Connecting with Nature
As our population grows and more wild spaces are developed, humans are spending less time in nature. There is growing evidence that a nature deficit can have negative impacts on our physical and emotional well-being, not to mention what it means for the entire ecosystem. On The Point, we talk with nature writer Richard Louv about the re-connecting with the natural world. His latest book is Our Wild Calling: How Connecting with Animals can Transform Our Lives and Save Theirs.
