Art and Life's Ecosystems

Artist, conservationist, naturalist, author… Richard Weatherly is a curious man with many talents, much experience and a spellbinding knack of storytelling!

Richard speaks of his initially accidental artistic career, beginning in London, and our conversation winds around the sensitivity of an artist who works from and in nature and deeply cares about it and for it, the fragility of our ecosystems, mentors, inspiration and even avian personalities!

Importantly, Richard also gives suggestions as to how we can connect ecosystems in order to provide habitat to our precious wildlife – even for those of us living in an urban environment.
