What to do in lockdown!

This was a post on the Natural History Museum’s Instagram, showing that even trees are socially distancing! Apparently, scientists don’t fully understand this phenomenon, but it looks beautiful and sounds interesting.

If, like me, you’re finding lockdown confining and difficult, then there’s multiple creative outlets that many people have been trying. There are plenty of online activities for people to get involved with, from exercise to university courses and this includes wildlife conservation courses. This includes Leo Volunteer From Home, where they are offering a free trial on how to assess camera trap data in order to conduct wildlife monitoring in Africa. They will provide you with camera trap images (hello beautiful animals) and even a certificate of attendance. Can’t think of a better way to spend lockdown productively and even enhance that CV! Check out the link below for more details on how to get involved and contribute to conservation from the comfort and safety of your own home.

Alternatively, being creative, by drawing, painting or getting crafty are all things I love to do as they’re fun but also use your brain (and in a very different way to scientific way I’m used to) and have really saved me during lockdown. This can be an especially difficult time for families with small children as well. So, in the light of this, I thought I’d share the little crafty tips and ideas that WWF have kindly created for us (all of us, not just the kids!). This also includes lovely things like how to create a home for bees, or earth hour lanterns. As a lover of animals and wishing to promote the love of wildlife in general, I could think of no better creative outlet! If you manage to make any of them, please share them with me as I’d love to see them all. Please enjoy some very blurry pictures of my own animal creations!
