61: Dr Rod Gritten – Part of Nature

‘We’re part of nature, we’re all nature and we’ve done a damn good job of trying to get away from that.’

This week Julian talks to ecologist Dr Rod Gritten, the former Head of Ecology of Snowdonia National Park. Since becoming enthralled with spiders as a young boy, Rod has always been invested and connected in the environment and the ecosystem. He has a deep understanding of how it is now, how it could be, and how human health is deeply connected to the health of nature.

Despite the impressively gloomy outlook for our environment, this conversation is positive. Through re connecting with nature we as a species can find our way back to a more interdependent life with our surroundings.
