Nature Connections Festival visitor, Meghan O’Reilly, met our guest speaker, Chris Packham last year. She kindly wrote to us and let us know how much she enjoyed the day at the festival!
You can read about her experience here – Thanks Meghan!
“I was a bit shy when I met wildlife photographer, Chris Packham, but my Dad said to me that he’s just a normal bloke and I should act normally! Chris was very busy and he spoke to a lot of people. Like Chris Packham, I love nature because I find animals really interesting. I think it’s good to learn about them because they’re just like us.
At the festival, Chris Packham gave a talk about why nature is so great. I already knew some things he said because I like to explore woods around my home. I can’t imagine a world without nature! I think we should look after our wildlife.
Me and family had a great day exploring the festival. I got to eat ice cream and then hold a boa constrictor. I really liked the festival and I’m going to ask my teacher if our class can go this year so I can show my friends.”
