About the Project
Think Ecos’ latest project is the publication of ‘Wildlife Memories’. A book launch was held at The Hill of the O’Neill, Dungannon in June 2021, to celebrate the publication of Wildlife Memories. The invited speaker was Margaret Ritchie, Baroness of Downpatrick who spoke of the importance of promoting environmental awareness. She is currently involved with environmental legislation that is being scrutinised in the House of Lords.
Many of the book’s 34 contributors, authors, artists and photographers, were present at this well-attended event. The book contains prose, poetry, original artworks and photography. Several of the short chapters recount stories of wildlife from the authors younger days. The writers describe corncrakes, otters, hedgehogs, and lampreys as well as other often forgotten wildlife. Some of the contributors also describe a lost way of life.
The publishers, Think Ecos hope the book will act as a bridge to achieve positive wildlife actions now and in the future. The book was fully funded by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and if you would like to read a copy of Wildlife Memories it can be found in all public libraries and is available on request. A PDF copy is available on this page below.
