An impassioned call for better nature protection

The Welsh nature observer and television presenter Iolo Tudur Williams is best known for his BBC and S4C nature shows in the UK. But its seems that he is also a great public speaker and passionate about the world around us.

I wanted to share with you this video that a colleague Mick Green forwarded to me. Its Iolo calling for a new movement and renewed energy to protect our ever diminishing wildlife and natural habitats.

His speech takes me back to my childhood in Wales when we did not have laptops or video games and our enjoyment came from running in woods and fields, chasing grasshoppers and discovering slow worms and grass snakes. Unfortunately its a time that is quickly diminshing and Iolo challenges moves to look at our environment as simply another resource for us to ‘use and abuse.’

The first few seconds  are in Welsh, but Iolo quickly moves to English, so dont worry 🙂 . Its worth listening to. I hope you enjoy it.
