I'm not going to give you a load of stats in this post about how many fish die from plastic pollution, or how many tonnes the U.K. ships out every year, or how much is dumped into oceans every day. You've probably already seen them all (and if not, a quick Google search will help). … Continue reading Don’t be a tosser! In fact, let’s just stop buying waste altogether.
'I'm not the bad guy, I'm just in the wrong place at the wrong time, cleaning up someone else's mess.' We forget that we are animals. We hate the idea of other animals moving country and making home in a new one, but humans did the very same thing. Yes, we have detrimental effects almost … Continue reading I’m not the Bad Guy – Invasive Species
Hi guys, I hope we're all having a lovely week! This week's post was going to be a factually heavy post on pets, but being completely honest, I've temporarily lost my writing motivation. We all have personal lives and I'm finding focus a bit on the tricky side right now, so I'm going to write … Continue reading Forever changing, forever the same.
This post is going to contain a bit of personal information and go on a bit of a personal rant but I promise it serves a good reason. It's been sparked by a letter that my parents have received from our local planning department in regards to an 'untidy property.' To me, this letter and … Continue reading Where the Wild Things Were Wiped Out by Opinion
So after seeing a zero-waste page share the news that Botswana want to lift their trophy hunting ban, put in place in 2014, and the resulting comments, I have something to say about this. I've seen it on multiple other wildlife related pages, but can't see how a zero-waste movement in the U.K. has much … Continue reading ‘When you know better, you do better’ – Botswana.
'It's a form of escapism that doesn't involve us putting substances into our body. '
Hey guys! So I've decided from now on that this blog will be focused around wildlife and conservation. Some of it will include experiences and struggles I've come across while chasing my dreams, but hopefully in a productive way that can help others trying to get their foot in the door, particularly other people from … Continue reading A New Direction
So, onto the title of this post. I've more-or-less gone vegetarian! Yay! This is an ethical thing for me - I've done two years of animal science and welfare and am now doing Wildlife and Conservation. I'm not writing this blog to persuade others to be veggie, I'm writing it because for years, people have … Continue reading Vegetarian, waste-free movements
Hello! Finally, here is the promised post on the Lake District. So here's a little run down of what I did. Me and my partner went there this year for a week. It was my first time going, and we decided to camp. We stayed 3 nights at one campsite (Kestral Lodge), 2 nights at … Continue reading Land of Lakes
Hello! So I've yet to do the lake district post - I am, in fact, in Wales right now, on a lovely relaxing holiday. I'd rather do one big post on the lake district, so let me tell you about Wales quickly. We really haven't done a lot. We visited Dolgoch falls and we've driven … Continue reading Every little thing is gonna be alright!
