Tree O'Clock

I have heard the "Tree O'Clock" world record attempt mentioned on Autumnwatch a few times, and at a local wildlife meeting I went to recently. The aim is to "plant your very own tree as part of a Guinness World Record attempt" It's happening all over the UK on the 5th of December from 11am-12noon. 1 million trees need to be planted in order to beat the record. To find out where you could do this check out the website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/breathingplaces/treeoclock/
If you plant a tree please let me know, it would be great to hear your experience from it. I will be taking part and planting a tree with WildDerby at Allestree Park.

Seals Donna Nook

I visited Donna Nook yesterday to see the seal colony. Seals are one of my favourite animals. There were seals giving birth all the time but unfortunately the nearest I got to this was watching one having contractions.

WWF "Vote Earth!" campaign

Due to recently starting University I have been very busy, so I haven't had a lot of time to get outdoors and therefore update my blog.
In one of my lectures recently I came across a campaign on the WWF website called "Vote Earth!" For my information about this please follow the link, and then sign the petition if you agree with it: http://www.wwf.org.uk/what_we_do/campaigning/vote_earth___for_a_global_climate_deal/
