It is becoming a bit of a tradition for A Focus On Nature to run a series of Advent Calendar guest blogs throughout December. The year's theme for the guest blogs is "the gift of giving" looking at all the ways in which nature gives to us.
I was delighted to take part again and flipped my guest blog to talk about the gift of giving in terms of what we can and should give back to nature. Here is a short extract from it:
"Unfortunately nature can’t tell us what to do, but it certainly can tell us that it is in trouble and it is shouting this message loud and clear. Nature’s tears are building into the worst floods and storms ever seen, Nature’s silence can be heard, yes heard, in the barren waste lands we are leaving behind, Nature’s pain can be heard in the species slaughtered in the name of sport."
There have been some great posts so far and I am looking forward to seeing the ones still to come, but just out of interest, I would really like to hear, what are the gifts that nature has given to you?
