Whilst working for Froglife, I met the talented and lovely Jules Howard. We worked together for a number of years before Jules left to set up his own business and start a blossoming career as an environmental educator, writer and blogger.
The [nature’s footnote] blog is where Jules shares opinions, reviews nature books and occasionally vents his spleen about our efforts to conserve the natural world. I started illustrating the blog in 2013, creating a new banner and images to go with the posts.
At the beginning of 2014, Jules and I started the [nature’s footnote] podcast, a semi-regular green room for informal chat about nature, zoology, conservation and wildlife. Every episode, we review the latest good and bad news from the sector – Jules covers the doom and gloom and I try to lighten it up with some much harder to find happy news. We also have an Outdoor Bit where we go in search of encounters with local wildlife and do reviews of books, documentaries and other relevant stuff.
