Ethics, Policy and Environment 13 (3):295-312 (2010)

Comparing the nature encounters of Gerald Durrell with our current climate of?stranger danger?, health and safety neurosis, and the beguilement and blunting of the senses by technological advances presents a worrying picture of a new era of nature and culture deprivation. However, even in the most unlikely places, a rich engagement with nature can be rekindled. Central to such recovery is access to nearby nature that allows practical engagement rather than merely detached on-looking. In my conclusion I outline examples where this has been made possible in the challenging settings of socially deprived urban areas
