“In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks” – John Muir

This is a book about Britain’s wildlife, and how and where to find it. The aim is to show that you don’t have to travel to the nether reaches of the Arctic or the deepest corners of the Amazon rainforest to experience weird and wonderful creatures. They are right here, on our doorstep. You just need to know where to look!

In a world where the natural world is slowly being replaced by technology and material things, every single one of us could do with appreciating the flora and fauna that exist on our tiny island. And that starts with spending time in the outdoors; exploring, searching and learning. Teaching ourselves that there is life beyond our laptop screens, and re-discovering our hidden nature.

And this nature needs our help. Threatened by climate change, pollution and urban developments, we are losing our amazing wildlife at an alarming rate. But how are we meant to know what to save, if we don’t know what we stand to lose? How can we get passionate about conservation, if we don’t appreciate the wildlife we have at home?

This is a guide to finding and appreciating the UK’s wildlife. Written by a young conservationist who refuses to grow up, it details her small adventures travelling the UK in search of wildlife encounters on a shoestring budget. Included are tips and tricks of the trade; advice on wildlife spotting, the best places to find it, and, where possible, how to encourage and conserve our native species. From ancient forests and coastal wilderness, to bustling city streets and your own back garden, nature is everywhere – if you just know where to look. Featuring unique illustrations and photography, Hidden Nature will inspire you to get out there and discover Britain’s wilderness for yourself.

About Isla Hodgson

Isla Hodgson is a Zoologist, wildlife journalist and freelance researcher for natural history film. She is currently based in Scotland, studying for a PhD in conservation conflict (essentially a big excuse for some adventuring).

She has a strong passion for conservation, and her popular blog Where The Wild Things Live was born from a desire to spark that enthusiasm in others, starting with the wildlife we have at home.

She is never happier than when trudging around in the outdoors, preferably with a dog – although she is still working on that…
