To kick-start 30 Days Wild we decided it was best to begin close to home so we paid a visit to the nearby Forest Recreation Ground.
The Forest may not seem a haven of wildlife to begin with, but as we found out it very much was!
First off, we found a creepy crawly insect. They may be small, but they’re still important for wildlife – they’re sources of food for birds and all sorts of other animals. Even the tiniest insects can be extraordinarily beautiful when examined close-up and often have fascinating lifecycles.
Then we found some wild mushrooms – we didn’t eat them (just in case they were poisonous) but again it proves that wildlife can exist and thrive, not just in the countryside but in the city too.
Finally, after all that foraging, our intrepid group of clients decided to do some meditation. Sometimes in our everyday life it’s easy to miss how amazing wildlife can be, especially when you’re in an urban environment, but it’s clear there’s a lot more than meets the eye!
