I like to write nature inspired pieces about woodlands, or locations in the world I have visited. I also am documenting my van conversion. If you would like to talk about anything then please get in touch, I’d love to chat. Holly.
Hi, I’m Holly, I’m from Suffolk and have always had a love for the outdoors and the wildlife that inhabits it. I have been filming walks for the last 7 years and now am turning my attentions to other passions I want to develop hence starting this podcast. During this series I will be talking to outdoor advocates, wildlife enthusiasts and forest school specialists about how Nature has impacted their lives and their individual passions. I hope you enjoy.

Trees are the lungs of the earth, they are all interconnected,Continue reading “Why do we need to protect Ancient Woodland?”
This is a presentation about the North Pacific Gyre and ocean pollution.
My petition is for the Government to “Review the route and construction plans for HS2 for environmental reasons.” Current plans for HS2 involve the destruction of woodlands and use of unsustainable building materials.We want all ancient woodland left untouched and modern, environmentally friendly materials to be used, not materials like concrete. This petition is notContinue reading “Petition to save ancient woodlands from HS2”
