I’m Pip, a gay, rollerskating 9-to-5er, who a couple of years ago, decided that I wanted to live as wildly as possible in the little slice of urban Cardiff that I call home.
I began this blog as my diary, to keep track of everything I learnt about and discovered about the nature and wildlife in the city, and share it with those in similar situations to me. I decided to fully throw myself into the green, sometimes feathery, and sometimes slimy, world of our urban wildlife.
Join me (and sometimes my ginger sidekick Nala the spitz) as I get excited for experiencing and learning everything about the wildlife of this city, as well as discovering and sharing ways to protect it against ever growing threats, no matter how small the actions.
Projects and Work
Co-Founder of #WildCardiffHour – a new project to connect the people of Cardiff with the wildlife and nature around them using a weekly event to share and learn. Started as part of an UpRising environmental action campaign
Co-Founder of Tremorfa Park Community Group – a local community group based around my local park, with a focus on monthly litter picking events to protect the environment. We have won local awards for our work within the area.
Wildlife and Nature Talks – I have given talks and local nature walks about the wildlife and nature of Cardiff with local environmental group Green Squirrel.
