Safari From Home

The 4th October sees the return of World Animal Day. This idea started back in 1925 in Germany as a way to improve the welfare of animals, officially taking off in 1931. This particular day of the year was chosen as it coincides with the day of Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of ecology, including animals. Legend has it that Saint Francis was able to talk to animals and even tamed a wild wolf – the original Dr Doolittle!!

To mark the occasion, the lovely Kelly at KLOnlineShoppingEvents is hosting a Safari themed market evening. The perfect opportunity to grab yourself all things animal related, and goodies from small businesses. Be sure to sign up to the Facebook/and this webpage to see the latest about sellers and sneak peeks in the run up to this event. All from the comfort of your own home too. I tend to get myself comfy on the sofa in my pj’s with something to munch on hehe.

Safari can be defined as an overland journey to observe and photograph wildlife, as well as hiking and sightseeing. This is definitely on my bucket list – to be truly immersed in nature and your surroundings, seeing wildlife in their natural environment. This sounds like the greatest adventure of all to me! I assume it would be one of those experiences you wish you could relive for the first time over and over again. Oh well, maybe one day!

Check out the Shop for Safari creations

When we think of safari we normally think of the ‘Big Five’ – these are the Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Elephant and Buffalo. Originally seen as the most dangerous, therefore, trophies for hunters and poachers, but now seen as the most desirable to be observed. At a safe distance obviously, I know I wouldn’t want to take any of these on!!

Link

For those of us stuck in the UK (pretty much all of us thanks to Covid lol), here’s a few suggestions for Safari Parks across the country. I can highly recommend West Midlands Safari Park, and Longleat is on my list of places to go to! Wildlife parks and zoos have an obligation to support and encourage research which will improve the welfare of captive animals. In addition, research at captive animal collections can generate knowledge on topics such as animal behaviour, physiology and reproduction. This knowledge can ultimately be used to assist species conservation.

One of my friends also introduced me to Zooniverse. This is a great way to enjoy the safari from the comfort of your own home. They have lots of Projects run by scientists and ecologists, and they need your help!! They have thousands of photos from trial cameras. Your task is to help identify the animals in the photos, and what they’re up to. You feel like you’re spying on them and it gets quite addictive lol. You see lots of animals, some even in funny poses etc.

Be sure to check it out. There are other projects to on there too relating to other wildlife / habitats across the world.

There are also lots of Wildlife programmes available on the like of BBCiPlayer etc. Why not check out a Sir David Attenborough show educating the nation about all things to do with the environment. He’s a national treasure, who should be wrapped up in cotton wool!!

I used to also watch a show called Meerkat Manor (by Animal Planet), following Flower and her family as they go about their business in the Kalahari Desert. It’s like a soap drama and gets quite addictive!

Birds of a feather

With the upcoming Bird of Crafters Event coming up, I thought I’d look into the symbolism behind our feathered friends, and famous characters we know and love.

Birds have been around for millions of year – did you know they’re descendants of dinosaurs!! You’ll never look at the common wood pigeon the same again hehe.

They come in all shapes, sizes, colours, and have different connotations.

Birds are generally known to symbolize freedom because they can walk on the earth and swim in the sea like us humans, but they also have the ability to fly into the sky. This is where the idiom ‘free as a bird’ comes from.

A lot of cultures believe that they symbolize eternal life and some would say that they serve as the connection between heaven and earth, acting as messengers.

Robins in particular fit this, as they’re said to appear when a lost loved one is here. Or there’s also the phrase, ‘a little birdie told me’.

Birds capture the attention of many in the real world, so it’s no surprise that they often appear in fairy tales, fiction and television/film/theatre.  In “bird” tales, birds are often the agents of transformation or are themselves transformed into different creatures – e.g. The Ugly Duckling, or even Swan Lake.

Did you know there’s going to be a sequel to Chicken Run?!?!

Do you have a favourite famous character bird? I think mine has to be Hedwig. She was a real companion to Harry, and has a sassy character.

Why Shop Small

The UK has a wide variety of retail and service providers across the country – over 300,000 in total!!

But why should we try and shop small/local?

Whilst the bigger providers might offer more standard items, or can compete on price, this doesn’t always make them better.

Some things you can’t put a price on – for example, you get more of a personal experience with a smaller business. You could be on first name basis and become more like a friend. And as we get to know you better, the more of a personal experience we’ll be able to offer. Our products, services and recommendations will be bespoke to you. If anything, this increases the variety available and makes them more unique.

And we appreciate it more too. Every sale helps to fund a dream, and ultimately our lives. I don’t think the Big Boss at Amazon etc. would do a happy dance for every order they receive, or even bat an eyelid if someone didn’t purchase from them. And because of this, our reputation means everything to us, increasing the level of service we try to provide.

Spending money with a small business also helps keep more money within your local economy. Research by local authorities’ shows that for every £1 spent with a small or medium-sized business, 63p goes back to the local economy. This compares to 40p in every £1 spent with larger businesses.

Small businesses also tend to spend the money they earn locally, buying products and services from other small businesses. It’s a real win-win situation for our local businesses and communities, helping each other to strive.

As a small business I try to source my materials from smaller businesses.

As a customer too, I have my go to places for gifts etc. based on the fantastic products and service I know I’ll receive from those I network with regularly, and other businesses they recommend.

I think the current situation with Covid (sorry, I said the dreaded C word!) has increased awareness of the importance of shopping small.

Use us or loose us.

We also powered through whilst the big brick/mortar stores had to close.

Royal Mail and other couriers saw a huge increase in the number of parcels being delivered during lockdown. I think there has been more happy mail sent to loved ones we haven’t been able to see or speak to properly.
