Wildlife Stories

In April 2020 Spirit of Suffolk put a call out for wildlife stories from around the world. The main goal was to share these stories with Wildlife and Conservation students at Suffolk New College who were having to stay indoors due to the outbreak of Coronavirus. Each day throughout May I shared one of the videos across our social media platforms and website, and of course sending directly to the students also!

We had a remarkable selection of stories and encounters from a diverse range of species including grizzly bears, orangutans, killer whales, wild pigs, humpback whales, wolves, mountain lions, buzzards and more!

Thank you so much to everyone that submitted a video and here is the project in full!

I hope that you enjoy!
