A very personal world tour, exploring how it feels to be among plants and animals in another continent and not to recognise a single thing! From tundra to reefs, rainforests to desserts, she explores the world's ecosystems, and the damage humans are causing. She also talks about her broadcasting career, sharing a love of nature with her many fans.
Glow-in-the-dark owls, eggs boiling in Icelandic hot pools, the gangster tactics of the devil’s coach-horse beetle … Éanna Ní Lamhna has seen them all!
Éanna explores the wonders of our wild world, from a safari in Tanzania to the cloud forests of Costa Rica, from rat-hunting in Canada to whale watching in New Zealand. She draws on her experience as a diver to tell of face-to-face encounters with fascinating fan worms, elusive sea hares and a murderous crab, and rings the alarm bells on the environmental challenges facing us.
Éanna also recounts with cheerful relish the pitfalls and delights of being a broadcaster and a scientist. Sure why would anyone want to be anything else?
