I get frustrated when I hear organisations, the media and individuals blaming technology for our apparent disconnection from nature and the outdoors.

To those of you who say ‘Ditch the screen and go green’ I say you are holding on too tight to the memory of yesteryear and the way we used to experience and learn about the natural world.
I believe that the magical world of our youth still exists but the way in which we experience and learn about it needs to evolve. Rather than ditching technology to help us get closer to wildlife I say embrace it!
