Bear Necessities (Sorry, I couldn’t help it!)

Ok for those that know me they know I love a Disney reference so I apologise for the title!

But this post is going to be short and sweet because the video says it all!

There is nothing more awesome than seeing these amazing creatures where they belong in their natural habitat! I have spent the last 24 hours walking in their world, learning about what is being done (or not done in some cases) to protect their world and let’s be truthful, our world and our children’s world too!

This may be happening in ‘another country’ but these beautiful creatures once roamed our shores and guess what, they no longer do!

But with huge thanks to Charlie Ottley and the Wild Carpathia team I got to see 3 of these amazing creatures – there just aren’t enough words to describe the feeling so just watch….

I’m Going on a Bear Hunt!

Can you imagine how many times I have read this fantastic children’s book over my 25 years of owning nurseries?

Well, tomorrow I am actually Going on a Bear Hunt!

Ok, so there will be no actual ‘hunting’ but I will be heading off to Romania and a beautiful estate called Zabola where the owner is fighting deforestation to protect the wildlife, to trek up to a bear hide and hopefully catch a glimpse of these magnificent animals in their natural habitat!

The reason? Well I will be joining the documentary filmmakers of the Wild Carpathia series. These amazing wildlife documentaries have highlighted over their past four films how the Carpathian Mountains, their forest and wildlife are being destroyed by human activity! They are in the final weeks of filming the 5th and final film which will show the affects of global warming, deforestation and even plastic use in this once thriving and vibrant place and I get to join them behind the scenes for a few days!

There is still time to change our actions and save our world, but that time is limited!

I will hopefully be sharing details of my journey and of course the presentation of the final film when it premiers!
