SONIC THE HEDGEHOG

SONIC THE HEDGEHOG

Hedgehogs are a delight to see. So rarely do we spot them wandering about in the garden, looking for food. There has been a noticeable decline in hedgehog sightings in the UK. But, some places are taking care of rescue hedgehogs and encouraging the protection of their habitat.

Meet Sonic. He is a young hedgehog, brought in to Prickly Ball Farm from South Devon. Many hedgehogs are found with injuries due to garden strimmers and mowers. It’s important to garden mindfully and keep an eye out for wildlife that might be living in your garden.

AN EVENING WITH LEVISON WOOD

AN EVENING WITH LEVISON WOOD

Levison Wood is a British writer, explorer and photographer. Last night, I ventured to the Hall for Cornwall – fighting against the ‘Beast from the East’ snowstorm, to experience an evening with Levison Wood and his good friend Alberto Caceres. Levison gave a talk about travel and why we put ourselves through the trials and tribulations of adventure. He shared video clips from his journeys around the world, and comical tales from his many encounters with the people he met along the way. Levison discussed the DRD4-7r gene, nicknamed the “wanderlust gene,” because of its link with increased levels of impatience and curiosity.

AN EVENING WITH BRUCE PARRY

AN EVENING WITH BRUCE PARRY

Last night was spent with Bruce Parry, at The Eden Project. He was showing his new film, Tawai. Bruce has spent years working on this project, hoping to reach our hearts with this story. This film is no comparison to his TV shows on the BBC. I’ve watched Bruce Parry for years, and love what he has brought to the screen. But this film was an entirely new experience – one I felt a deep connection to.

Upon arrival, guests were gathered in the canopy of the rainforest biome. We were treated with canapes made from jungle food – and donuts.
