Connecting with Nature

J. Junker

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.



Mindy Todd is the host and producer of The Point on WCAI which examines critical issues for Cape Cod and the Islands. She brings more than 30 years of experience in radio and television to WCAI.
