A Force of Nature

Liam O'Farrell illustrates for BBC Countryfile magazine

BBC Countryfile Magazine recently commissioned Liam O'Farrell to produce another illustration based on using SmartPhones to track down, and conserve wildlife.

Can technology bring us closer to nature?

As a species, for the first time in our history, we have become networked. We carry phones. We check our status updates. We share videos of our friends and our families and, inexplicably, YouTube videos of cats doing ridiculous things. We are the generation most removed from nature and technology is why, we’re told.

But what if it’s not? Could screen-time, so often vilified for removing us from nature, also be the thing that better links us to it?

In the article Jules Howard meets the people who, far from being distanced from nature, are engaging and exploring nature in new ways courtesy of the technology that sits within their pockets.
