Connections with Nature is a beautiful anthology from members of the Wildlife Blogger Crowd, offering 50 moments of meeting the wild. We are members (not in the book!) so please read our post on how to help moon bears. The 50 tales remind us of the wonders of the natural world, the benefits of making connections with wildlife and wild spaces, and highlights how our lives are often a lot more entwined with the wild, than we might immediately know. The tales include:
- Barry Madden on how we can enhance life, by stepping away from the screen
- Tiffany Francis-Baker marvels at the Moon
- 7-year old Benjamin studies the details of a barn owl feather
- Alicia Hayden evokes the spectacle of the ‘moorland fairground’ at dusk.

If you ever want to know how to create a blog to help animals, visit this site! In its short life, Kate has created one of the world’s best resources to help all animals, with the high traffic being used to create campaigns against plastic, the dog meat trade, bear bile farming and more. She has managed to interview Sir David Attenborough, publish this gorgeous book and set up a worldwide network of wildlife bloggers who all support and promote each other, through social media.
