Getting close to wildlife

Now, more than ever, we all must play our part to help protect the environment. We have so much access to information, it can be overwhelming and knowing where to turn to find out the facts we need to know can sometimes be difficult. However, there are people doing so much good and acting as an inspiration to many others, below names just a few.

Paul Goldstein

Paul Goldstein is an avid conservation campaigner and travel expert. He is an award-winning wildlife photographer, presenter and guide. During his career, he has fought for the protection of Bengal tigers. He has completed marathons and climbed mountains in a signature tiger suit. Pre-pandemic he travelled frequently for both pleasure and work. He is looking forward to getting back out into the world discovering new places. Perhaps after this year, he’d prefer a walking holiday rather than running another marathon.

Sir David Attenborough

You can’t write a list like this and not include Sir David Attenborough. He is a national treasure and has helped shape the minds of millions of people across the country. His career spans nearly 70 years and his documentaries have shown the world what a beautiful place we live in, and in recent years have urged people to protect it. He has spoken to former President Barack Obama, proven to be one of the most popular people at Glastonbury’s Pyramid stage, and has been awarded two knighthoods. He was a little boy who grew up being fascinated with nature, and he continues to show his love for the planet. At 94, he is still in high demand.

Dame Jane Goodall

Jane Goodall is a world-famous primatologist. Ever since childhood she had a strong love, and obsession, with animals. Her life’s work has been spent researching chimpanzees and forest conservation. She founded the Jane Goodall Institute charity in 1988. She is 86-years-old and still continues to raise awareness of environmental issues. She promotes a message of hope: every individual has a role to play. Every individual makes a difference.

Greta Thunberg

The next generation is already beginning to have their voices heard. Greta Thunberg, a Swedish teenager, has inspired an international movement to fight climate change. In August 2018 she protested outside of Swedish parliament building, holding a sign that read School Strike for Climate Change. Fast forward a few months and thousands of students around the world were joining her. She has gone on to speak at the UN and won Time Person of the Year. She juggles her climate change work, with regular school work.

Even though the world can seem like such a disastrous place, there are so many people out there who are doing their best to protect it for generations to come. Who inspires you to do your part for the environment?
