Remember the Wild

Here is a site worth checking out.

Remember the Wild is an online community reconnecting Australians and their local environments with storytelling, science, projects and initiatives.

The site also includes educational stories and practical posts on topics such as attracting birds to your garden, creating a bee sanctuary in 4 easy steps, building a forest compost in your garden.

“In our modern lives we are increasingly removed from nature. We spend more time indoors than ever before, and fewer of us live in rural or ‘country’ areas. Most of us do not farm our own food or even garden around our homes, and the urban areas in which we tend to live are increasingly devoid of biodiversity.
Some scientists have dubbed this decline in our exposure to nature as the ‘extinction of experience’ and have pointed out its unfortunate and pervasive repercussions. You see, as we lose touch with the natural world, we inevitably lose our emotional connections to it. As a consequence we stop caring for and preserving our local environment, and in turn we lose our natural places and the species that call them home.
Remember The Wild seeks to bring our experiences of the natural world back from the brink of extinction. We will reconnect our communities with nature, and in doing so, we will help people remember why the wild matters.”
