An issue that I feel strongly about is getting Minority Ethnic people out into nature whether it's in an inner city park or a rural nature reserve. As I see it, nature and conservation is almost completely white and this needs to change. I have been talking to many nature charities about this and asking that that they engage with minority ethnic people.
I did all they recordings and editing myself and have some of my own recordings that I will add to the post shortly.
