11:04:13 - Why
Emotion Matters in Conservation Science
For the second time in a row
I would like to bring to your attention another
lecture. This time it is being held by some
friends of mine at The Earthwatch Institute, an
organisation I was proud to work for as a
conservation photographer many years ago.
I have been spreading the
essence of this lecture for many years now and I
once again find it totally synchronous that my old
friends are running a lecture on a topic that is
close to my heart.
(Here's a newspaper article
I wrote on this topic just last year, with
particular reference to wild boar and forests -
I do hope you can support
this event. One of my lasting and
earliest professional memories was to be the
appointed photographer for a Royal Geographical
Society lecture, so if you go and you are a
photographer, take a look at how daunting that would
be - and in the days before digital!

Why our emotional connections with nature
and place matter to human psychological well-being
and conservation science.
"In the face of global environmental degradation
and change, much attention focuses on how
impoverished environments impact humans directly.
Every day we’re reminded of the loss of useful
species, increased vulnerability to disaster,
pollution, food insecurity, drought, pollution or
other lost ecosystem services.
However, the importance of healthy land and
seascapes in providing essential sustenance for our
human minds and souls is less well understood.
There is increasing evidence that emotional
connections to nature and place not only enhance
positive feelings and boost well-being, but also
have real influence on how people think and behave
towards nature. Understanding how we value nature,
and finding ways to deepen our connection with it,
will be of benefit to both individual people and to
our shared environment.
Earthwatch is pleased to present two speakers,
who will draw on their experiences of working in
ocean environments and mountainous regions
respectively, to explore how our emotional
connections to nature and place nourish our
psychological well-being, and have important
implications for current conservation efforts.
Speaking from his personal experience as a marine
biologist, sea turtle expert and conservationist,
Dr. Wallace "J." Nichols, PhD. will discuss the need
for us to embrace an emotional connection with the
oceans in order to conserve them, the importance of
oceans for our mental health and well-being, and
about the exciting and emerging field of
neuroconservation. He will draw on his sea turtle
research and conservation work on Baja, Mexico,
where he is working alongside coastal communities to
explore the cultural values of sea turtles, and
engage communities in research and conservation
Dr. Anastasia Steffen will explore the strong
emotional connection of mountainous environments
like New Mexico’s Valles Caldera to the human
psyche, and the values people hold in nature linked
to past human use and culture. She will explore how
the imprint of our past hunter-gatherer existence in
this region informs our emotional attachment and
‘sense of place’, and how archaeology provides a
tool for exploring not only our deep past but our
current use, valuation and management of these
By understanding as individuals
what we value, we can begin to explore conservation
and management through a cultural lens, so that the
multiple and diverse values of a place are
represented and conserved".

As an ex-professional earth
scientist, I'm worried at a very new risk to the
health of our planet and local environment. It
is, as usual, being
perpetrated only for profit by big Corporations in collusion with
national governments. Get ready for the
usual guff about energy resources and global
warming. This could be an
environmental disaster awaiting to happen to the UK
as well as the USA.
But rather write my own
words, I have taken the liberty to promote a friend
of mine called Ian R Crane. I have known Ian
for some years and find comfort that his views are
often shared by my own. Here is what he writes in his
"There is a global awakening
to the terrible reality that the world is dancing a
tango with the devil on the precipice of economic
collapse and impending global war, blindly ignorant
of the fracking nightmare of environmental
depredation caused by transnational energy cartels
in their quest for big profits.
This global shift in awareness is wakening the
asleeple to a deeper understanding of
geopolitics and how it interfaces with a fundamental
shift in our World View.
One of the most prominent
speakers stirring this new perception is former
oilfield executive Ian R Crane from the UK, a
leading authority on corporate globalization with 20
years experience in the oil/gas industry as a
Schlumberger executive providing oilfield services
to energy corporations in the UK, Europe, Middle
East and USA.
Whistleblower Ian Crane is now a self-funded
independent researcher who writes and lectures
internationally on deep geopolitics, bringing a
wealth of insight and understanding of hidden
truths about global energy issues to stir
spiritual awakening and encourage
Across the world people feel betrayed and have
lost confidence in political, military,
corporate and religious leaders. Many are
waking up to the realization that political
leaders are not acting for our good, but
revolving doors with transnational cartels feed
vested interests and drive the hidden satanic
agenda of globalist secret societies.
Politicians laugh at death and destruction while
religious leaders shed not a tear as they turn
away from a hidden American holocaust with over
six million dead in the last twelve years of
wars for global dominion.
The corporate media is the glossy lipstick on
the pig, softly dripping venom of disinformation
with a facade of honey words designed to deceive
and remove individual ability to think, reason
or discern. Creativity and spirituality are
replaced by mindless conformity to dogmas that
promote globalist programs and feed the
transformation of free-thinking people into a
controlled, manipulated herd without a moral
compass, starved of empathy and entwined by
Yet the numbed silence of the lambs is ending as
headlights are switching on to the stark reality
we all face. Breaking the trance of deception
through well informed and well researched
analysis, Ian R Crane helps connect the dots as
he draws on his insider experience in the
oil/gas industry to expose the hidden link
between the energy cartel's agenda for
control of global resources and the rise of the
New World Order. "

19:02:13 - A New Era
It was a funny year
for me leading up to the Apocalypse of 21st December
2012. And now it's behind me, I've
given myself some time to reflect on 2012 and did
For me personally,
2012 certainly appeared to be an attack on British
wildlife and the environment close to my home in the
Forest of Dean. Badgers and wild boar,
buzzards and even foxes were being reconsidered for
hunting. Larch and ash trees were being felled
along with the nests of goshawks and other birds
dependent on these trees. Many endangered
species too came under pressure from urban development,
seemingly now unprotected along with the badgers now
that commercial interests are on offer. We too
were under direct threat from diseases, and then there
were also amazing floods, especially as the 21st
December approached. And just days ago, a
meteorite crashed to Earth and another larger one
appeared apocalyptic. But what is increasingly
apparent was the lack of finger-pointing on anything to
do with the managed countryside. It feels as if
mankind can do no wrong in his desire to engineer his
own environment for profit. Who is brave enough to
stand up and say what is so obvious?
Maybe we are all
reluctant to stand up in the face of so much contrary
belief? If we believe the main manipulators of our
everyday information, most of the disasters were
believed to be random acts of evolution befalling the
environment. Although not explicitly mentioned,
the language in the media was supposed to illicit
conditioned responses. We were meant to think of
rogue yet natural "mutations" and "infections"
spuriously pervading and upsetting our ecosystem and our
future health, from tree moulds to flu epidemics.
Never seems to be our fault does it? Another
country's maybe, but never ours?
We are all
conditioned to think in certain moral and nationalistic
ways, and this changes with time and the current
political climate. Questioning, once encouraged at
school, is now thought of as an act of terrorism or at
least "unpatriotic". How can our masters possibly
tell us a lie or be deceptive? It always seems so
plausible what they tell us! And the more they
tell us the same thing and the louder they shout it,
surely the more believable it becomes? But is it
true? When a country opts into this way of
unthinking subservience, all manner of problems arise,
especially when no-one thinks to think.
I saw this in action
at a local badger meeting I attended. A few
hundred people wanted to know why our badgers are in the
firing line due to the Tb risk they allegedly pose to
cows. They came to hear some facts of what could
be done to prevent the slaughter if all concerned, from
farmers to government, would only listen. A dairy
farmer spoke about farm hygiene being almost solely
respnsible for Tb outbreaks. Then a vet spoke
presenting a bigger picture of Tb in animals, badger
culling and the perterbation affect, and the pros and
cons of vaccination. And then a political speech
from the RSPCA's top man accussing the government and
the NFU in back-room deals.
Although each had a
valid point, not one of them even mentioned the solution
that has been proven to work - culling of entire herds
when one infected cow in the herd is discovered.
This would probably amount to a 70% loss of our dairy
herd with many farmers going bust etc. It is
unpopular thinking in this ecomomic climate, but it has
been proven to work across the EU / Western Europe, with
not a single case of bovine Tb (bTb) for 30 years since
this stance was adopted. Well that was until a few
recent cases were discovered in 2011 onwards.
So I spoke up and
suggested such an action to the panel. After all,
it seemed a fair swap from 70% of badgers dying to 70%
of cows! The panel didn't know what to say
and filibustered around it. Only afterwards when
speaking in private to the vet did I get some
confirmation that this type of policy does work.
So why not say so to the crowd? Could it be a fear
of becoming unpopular?
I think so.
The feeling of unpopularity is one of the greatest tools
that a government can use against its people when the
people disagree with the carefully constructed
"consensus reality". The control of us through the
feelings of unpopularity and also the reverse, by
believing in your perceived popularity, is very
effective. And politics is about popularity
after all, especially at local level. In fact a
local councillor has made repeatedly angry and
belittling remarks to me ever since I spoke up at this
meeting, presumably to increase his own popularity in my
So yes, people can get
aggressive and threatening when their popularity is
challenged or they feel they can gain some at your
expense. It's getting harder to tell the
truth these days for fear of reprisals from those with
other agendas. I
see this happening all the time amongst land managers or
conservationists who both believe they are doing the
unselfish thing. But when they come into conflict
with one side challenging the other, as I see regularly
Friends of the Boar and The Forestry Commission, the
fallout can be confusing. Similarly, I (as a
co-founder of Frends of the Boar) get threats from those
who are, or wish to curry favour with, the boar
hunters or the Forestry Commission. Could this
all be because action from both sides is never truly unselfish, but to some degree
motivated by selfish popularity ratings?
But do people's
"outspoken" beliefs ever make a difference and why do most people
feel the need to be popular?
Are beliefs ever
translated into real world action? Yes, maybe a
few wrote to their MP hoping he may get a government to
change it's mind on shooting badgers? Yet sadly,
writing letters to MPs is now another form of control.
Letter writers feel good about themselves, they think
they have changed something and will often brag to other
they have done so. Their idea of self-worth has
increased. But to stay in this self-delusional
state requires they don't burst the bubble and are
prevented from speaking again lest they make a gaff or
are ridiculed. Controlled again. Only the
The thing is,
opinions are worthless without evidence, and here we
have a story of badgers about be shot because nobody
wants to see the clear evidence that the problem would
be solved by killing infected and potentially infected
cows - after all, didn't we support this policy in the
BSE crisis!!!! And so the UK Government are to
kill the badgers from today despite the millions of
people chatting away in hyperspace saying no.
So despite all the
efforts to overload the chat rooms of hyperspace, to
spread information and rally support, not just with
badgers but with almost anything these days, nothing
ever changes. Why? Because too many people
prefer to live within a cleverly constructed artifice of
reality that denounces anyone with "unpopular" claims.
Being popular is a form of control.
The advancement of
popular opinion and even "facts" (Wikipedia for example
is a control), especially when it involves big
players, is part of the tactic called controlled
opposition. Create a strawman that in time will
burn down leaving the supporters with nowhere to turn.
In the case of badgers this is vaccination - ultimately
doomed (see my previous blog on the ritual sacrifice of
badgers) but giving people false hope in the meantime.
Too many people now
make it a life's ambition to feel important and to raise
their self-esteem. They find solace in Facebook
where they can hide their insecurities in the real
world, promoting idealised personas in the virtual.
recent research is proving this (please click the
link) and worries about our future with regards to
social interactions and effective achievement. And
if we can't communicate effectively we are essentially
controlled by the few that can - the politician, the
developer, the banker, the press.
I "believe" we have
passed a crossroads with our future now determined.
A majority of people are content to read about real
world events but don't know what to do to affect it.
They feel informed yet disempowered, yet at the same
time the machinery of social engineering tells them they
are special and could be superstars and millionaires
tomorrow. Be on X-Factor, be a footballer or a
fashion model. They will criticise and demean
those who seem to be making achievements, because their
own feelings of discontent convinces them they are being
devalued in a popularity contest.
A minority of people
felt that 21st December 2012 was a magic moment to start
again personally, being stronger and seeing the world
and others in a new light.
This is a major
reason I didn't add to this blog for much of the
tumultuous 2012. Does a blog or opinion do any
good in real terms, or is it simply a way for authors
(like me) to feel self-esteemed and worthy? Is a
blog more about the author's needs than the subject's
needs, especially when the subject is a wildlife
campaign or a human suffering? It would seem so
Now we are past the
tipping point and post-2012, I still believe that our
society has changed as previously predicted in this
blog. It was an awakening event felt by only the
few, but mocked by the many. For those who didn't
feel it, they will continue to compare themselves
against others, forever striving to be someone they
aren't, forever shopping in the mall of uncontentedness,
belittling others or being aggressive. They remain
For those who felt
it, and I include myself naturally, I personally believe
a great change may have been achieved within me and
others who I hope read this too. A veil has
finally fallen (literally an apocalypse). I
find no need to brag or to jump aboard every campaign
trail on 38 Degrees, or Facebook, or make more virtual
friends. This is because for people like
myself, I can only hope that the self-knowledge combined
with real-knowledge is the purest and most effective
form of change there can be in both the external and
17:05:12 - In the
Bluebell season is
upon us once again, after some delay due to poor weather
and cool temperatures in April. It is a time of
year I look forward to, and this year has been made
extra special due to a blossoming wild boar population
here in the Forest of Dean.
Wild Boar piglet 156
After being almost
eradicated last year, the surviving handful of
potentially breeding sows (approximately 15-20) have all
managed to give birth to 6 piglets (plus or minus one)
each. No killing is being done by the
Forestry Commission after they agreed to revise with the
Forest of Dean Council a new acceptable population of
boar that the local people would tolerate.
Friends fo the Boar and myself have been working hard
for this and this year sees some fruits of our labours.
We have in effect a closed-season until September 2012.
After much work
promoting the gentle side of the boar and the ecological
arguments for their existence, the local people are
eventually understanding and seeing for themselves the
boar (now the population has increased) and becoming
much less afraid. There are still sectors of the
human community that will never like a pig in their
backyard for reasons of their own, but basically is
split between the farming community worried about crop
damage, and narrow-minded individuals who see roadside
diggings as a mess that must be stopped (they make me
Wild Boar piglet 154
One predicament we
are getting now that wild boar are increasing and also
unfortunately becoming too trusting of people, is an
increasing number of poachers and so-called sport
hunters. Amazingly, the Forestry Commission are
allowing some groups to let dogs track down carcasses
laid by their owners for sport. This has included
deer heads staked down in the forest! Yes, the
Forest is now in danger of being ruined by individuals
who see wildlife as something to abuse.
This has been
highlighted recently (12th May) by a wild boar sow being
attacked at night by someone carrying a knife.
They expertly removed a leg from the boar, covered the
carcass over with sticks, and left it. The sow had
nine dependent month old piglets! The fact she had
nine piglets indicates that some piglets had already
suffered a trauma of loosing their mother. Now
they have lost their surrogate mother too (wild boar
cross-suckle piglets from other sows).
Wild Boar piglet 158b
So it seems that
with good news is always bad, and the colour of the
bluebells is now a reminder for me to remember those
orphaned piglets everywhere and the uncertain future of
all the wild boar here. But just look at them,
aren't they wonderful? They simply fit in with the
look of the forest and now the bluebells.
I now write about
the ongoing status of the boar in the Friends of the
Boar blog (www.friendsoftheboar.blogspot.com)
along with other enthusiasts who want to see the
acceptance and conservation of wild boar a priority in
the UK. You may also like to look at my
Wild Boar gallery for much more detail on the story.
Please take a look
and in the meantime enjoy the bluebells..and of course
the wild boar.

It has been 11 years
since I began this website and it is time for a Spring
In the early days
images had to be small because file space and bandwiths
were at a premium. But over time this has improved
and most photographers now post very large images on
their sites. I have been refreshing some of my
images to appear larger and better quality, so hopefully
you will enjoy them even more?
This comes with
pitfalls, however, namely image theft. For this
reason I've put a copyright notice across the larger
images. I know it spoils the image, but there are
too many bloggers and image thieves who believe
that because an image is on Google it is free to take.
This is not the case. Photography is my only
source of income. Like many other photographers, I
spend money to get the images, and rely on sales to
allow me to feed my child and myself.
If a photographer
finds their image used on a blog or another website
without written permission, he has every right to demand
a fee (between 3 and 10 times the usual fee) and even
compensation from the infringer. If the image has
a copyright notice across it the infringer cannot claim
ignorance. In fact, ignorance has never been a
defense to claim innocence and get out of a legal claim.
An increasing number of photographers are now making
money from pursuing infringers, and finding infringers
has never been so easy - using Google image searches for
The Spring Equinox
is suffused with esoteric meaning, including shedding of
the old and bringing in the new. It is Mother's
Day, a drinking festival, a celebration of Christ's
triumphant entry into Jerusalem for the festival of
Passover, the beginnings of Easter.
Yes, it is a day of
worshipping the Mother, the Earth, the feminine
principle we find in nature. The feminine Godesses
with powers of life as well as death, with the Equinox
bringing forth the creative force rather than the
destructive. Symbolically, "she" is the snake, a
creature that returns from the dark Earth each Spring to
bask in the warm light and lay her Easter eggs. A
mother that will defend her eggs and herself with
powerful venom if upset. For the snake is the
symbol of healing today, but also the serpent that
granted Eve (and then Adam) with the fruits of the Tree
of Life and knowing good from evil (- or Eve-el, or
becoming like God themselves).
The snake guards and
grants the Tree of Life to those who wish to know.
iconology we see St. Patrick ridding the green Isle of
Ireland of snakes as well as importing the Christ
concept of light upon a dark and heathen pagan people.
The green stands for fertility and abundance, a colour
also associated with previous Gods of the life force,
not to mention the colour of the vine (with wine in its
veins), or the Green Man seen in many churches, a symbol
of the Roman god Bacchus who drank a lot of wine
as well as becoming a judge of dead souls.
Dead souls are an
important symbol in the Jewish Passover, for which
Christ is associated at the start of the Equinox (albeit
a practice based upon a moon that reflects the sun).
Allegedly, the firstborns were sacrificed by the plague
upon the Eyptians, but the Passover celebrates the
children of Israel being "passed-over" or spared,
thereby granting mercy and abundance at the same time.
In honour of God, the Jews demonstrated restraint and
respect by fasting in this joy of abundance and
The one thing all
these have in common is the Sun (a.k.a.Son). At
the equinox (meaning equal night), the Mother Earth
begins receiving renewed light, with darkness defeated
once again. The sun "passes over" it's equinoctial
point to bathe the world in light once again (actually,
the Earth has no tilt and the equators of Male Sun and
Female Earth marry or align together. This new
light gives warmth and vegetative abundance and
fertility. The Goddess Eostre, of the East (where
the sun rises) is closely associated with this
"Easter"equinox, being a Queen of Heaven and wisdom with
stars about her head, that became eventually to be known
as Mother Mary. Could Equine-Ox also allude to the
post-Gospel appearance of a Donkey and Ox in the stable
at Christ's birth?
So it is at this
time of year that we must all revere nature in all its
wonderous forms and energies. For those who
cleanse their body temples will feel re-energised,
healthy and full of wisdom. You must fill yourself
with a feeling of justice and righteousness, rid your
physical temple of toxins (both body and house in a
Spring Clean), and eventually you may experience the
divinity of the whole of creation.
May the God you seek
08:03:12 - The
Badger Sacrifice Ritual and What You Need To Know
Government have chosen my part of the UK to undertake
what can only be a ritual sacrifice of badgers (Meles
It has been
instigated after classic problem-reaction-solution
methods aimed at both the farming community and the
public. Anyone who doesn't understand how this
method works should look it up, but be confident in the
knowledge that the worldwide press are used as pawns in
this mass manipulation of beliefs and promotion of a
false reality that is for the benefit of profit and
economic competition. The governmental lobby and
spin-doctors behind this corruption is both the Dept. of
Farming and Ritual Affairs (Defra), and the European
Badgers are to be
slaughtered by farmers (in the first instance) in an
attempt to cleanse the domestic cattle of bovine
tuberculosis (bTB). This is despite a previous
study (by the Independent Scientific Study Group on
Cattle TB, or ISG, set-up by a 1968 Government) proving
that killing of badgers makes the spread and incidence
of bTB much worse. In fact, the UK's last
scientific advisor (David KIng) was almost certainly
replaced after his research concluded the same.
The unelected and Nazi-inspired European Union want to
make you react by the ritual blood sacrifice of innocent
I for one, do not give my consent to this Babylonian
Brotherhood agenda of control and domination of hearts,
minds and property.
Tuberculosis is an
ancient disease. Archaeological evidence indicates
people in the Neolithic lived with it, and cattle during
the last Ice Age also acquired it. Whether both
species suffered with the same strain of TB or two
different ones is still open to debate. But old
diseases are stable (do not mutate much) and for which
we and cattle will have acquired immunity against over
this huge amount of time. [I have probably
had Tb when at school, but the doctors claimed I had
fungal pneumonia instead - a very similar illness.
Changing a diagnosis is a way of making vaccines look
like they work!]
What seems extremely
likely here is that our puppet UK government has been
told by it's master to slaughter badgers firstly to see
if it can be done, and secondly to promote a serious
reaction in the UK public. My research can find no
other reason for this ritual, other than to instigate
fear and profit. This is not the first time that
invented disease fears have been used to upset
agricultural stock prices, with the result being that
the Corporations who donate money to party politics end
up buying commodities at knock down prices - e.g.. Tyson
Foods Inc. acquired a major chink of world chicken
farming post a Bird Flu scam in 1997. The scam was
to make Chinese and Asian chicken farmers go bust or be
forced to pay for unaffordable biosecurity. Tyson
Foods Inc. is an American company with close links to
the CIA. Indeed, James Woolsy (director of the
CIA) even claimed that after the Cold War, the CIA was
to enter a new era of economic espionage!
and the resultant economic terrorism is what we are
witnessing time and again, and this is what the badger
and bTB scam is about.
The European Union
will never reverse it's decision to refuse cattle a
vaccination. The reason is because it would remove
the ability to test for bTB in live herds, as vaccines
promote antibody responses, and it is these antibodies
that is tested for! You would not know if a
positive "reactor" or cow has antibodies because it has
had a vaccine or come into contact with infection via
the environment. The current regime allows control
by the authorities to manipulate trade and prices.
(Please note that dead cows with bTB can be traded - the
EU are only interested in controlling living cows and
Now remember, old
diseases are genetically stable and immunity is almost a
certainty unless the dose is huge (i.e. via a cow with
an immune deficiency who has succumbed atrociously to
the infection and is sneezing and drooling in the faces
of other cows, or an artificial poisoning event).
But here we stray to
uncover another huge scam. That of vaccines and
vaccination theory! This is nothing else but an
assault on the immune system and a poisoning event.
Many vaccines are developed using germs created in
laboratories, ostensibly for germ-warfare, but also for
profiteering via Big Pharma. Vaccine development
is also a major source of new diseases!
Amazingly, the human
TB vaccine (BCG) is dosed with the bovine strain of the
mycobacterium (bTB). Most people believe vaccines
work including the BCG. But remarkably, we are
being dosed with bTB (mycobacterium bovis rather than
the human form - mycobacterium tuberculosis).
Are we giving bTB to the cows??? And guess what
the TB vaccine for cows is - yes, the same as ours!
Cows can be given the human BCG vaccine to prevent bTB,
because humans are being injected with bovine TB!
And not only are we given a non-human pathogen but also
cow DNA, avian DNA (eggs are used to culture the bTB),
formaldehyde and thimerosol (or mercury) to boot!
These are the ingredients of further illnesses,
especially allergies, autoimmune disease and
So we are hearing
cries of get the cows vaccinated from the public and
wildlife organizations, as well as vaccinations for the
badgers. BUT, the vaccines don't work.
There is no evidence for the effectiveness of the BCG
vaccine in humans at all (and why should it when it is a
bovine TB we are being injected with, not a human one?).
Some compare this vaccine theory (and popular myth) to
that of how COW pox was utilized by Jenner to eradicate
the human SMALLpox. This is another lie
perpetrated by the Pharmaceutical industry - please look
this scam up too and just how many people died as a
result of the smallpox jab.
You don't believe me
do you? This is your conditioning, helped by the
probable fact that you will not check this out!
I will help you.
below are some graphs that show mortality of
Tuberculosis in humans over time and the point at which
the vaccine was given to the public (or not). As
you will see, mortality (death) rate has decreased over
time. In the USA, no BCG has been given yet the
graphs look the same. The decrease has to be due
to either, or both, increased immunity (as I've said
already) and increased hygiene (or "biosecurity" if you
prefer the new buzz-word).
Graphs (with source
references) proving that BGC does not work.
An Indian study showing
the BCG vaccine is no more effective than a placebo.
So why are cows
supposedly contracting bTB? There are only 3 very
obvious answers: hygiene at many farms is
appalling, and/or the cows are being poisoned, and/or
their immunity is being compromised. Another
alternative is that the cows are not being affected by
bTB at all, but another pathogen that gives rise to
antibodies similar to those that produce the bTB
antibody. This may not be so strange as you think
when you research the transformative properties of
fungal - bacterial associations (or mycobacteria).
This is complex and I don't wantr to make this piece any
bigger, but fungal infections in grain used for cattle
feed (and other domestic animals) is epidemic.
These fungi can combine with other pathogens (or even
host proteins) to produce "superbugs". Other
"superbugs" with a probable fungal association is AIDS
and BSE-CJD (the latter also affects cattle!)
So, anti-fungals may cure bTB, but curing the disease is
not the goal here...
Research the rest
yourself. But even if you don't and furthermore,
think I'm a crank, you may prefer these statistics:
each year for the following illnesses are,
120,000 for being
50,000 for getting
25,000 for lameness
7,000 for low milk
and many millions,
or 50%, of all new borns because they are male and
useless for the diary industry.
How many are
slaughtered for bTB - just 25,000.
This is a scam for
profiteering, control of the industry, keeping the dirty
secrets of vaccination covered-up, and to create fear
amongst the public and farmers. Farmers, by the
way, that receive above market value compensation for
any "reactors". Is this gag money, or a way for
farmers to keep the compensation money rolling in
because of your willingness to play an ignorant part in
If we say nothing,
and don't research this, the next move is an immediate
land grab and intensification of farming units across
the European Union. Corporate friends of these
unelected dictators will take over - people without
morals nor compassion towards animals or you.
Intensive farming promotes diseases, lowered immunity,
more antibiotics in your meat, more hormones,
fertilizers, and less habitat for wildlife.
It's up to you.

06:02:12 - The New
A new year, but not
just any new year; This is 2012 - Hooray! A new
beginning is imminent - maybe, as many followers of the
much hyped Maya prophecies are hoping. Actually,
and since the mainstream press continually fail to
expose, I will add that this is also an important
turning point for many other ancient cultural traditions
such as Zulu, Aztec, Inca, American Indian, Chinese and
Maori to name just a few.
The Maori for
instance, a "veil" will fall thanks to a meeting of the
Earth and Sky Gods who have seen for too long that
mankind have become so distracted from their true
purpose by greed, war and lust. Of course some see
the falling veil (or curtain or shroud) as a start of a
biblical Armageddon or a return of the righteous.
But other cultures such as the Zulu and Hopi see a
return of other Gods, maybe signaled by lights in the
sky or planetary alignments (like that that gave rise to
the Star of Bethlehem?). A Hindu prophecy
believes a Golden age will return when the sun, moon and
Jupiter all meet, a period when the last incarnation of
Lord Vishnu will appear. However, this Golden Age
will only occur if there is enough enlightened ones
already living on
Obviously, much of
this is interpretation but I for one simply feel
something is about to happen and look forward to it
immensely. The change could be sudden, but more
likely it is a gradual change, most of which has already
happened and 2012 marks the critical mass of
enlightenment being achieved as hoped for by many
Hindus. The end of the Old Age (Kali Yuga) will
transition into a new beginning of less ego, greed,
corruption and lies by those currently in authority.
In my personal
world, this celebration has already begun when on the
17th January I met with the Forestry Commission and
District Councilors to challenge the old beliefs that
Wild Boar in the Forest of Dean are breeding out of
control and a danger to all humanity. About an
hour into the meeting it appeared that the veil suddenly
dropped, when the Forestry Commission suddenly halted
their long held stance of hunting and spreading fear and
agreed to a whole year of no hunting and the beginning
of a new Zeitgeist whereby science and democracy will
now determine the future of these controversial
A few like-minded
friends and myself had been working hard for the last 6
months to make this change happen, not least calling for
a closed-season on hunting the boars, even if just for a
trial period (as is being proposed). Despite my
on-going petitioning, our government hold fast on
allowing the boar to be killed without laws in place to
protect them and as servants of Defra; the most corrupt
and untruthful government department in the UK; my local
Forestry Commission were also expected by many to hold
fast to their dark masters wishes. What a turn
around it was and a small success for my "New Age of
Reason". You can read more on this at Friends of
the Boar blogspot at
www.friendsoftheboar.blogspot.com , a resource I set
up to inform everyone of what "really" happens and about
the "true" nature of the boar.
Safe to say I now
love the Forest again. My thoughts were seriously
jaded whenever I walked within, as death and suffering
are not conducive to any spiritual connection I may have
with the Forest. All is not perfect yet, as many
deer and squirrels are still needlessly slaughtered here
each year by the Forestry Commission - for fun and
profit of course, and the badgers are also being
targeted here for no reason other than to make farmers
feel less guilty about the cruel ways they rear their
animals and reduce them to immunocompromised quivering
wrecks pumped full of antibiotocs, hormones, vaccines
and constantly preganant in the case of dairy cows.
But the wild boar are seriously intelligent and once
native fauna of these woodlands and somehow I feel more
connected to them than any other animal here.
Lesser changes have
also been taking place for myself with respect to
photography. Due in large part to my jaded
feelings about my local Forest and treatment of the wild
boar, I have felt less inclined to pursue the
"frivolous" nature of photography and chasing about
after wildlife. Sometimes the inner self is so
tormented by what is truly happening "out there" it
begins to find much deeper understanding and commection
and no longer wants to take part in any form of
exploitation of wildlife but wants to merely be in their
company and help.
But hopefully, as
the wild boar begin to enjoy their Forest again, I have
renewed myself and look forward to more
photography. And although this sounds
tenuous, I've begun revisiting landscape work, something
I used to enjoy before the difficulties of wildlife
photography took over! Maybe because the landscape
(or habitat) is everything that is important and
controls the details within it, including man and the
wild boar? To bump start my renewal I went down to
the Severn Estuary the other day in preparation for a
landscape workshop that a client has "ordered".
The Severn Estuary
is a wild and continually evolving place, both natural
and via the tinkerings and proximity of man. In a
way my visit showed me that man and nature can actually
co-exist and can result in great beauty and even to the
benefit of nature as a whole - after all, humans are
natural beings too. This seems to go against the
current flow of thinking that man is always bad for the
environment - for there is money and control to be made
from those who think this way!
I've had to re-learn
how to get out of bed early and re-sense that once
familiar feeling of cold air on my lungs, on my clothes
and against my skin as I wandered about in a pre-dawn
darkness with frost on the ground. But the
experience of being guided by yourself, on your own
doorstep, and getting results is what it's all about.
Maybe not the best
landscape photos you'll see these days, but I'm proud to
show you my efforts from literally one hour on a recent
morning at a place on my doorstep I've never been to
before. I realised that great new
discoveries can still be had with little cost right in
your own backyard.
In just the first month
of 2012, I sense some of my true spirit returning and
look forward to the rest of it with renewed passion.
01:12:11 - Is Time
I was meaning to
write about my experience recently when I attended a
ceremony on top of Glastonbury Tor for 18.104.22.168.11,
but so much keeps happening there never seems the "time"
anymore to get around to my website.
Time is always said to go faster when your busy, but the
weird thing is I'm not that busy. In fact I
sometimes find it hard to find something to do - with a
small child in tow - and before I know it, it's dark
again and then bedtime..
The Spirit of the Wildwood often symbolises the yearly
cycles of life, death and rebirth. This was taken during
the deer rut just 2 days after 11:11:11.
Doesn't this remind you of Cave Art?
The only thing keeping me busy, so to speak, is
"thinking" a lot about our wildlife, my place in it, and
the future. I have been doing a lot of reading
too, and I'm now fascinated by how our minds work and
the "nature" of consciousness. "Time", I would
say, is linked to conscious thought. Everyone and
every animal lives at its own speed according to their
conscious connection with the ...... well I don't yet
know! Maybe a God, or the universe, or maybe to
something deeper within the mind itself - a mind that
creates its own future. This would agree with
those who say reality is an illusion.
The remarkable thing that occurred to me at Glastonbury
was that time almost slowed to a stop for a few hours.
About 200 people had gathered there to meditate and to
celebrate that precise moment in time of 11:11 hrs on
11:11:11. I was wandering about with my camera on
my own watching the others do their thing, but at the
same time my mind was freed of all the material things
in my life. I was taking photos more or less
without thought and with as clear a mind as I could by
using Light as a symbol to focus on. The time came
and went and people hugged, others started drumming,
some chanted or sang and others continued their
meditations. Nothing seemed obviously different at
first until I started talking to my family about how
slowly the day had gone. They agreed, and it
became obvious that for the next few hours we were
playing out a scene in our lives yet the clocks were
hardly moving. Trust me, there was no drugs
involved in this! I am still trying to work out
what happened during this illusion or reality.
The Tor is steeped in stories about a consciousness that
brought Light or transformation to those willing to try.
King Arthur, Joseph of Arimathea, Jesus and The
Magdalene are the main contenders for Christians, but
Sufis, Buddhists and Hindus also know of the energy
One clue maybe the reason I had gone there. It was
to help reverse the usual mass hypnosis of Armistice
Day. I went NOT to think war, death and the colour
of a bloody poppy in my mind. I went to mediate on
a future that is beautiful. To help this become
realised I believe I mustn't think of what we
collectively mustn't do (thinking of past mistakes) but
of a future filled with natural harmony and peace.
Many great thinkers have claimed that the cosmos does
not grant prayers according to a negative (I mustn't
do...I don't want...), it only creates a future of
positive intent. If you pray for no war or death
then that thought will only create war and death!
The more who think like this simultaneously the more
likely it is to be played out. I now believe we
have all been tricked into creating conflict, which
creates profit for the few and suffering for the many.
By meditating on a symbol - a flower associated with the
ritual blood letting onto soil, a flower associated with
opium and the drug trade (which has historically funded
wars), and of sadness in the world, it is doing the
opposite of what you may want. The numerology of
11 may also have been reversed by the manipulators to
create control and order out of chaos, when in fact it
should symbolise freedom and transformation.
The Pilgrimage on 11:11:11
11:11:11 was hoped by many to be a moment in "time" when
we could create our own future or become connected to
some higher conscious dimension. For the few
people who were there that day, and the many millions of
others around the world doing the same in their "time
zones", I sincerely hope the future is now brighter than
the one being intended by the unelected thieves,
manipulators and murderers who presently run our country
and planet. This includes those who rape our
planet of its natural riches, kill animal for fun or
profit, and take the miracle of life as something for
Was this a sign? It was a very dull morning and
very windy. Just as the ceremony began the LIGHT
appeared and this sunbeam struck the Tor. No
This is the view over the Somerset Levels.
Here's to Love and Light and a shedding of the skin in
readiness for next year.....
12:08:11 - Good News
and Bad News.
I have had the most
hectic month of my photography career!
Apologies to all those who I did not email or talk to
promptly, or even forgot about, but ever since my monkey
photos hit the press in early July I have been inundated
with well-wishers, press calls and magazine write ups.
Please look at my
Sulawesi Macaque page so I don't need to repeat
myself here! Anyone who is interested may like to
Google "Slater + Monkey + Camera" to see just how big
this story got!
have also been busy doing prints of the monkeys.
Yes I do prints and a poster. Poster is A2 size
and costs £10 (GBP). It is on 180gsm poster paper
and good enough to frame or just pin straight to a wall.
The prints are much better quality in terms of colour
and detail, and they take a little more effort to do (I
do them myself). They cost £20 for A4 and 35 for
A3. I do several versions and formats so please
email me for details - I will send you thumbnails to
look at. All payment will be by PayPal which I
will send to you (you don't need to be registered with
PayPal to use).
I have also made a screensaver / desktop wallpaper that
I can email to you for £20. It is a really fun
image and will make you smile whenever you turn on your
computer. There is a nice space for your icons
too! Email me again for a thumbnail.
The Bad News is all about the Wild
Boar again here in my beloved Forest of Dean. I am
so worried for them now as the population appears to
have crashed. I am also getting eyewitness reports
and other evidence that the Forestry Commission are now
shooting, through need or through bloodlust, piglets and
sows with young. This is a serious welfare issue,
and I have already taken the story to the Daily Mail,
and intend to spread it much further afield when I get
Please link to my
page from here now, again to save me time repeating
myself. I have added a lot more new and amazing
images of the boar just now, so take a quick look - and
a LONG read....

20:06:11 - Life & death.
I don't usually catch Springwatch on the TV, but I
happened to catch an episode that showed a nestbox with
pied flycatchers, and they also debated the possibility
that redstarts compete with them for food as they seem
to share the same insects. It was interesting because I
always try to photograph both these birds every year
here in the Forest of Dean, and it's always been hard to
find redstart and easy for PFs. It has always had me
thinking about the relationship of the two. Last year,
but particularly this year, I have find the opposite
occurring. I have long been a critic of PF nestboxes,
and I am becoming increasingly sure that this has
something to do with the decline of PFs here. Without
the data, which is hard if not impossible to find, it is
hard to prove, but time and again I see PFs outside the
areas with nestboxes and there is always a redstart
nearby. Within the areas with nestboxes, there are fewer
redstarts. Are nestboxes becoming unpopular with PFs
(the redstarts may have realised this long ago?) and
pushing them into competition for food with redstarts?
Is competition more ferocious in nestbox areas?
Additionally, PFs are easily bullied off a nestbox by
other small birds, even blue tits, making life doubly
difficult for them. Maybe competition with just
redstarts is preferable?
I've been watching 2 families of PFs very carefully this
year, one in a box and one in a natural hole far away
from the nestbox area, and it seemed to me the natural
nester was much more active in terms of nest visits with
food - leading to healthier chicks maybe. I have never
seen a natural nest getting visited by tits or the usual
predators of chicks such as woodpeckers and jays, so
maybe it's a case of where there are redstarts there is
food albeit to share, but less disturbance from
unwelcome nest visitors? Just my thoughts. Here is a pic
of this year's pied flycatcher chicks:
Aren't they delicate little things? You have to worry!
Changing the subject, I want to just pay my own albeit
humble tribute to a man called Brian Haw who passed away
this weekend. He lived in a tent outside parliament
since mid 2001 as a protest of UK foreign policy in the
lead up to 911 and the illegal invasion of Iraq (see
link). He was an inspiration and a hero for fighting
the all too forgotten corner for the innocent across the
world caught up in war zones, particularly our own
species youngsters. This is a topic almost never spoken
about due to its totally abhorrent nature. Bully boys
creating wars on behalf of our corporations and the US
war machine's need to protect oil supplies to feed its
airplanes and ships in over 700 bases in over 100
countries. The daily consumption of oil by the US
military equals that of Sweden. It is a self-fulfilling
need to invade countries to keep the war machine alive.
It is an industry - a military-industrial complex that
needs to protect fuel, air space, water and food for a
quarter of a million US soldiers living in these
permanent bases, even long after the "war" has finished.
Feeding this Empire's grid requires, and is their evil
justification for, war that kills not just those who
attack them but millions of innocent children every
year. They call this "National Security". It is actually
"International Insecurity". This does not include the
injured and seriously ill citizens of the planet dying
from the toxic effects of depleted uranium weapons and
biological agents, some of which are included in
vaccines that are being promoted by the west
(pharmaceutical corporations) under the disguise of
humanitarian and health aid!. Thank you Brian for all
your efforts, you will be missed by many. I only wish I
met and spoke to you more than I did.

person's life, but how he lived the dash between them."
24:05:11 - Lining the Nest.
The weather this year has been brilliant so far and a
relief for so many of our breeding birds.
Many species seem to be a little ahead of what I've seen
over the last few years, a sign of a return to a normal
Spring, maybe? Yes, it's now accepted the climate has
been cooling since 2000, so hopefully that trend has
started to reverse again. It
may also be great news for our adders for they too have
Forest Adder fresh from hibernation
For some reason the scientists think that DNA tests will
uncover why. Maybe they know something more serious is
happening much akin to the plight of amphibians around
the world - genetic mutations possibly occurring due to
a toxic environment - such as radioactive fallout from
nuclear power stations and especially from "depleted"
uranium weapons used in the Balkans, Iraq, and now
Libya. Or maybe it's due to chemicals in many airplane
vapour trails these days - many researchers are
uncovering evidence of
chemical experiments (see link) with the climate -
and your health too (what is this new fear of smog about
eh?)...just connect the dots... Of course, the warming /
cooling of our climate and strange things happening to
our wildlife may also be due to naturally occurring
radiation (see link) from the sun or galactic
My chick Indigo has long since fledged her nest and is
now running around demanding more and more time from me.
I hardly find the time to get out and about with my
camera, and when i do I'm so out of touch with things
here in the Forest of Dean I find it hard to find
anything worth a photograph. I have thus resorted to
nest photography - the irony! I've never before been
"into" nests, but they are strangely compelling in that
they give just a little more insight into the
dedications, hardships, failings and successes of our
wild animals. I feel somewhat like an interloper prying
into someone else's business, and as such I respect even
more the privacy and welfare of these tiny bundles of
fluff and energy. Here are a few examples:
Nuthatch and Wood Warbler
I have many more to
show and will in due course put them all up on the website. In the meantime just
enjoy nature and all the benefits it brings into your life.
17:02:11 - A Climate of Change - Thank Goodness!
The big and much hyped sell-off of the public forests in
the UK has been scrapped today, or at least that what
the government are saying now. A lot of hot air, not to
mention forests of paper in consultation documents,
letters to MPs, replies from SW1, leaflets, signs and
newspaper lines, has
been spent in large volumes that would in itself have
contributed significantly to climate change and raised
profits of the pulp industry.
The entire debate was to my mind a red herring from the
outset, as nobody seemed to speak common sense on the matter, but rather just
recite what someone else was saying. The politicians keep bleating it is all for
"Big Society" not "Big Government". This included our snivelling career MP, Mark
Harper, who would rather cowtow to Cameron and his bankster puppet masters,
rather than his constituents, but also the voices of angry residents and the
HOOF campaign who used fear and spin in the effort to fight the government's
plan of change.
But after speaking with some of the leaders in the HOOF
(Hands Off Our Forest) Campaign, I again realised and
agreed with them that we live in a world of politics
that is not working for your rights and privileges, but
for corporate interests only. This is the UKplc. It is
the Statutory system often misleadingly called "Society"
that runs on a for-profit basis, including taxation and
fines for anyone breaking the "rules". This is not law
but a deceitful system that "Acts" as though it is law
(by your consent). You
see, Big Society IS Big Government (both run for profit
in exactly the same misleading way)
The government had simultaneously
enacted a public consultation document about how we want
the future of forest management and ownership to go, at
the same time as a background change to an existing
"Act" (law?) that would make the consultation a waste of
time. It seems they had already agreed a plan for
sell-off and privatisation without proper procedure of
introducing a Green Paper then White Paper to engage in
discussions with the public and elected officials. The
Public Bodies Bill (precursor to an "Act"), as it is
known is/was (?) being simultaneously pushed through
with clear aims to take away current legal protection
measures given to the Forest of Dean in 1981 (after a
long fight by angry residents or "Foresters") thus
allowing sale to private investors. Maybe this
illegality is the real reason for withdrawal of the
sell-off, rather than it just simply being a mistake by
fall-girl Caroline Spelman, who has
today apologised (see link) for "her" mistake (does
anyone actually believe ministers can change laws on
their own say-so without pressures from elsewhere?).
I am sure this will raise it's
head again once the Public Bodies Bill is passed, and
perhaps in a more aggressive form as part of some future
invention such as some UK international agreement to
trade pollution permissions through the Carbon Tax
Until then, I wish the Wild Boar and all other woodland
creatures peace in their natural home.
14:01:11 - Wading through Winter
For the first time since May I
actually got away from the Forest of Dean and stayed in
the UK to do some photography! It was Christmas and I
visited the Isle of Man with family for a week, when
down came the snow. The Island was in shock and not a
single road was gritted. For 3 days it didn't stop
falling and everyone was confined to home - good
practice for martial law I thought! With temperatures
down to -3C much of the island's birdlife fled to the
coast. When finally I could venture out, the beach in
Douglas gave me some much needed time away from the
hideous Christmas TV.
In fact, the weather over
Christmas Eve and Day turned out to be fantastic, with
superb light and clear skies, just perfect for lying
down on the beach! Well OK, it was freezing, my hands
hurt and body went numb as I lay motionless in full view
of bemused Christmas shoppers. I doubted they could even
see my intended subjects from the short distance from
tide to promenade, which perhaps explained why so many
dog walkers and Christmas strollers came up to me to
have a nosey, and at the same time of course scaring
away the prize - waders! It's been quite a while since I
last enjoyed these tiny little tearaways that play a
teasing and torturous game of "you creep as close as you
can and when you put your eye to your camera I'll fly
away!". Waders are so small that to get anything like
decent sizes in the frame you need to be within 5 metres
or so of them with a 600mm lens with 1.4x teleconverter.
The birds included
ringed and grey plover,
turnstone and sanderling, accompanied by gulls,
rock pipits and
Yes, I really enjoyed the
challenge and even though the light was short-lived at
midwinter, the couple of hours a day I had with them was
the best present I could have had.
Douglas Beach, Isle of Man, on Christmas Day. Great for
lying down on!
- Trees, Climate and Health
It's the end of the harvest or Samhain, and I'm glad to
say I'm back! It's been a tough few months
harvesting my efforts whether it be photos or my
daughter! She now walks and gets ever more
demanding of my time and doesn't like me on the computer
updating websites, and if ignored will climb everything
in sight (my genes!!).
On my return from Svalbard it took over 4 weeks
just to get my images processed and ready to send out to
Aqua-Firma (baby to blame again!). At the same
time I'm trying to reply to an increased volume of
emails, organising workshops, a talk (very time
consuming!), and last but not least, I'm now involved
with the UK's best known photography monthly, Practical
There have been several alarming, as well as some
overdue, events on the world and UK stage that should
concern us. Worst is the
sell off of Forestry Commission land
(click link). Half is to be sold to privatisation
(Tories in power!) and hence threatening a huge
amount of land home to British Wildlife. Houses
may be built when or if trees are cleared, and more and
more theme parks may appear, also at great cost not just
to the ecology but the spiritual welfare of us as well.
We are told this is due to the UK deficit. This is
a joke of enormous proportion. The UK has
been bankrupt for decades. Income tax goes mainly
towards the paying off JUST the interest payments on
"fiat" currency (pounds sterling) bought from a Central
Bank - The Bank of England. This bank prints
money simply to sell to the government at interest.
When the government needs more cash, rather than print
it's own, it buys it from this private company (it is
not a public body as they want you to believe).
But many banks are now publicly owned that are offshoots
of the Central Bank. If The Bank is owed, as it
is, and it's mainly ours, then we all can say - hey
Bank, let's just drop the debt and start again. I
forego the debt I'm owed! Bingo. But they
don't because the BofE is one huge illegal, deceitful
and certainly uncharitable entity this country has been
burdened with. Our leaders are coerced into to
supporting it - they are shown pictures of JFK etc.
One story linked to all of this could be (I say could be
as no-one else has made the link yet as far as I know)
the selling off of trees as carbon based funny money.
Trees could be worth vast fortunes if traded on a
corrupt market - which carbon-trading is! If you
didn't know, carbon trading was introduced to the world
hidden in the Bank Bailout Bill (HR1424 Division B:
sections 100-115), and as part of the population's
gullibility in believing carbon is an enemy where the
climate is concerned. Mmmm - you are made of
Carbon too! But thankfully, some scientists are
now getting the story of climate change being the
greatest pseudoscientific hoax
(click link) ever foisted upon mankind into the press
(October 9th, 2010). I leave it to you to read the
details and put these connections under your own
scrutiny. Don't take what I say as truth, find it
for yourself, not from others.
I believe the forests, including the world's great
rainforests, are our spiritual heart. They give us
peace and silence. The trees give us oxygen to
breathe and homes to zillions of animals. They are
possibly ecosystems in their own individual right.
Trees help prevent floods and stabilise what could be
dusty ground that winnows away in a wind. We need
more trees, not less. We need more space to
breathe and escape the corporate and stressful world
this aggressor bears upon us. The monetary and
moral benefit to health in keeping our forests intact
will far outweigh any other form of profit. We
will never get other nations to preserve their forests
if we cut ours down. We will never get them to
grow more forests until we do likewise. This is
the World's Harvest.
Please fight to save your nearest forest, as well as the
far distant ones in the tropics.
