In 2019, I began writing for The Bay Magazine in Swansea having my own pages dedicated to Wildlife in the area. Every month there is a new feature dedicated to a certain wildlife wonder:

  • Wildlife Watch: Winter Garden birds (February 2019)

Thompson & Morgan’s Little Book of Garden Wisdom.

I had the pleasure of being asked to give some advice for gardens on how to encourage more wildlife into their gardens. It was a fun project to work on and pleased to be included alongside so many amazing gardeners too!

TV Filming

I’ve been interviewed on a number of News programmes in both Welsh and English about wildlife. I’ve also been featured in a Welsh tv programme about urban wildlife with Iolo Williams which continues to be shown on S4C on a regular basis.

BBC Radio Wales/Cymru

I’ve had the pleasure of being featured numerous times on both BBC Radio Wales and BBC Radio Cymru.
I’m mainly asked to be interviewed regarding wildfowl, Welsh wildlife, wildlife in general and what people can do to be involved with wildlife. It’s an absolute pleasure to be invited back regularly to help engage people with wildlife and there’s always hope to inspire others too.

‘Edu-Tuber’ Videos

My Youtube channel is filled full of fun-yet-factual videos thus making it an ‘edu-tube’ channel. In this day and age, people, especially children spend more time on their phones online than they do watching TV, this is why it’s great to engage with people on all platforms.

Through my Youtube channel, I am able to explore the wonders of our world and bring the wildlife straight to your device.

The aim is to bring people closer to wildlife, highlight conservation stories from around the UK and abroad and to give a platform to interesting wildlife which may not be featured all too much. It’s also a way to enthuse and educate a number of audiences on the great locations you can visit to see creatures in the wild.
