And why do we need to care now more than ever?
Where do the swallows go in winter? And, more importantly, why do they come back?
Why are all these spiders in my house anyway?
And what did happen to the hole in the ozone layer?
Are climate change and global warming the same thing?
And are genetic engineering and windfarms really the way forward?
Be prepared to learn, laugh and be surprised by Our Wild World ….
