Bringing nature to you
As we reach the end of a very difficult year, there are many people who have been impacted by the terrible Covid-19 pandemic. It has made it extremely difficult to get out into nature, or even out of our homes at all. This at a time of increased stress and concern about our health and livelihoods.
Restoring this lost connection with nature, even virtually, is scientifically proven to have a strong
healing effect and to reduce stress and anxiety levels. An immersive nature experience has a hugely beneficial effect on our well-being.
Emily Wallington, Co-Founder and Executive Producer explains what WildEarth is trying to achieve editorially: "WildEarth is great if you are feeling stress or anxiety. Our mission is to allow you to escape, to slow down and give you the opportunity to look at the bigger picture. It’s not meant to be a high paced television show but rather an experience in nature".
