0101Climate Psychology2019052520190527 (RU)

Tessa Fleming explores the threat from climate change and ever-decreasing biodiversity, how Northern Ireland is likely to be affected by this changing global picture and what is being done to help limit the effects.

We delve into the animal life found in and around Northern Ireland and celebrate the green spaces that act as a refuge for the increasingly threatened natural world around us.

There is little doubt the planet we live on is changing, but why are more people not motivated to act? In the first of a new series, Tessa Fleming looks at the psychology behind why many choose to ignore climate change. She visits a seal sanctuary and witnesses their release back into the wild, and finds out more about one of N Ireland's rarest birds, the barn owl. Plus, naturalist and conservationist Dara McAnulty tells us about the value of nature to mental wellbeing.
