It is better to have loved and lost…

Kids love nature. Grown ups do to.

The thing with wildlife is that you never know when you are going to get that close encounter. When it happens it is usually memorable; very memorable.

Last month we spent two weeks in North Norfolk. The highlight of my youngest son’s holiday? Half an hour spent with a grasshopper. For those 30 minutes it crawled over his hands, arms and t-shirt. A bond was made; a strong one.

When the grasshopper finally took his leave the loss was strongly felt, but that close encounter with ‘Freddie’ will live long in his memory; longer than the expensive trip to a local theme park!

Our aim has always been to recreate that same ‘animal’ magic with our own interpretation projects.
