Last photos of 2018

It’s been another busy and exciting year in 2018. There always seems to be something to new to discover or learn about.

I had a weeks work experience at The Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, saw glow worms for the first time, help out with small mammal and large mammal surveys, looked around my local patch with a thermal imaging camera and helped out with a couple of badger rescues, and more importantly a badger re-release.

During 2018 I spoke on a panel with a number of other great young wildlife conservationists at Birdfair and walked with thousands through London on Chris Packham’s ‘The People’s walk for Wildlife’.



During July I was invited to be one of the Young Presenters on Chris Packham’s Bioblitz


As the sun set on the last day of 2018 we took a walk around my local patch.


I’d like to say a huge thank you for all the support during 2018. For reading my blog, the likes, the comments and shares on social media.

2019 is going to be an eventful year with GCSE’s, my debut book being released and leaving school to start college.

Hopefully we can make 2019 a safer year for wildlife!

Wishing everybody a Happy New Year

Stay Wild
