Back To Nature: How to Love Life – and Save it

Hay Festival 2021, 

The past year has shown us that we need nature more than ever. And although it has never been more under pressure, there are reasons to be hopeful.

Through personal stories, conservation breakthroughs and scientific discoveries, this bookcaptures the essence of how we feel about the wildlife outside our windows. From the resurgence of storks in Britain to lesser horseshoe bats returning to the Isle of Man, to what we can do to encourage wildlife into our own spaces, whether that’s a woodland, a garden, a balcony or our streets, it explores the wonder and solace of nature, and how we can connect with it.

Chris Packham is the leading host of BBC2’s Springwatch, Autumnwatchand Winterwatch.Megan McCubbin is a zoologist, conservationist, photographer, and Chris Packham's stepdaughter. Andy Fryers is Hay Festival Sustainability Director.
