With the help of Julian Derry and large quantities of coffee WildNature.org was born yesterday. It is to be the watering hole where strange new beasts and familiar old friends can cool their heels whilst making free with thoughts on the natural world – what has amazed you, what connects us to it, and how can we look after it. Right now we’re waiting for the site to be generated at <wildnature.org> but the site (and this blog) can in the meantime be reached at: <mgmsolutions.com>. It will be developed over the course of several months.
This evening, I have just one gripe. Large amounts of development money are being diverted from mainline conservation to climate change. I am amazed at the number of jobs being created. Consultancy companies are advertising for specialists (and what is a climate change specialist, you might well ask). Lets not take our eyes off the ecosystems, habitats and species that are being squeezed by economic demands as well as the climate. We need them.
