Messages From The Wild

The Earthworm

“I absolutely love this one! Cheered up my train journey to work no end.” (R. Forbes, UK)

Hundreds of thousands of animals, all around us, are tirelessly going about their business every day, unknowingly keeping us alive. It’s time to get to know them, to listen to their message, to respect and protect them and do everything we can do keep them alive.

The Hedgehog

“Just enough anthropomorphism to make the science fun.” (The Daily Telegraph review)

Animals have been silent for too long. They’re ready to talk. And they need to be heard far and wide.

Take time to listen to some of these conversations with our wildlife to get a new perspective on their environment, and a new respect for their lesser known world. Pass on their messages, talk about them, be on their side. Subscribe for free to hear new conversations with animals as they arrive into the Wildlife Library

Sponsor a favourite animal you’d like to hear from, to add to the Wildlife Library, giving schools more animals to connect with. Further information

The Buzzard

“Brilliant! Lots of humour, informative and a fun and great way for all ages to connect with our natural history.” (E. Pugh, UK)

“Every species occupies a uniquely distinct niche in nature and when they are lost from ecosystems, their distinct contributions are also lost. This means that extinction of any species, no matter how big or small, high profile or unknown, impoverishes the world.” Dr Ian Donohue, Head of Zoology, Trinity College Dublin
