I have been called a “truly WILD man” by Kate Humble (Presenter, BBC TV) and I am affectionately known as “Jungle Dave” by my friends. I spent a year, half living and working with indigenous people in the Amazon rainforest. They taught me the skills and practices of living alongside nature. I have also studied with Ray Mears and his team to hone my traditional skills in bushcraft. For the past 15 years, I have been teaching bushcraft skills to kids, adults and business teams, through courses, parties and fun days out. My goal has always been to rewild people to get them to reconnect with nature because I see how a day in the woods boosts everyone’s mental well-being. Now research has demonstrated the real quantifiable benefits, even a few minutes around green spaces has been shown to have a positive effect. It has never been more important for us to get out in nature, not only will it impart numerous health benefits hopefully people will value it more and as David Attenborough said, “No one will protect what they don’t care about, and no one will care about what they have never experienced".
