About this book

A naturalist's equivalent to the Dangerous Book for Boys, this title will include tips on everything from beachcombing, snorkelling and building your own hedgehog hotel to tree-climbing, natural foods and how to make traps for insects and mammals.

This hands-on guide to enjoying nature is filled with practical advice on how to get involved with wildlife. It has a British/north European focus and will give ideas on wildlife-watching and other activities in different habitats, including coast, mountains, heathland, garden, wetland, woodland and farmland alongside the practical activities relating to bushcraft and survival, and suggestions of how to get close to wildlife, for example through mountain-biking. It will carry an important conservation message. It will also touch upon these activities in a worldwide context.
