Monica Bond - World Giraffe Day

Today is World Giraffe Day and I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate it than chatting to giraffe expert and children’s author Monica Bond. Monica is a wildlife biologist at the Wild Nature Institute, an NGO that creates environmental education tools for children and adults in Tanzania and the US, as well as other English speaking countries. Africa is a place that holds a real fascination for me so I absolutely loved chatting to Monica about her work out there and what she believes needs to be done to save Africa’s unique and amazing wildlife. If you fancy escaping to Africa, quite literally, for a little while, have a listen. We talk about . . . The important work that she is doing in Africa.The differences and similarities between children in Africa and the US in terms of their connection to nature.Monica’s beautiful children’s books and her self-publishing journey to get them out into the world.The effect that educating children about the issues facing our natural wor...

Cup of Tea Chat #3

It's been a while since I’ve had my good friend and fellow podcaster Tash (from My Home Planet) on the show, so I thought I’d bring her on to discuss a very old book that is new to me and a film that I absolutely love, that is now 10 years old, which I can’t quite believe! Both are still completely relevant. We normally meet in person for these chats but this time we had to have a virtual cup of tea together instead.We end up chatting about Generation Z and their demands for businesses to be more transparent and sustainable and how ultimately that should give us all hope that we can halt this destructive path that we're on.

Ondine Sherman - The Power of Education To Ensure a Better Future For The Voiceless.

You may have noticed that there has been a quite a gap between the last episode of Wilderkids and this one. The art/book side of my life has taken over everything lately - in the final push to get my next children’s book finished and in preparing for a tiger fundraising art exhibition. However, everything is now back on track and I can once again give the podcast, both the interviewees and the listeners, the attention it deserves. Today’s guest is Ondine Sherman, co-founder of the not-for-profit Voiceless and author of the young adult fiction book Sky. We actually did this interview back in April and the lovely Ondine has been incredibly patient with me not having had a chance to edit (which always takes a surprisingly long time) and publish our chat until now, so thank you Ondine!!!Voiceless envisions a world in which animals are treated with respect and compassion and is doing amazing work in drawing attention to the plight facing animals in factory farming and in the protection...

On this week’s show we're joined by Roberto D’Andrea, part of a touring performance troupe called the Connies, born of the rich 112 year Melbourne Tram Conducting tradition, that bring environmental education to children at festivals and schools in Australia and in India.With India having such a special place in my heart after spending so long travelling there, I particularly loved hearing about Roberto’s adventures in Kolkata.During our conversation we talk about.......The loss of a beautiful tradition and with it the loss of a bit of soul.The importance of taking children on the journey that a piece of rubbish will make from when it’s dropped on their street until it reaches the sea.Working with environmental NGO’s to get their messages out there.What Melbourne and Kolkata have in common.The environmental problems facing India and what the Connies are doing to help.And the importance of free range childhood.Roberto knows so much about wildlife and is just the loveliest guy.

Lewyn Maefala - Black Mamba Anti-Poaching Unit

5 years ago the first all female anti-poaching unit was created to combat wildlife crime, particularly rhino poaching, in the greater Kruger National Park in north eastern South Africa. They go by the name of the Black Mambas.The idea behind the Black Mambas is inspirational but the women themselves - from local communities, which are frequently poor and disadvantaged - are my absolute heroines. These women through peaceful means, have caused poaching rates to fall to by 76% and bushmeat by 78%.As many of you will know, poaching of African wildlife particularly elephants and rhinos was the motivation behind my first children’s book and so these ladies have a special place in my heart!SO I’m delighted that today we’re joined by one of these amazing women - Lewyn Maefala - who heads up their community environmental education programme ‘Bush Babies’. Her enthusiasm is infectious and we had such a laugh over some of the stories of life as a Black Mamba but there are some harrowing ...

Sarah Pilkington - Environmental Education in Rural Australian Schools

Welcome to the first Wildkerkids podcast episode of 2018!On this week’s show I have Sarah Pilkington, a school teacher from rural (& I mean rural) Australia. In our conversation, amongst other things, you’ll hear about....... What life is like in a rural school that serves a farming community. What environmental programmes are part of the curriculum in Australian schools. How in an area where water scarcity is a huge problem, school children are playing a vital research role for the government. How getting children practically involved in environmental sustainability is far more successful than just teaching them the topic. How important it is to introduce sustainability through a lens that children can understand and relate to.I hope you enjoy today’s chat. For me it was great to hear about life in an Australian rural school as compared to life in city schools in Australia which is what I’m familiar with. It left me feeling the need to do a road trip to undertake some school vi...
