    From 14th – 23rd July I am carrying out an in depth audit of the UK’s wildlife. I will be meeting the people with their fingers on the pulse of our wildlife the length and breadth of the UK, those unsung heroes, the great British naturalists who know their stuff and are making a difference. I will have a complete first-hand experience of the natural health of the UK. I’m excited and terrified at the same time. I love learning and seeing new places and species but I fear that I will also bear witness to a landscape in huge trouble. I want to spread an awareness of the successes and failures and to raise some money to help combat the latter. This is not a ‘last chance see’ this is a big chance to make a difference before it’s too late.
