Project Wild Thing & Huff Post - A Very Wild Network

A year ago today I stood up in front of a room full of conservationists and told them they had failed. They exist to get people outdoors and connected to nature. But, increasingly, people are not interested. They vote with their feet, and stay indoors. More worryingly, so do their children. I was speaking at last [...]

Project Wild Thing & Huff Post - The 500m Nature Trail

My children are back at school today. It makes me feel guilty. After a summer of walking and frolicking, suddenly I have to decant them into the car and ferry them around. I know I shouldn’t. But it is just too far for them to walk (especially for the 4-year-old). If we try, we end up [...]

Project Wild Thing & Huff Post - Too Poor for Nature

I am still on holiday, in acres of green space in North Wales. So the news today hit particularly hard: the number of children living in poverty in the UK has risen by a million in my generation. A new report by the National Children’s Bureau compares the situation in 1971, when two million children were [...]

Project Wild Thing & Huff Post - The Real Stranger Danger

I have just been looking at my calendar. It is full. Whole days have disappeared under scribbles. With just two months to go until the release of PROJECT WILD THING, my feature-length documentary about children and the outdoors, things are getting hectic. But for now I am determined to forget all that. This week I am [...]

Project Wild Thing & Huff Post - Fat Kids Doped Up on Ritalin

This week I opened the newspaper. Big mistake. Actually, I didn’t even have to open the newspaper. The story screamed at me from the front page of The Times: ‘Obesity will send today’s children to early grave’. In a new report the British Heart Foundation revealed that 80% of children are not eating the recommended five portions [...]

Project Wild Thing blog: All I want for Father’s Day

My poor children. For the last month, they’ve been bombarded with commercials telling them what I want for Father’s Day. They’ve offered me the following ideas – a day on a race track, aftershave, an electric razor, a hot air balloon ride, a remote controlled helicopter, some whisky, because Manly Matters. None of these [...]

Project Wild Thing blog: The state of nature

The recent report ‘State of Nature’ highlights the need to rekindle our own and our children’s love of nature, writes David Bond I’m stuck in an office in the centre of London. It is clear that nature is fighting a losing battle against the concrete expansion. It is a sacrifice of living and working in a [...]

Project Wild Thing Blog: Can we prove that nature is good for us?

Getting people outdoors is an emotional battle, not just a scientific one writes David Bond Advertising is a mighty persuader. Without necessarily being fully conscious of it, we have all been lured into a purchase at some stage in our lives. Adverts convince us that we want something, and the good ones convince us that we [...]

Project Wild Thing Blog: Embracing Fear

Fear is an evolved emotion. It helps us to deal with stress relating to potentially dangerous situations. It makes hearts beat faster, adrenaline flow and bodies sweat. Fear is frightening – obviously. As we get older, we tend to like to experience our fear in small, controlled bursts: job interviews and moving house, for example. [...]

Project Wild Thing Blog: Risk and Fear

My son Albie (4) is obsessed with anything sharp and dangerous. We have a knife drawer in our kitchen, towards which he consistently gravitates if ever he’s left on his own. We keep telling him that if he goes into the drawer again, sanctions will be imposed. You can imagine the sort of thing – [...]

50 Things to do before you’re 11 ¾

One of the most memorable things that emerged making Project Wild Thing, our new documentary, is the importance of letting children be independent and think for themselves. So I am really pleased that, rather than asking adults, the National Trust has turned to children all over the UK to ask what should be in the ‘50 [...]

Project Wild Thing Blog: Is Squeamishness a Barrier to Nature?

I recently convinced my 5-year-old daughter Ivy to kiss a frog. The species in question was Rana temporaria, the common frog, but this particular frog was far from common. The little chap was called Arthur and he was a stunt frog. He was the star of a recent episode of Holby City, and practically had [...]
