, and Trees for Life and find some helpful ways to best support nature, whether that’s in our gardens, allotments, in our kitchens, online or on a larger scale. We hear from Gonzovationist Ceri Levy and author of the Joyful Environmentalist, Isabel Losada along with a host of nature experts - we've left no rotting log unturned ;)
We promise you'll discover something new and you might find you understand the nuances of the conservation battle a little bit more too - and even feel inspired to take action. We have tips on where to start green volunteering locally. There are TONS of links in today's show notes too and check out the BONUS.
