Where the Birds Sing and Wildflowers Dance
Written by Nature Plays General Manager Jason Tyndall and produced by Nature Play SA, we believe this guide is more than a book. It’s a renewed narrative of connecting to nature and ourselves. Drawing upon art and science, it crafts a beautiful and compelling story of South Australia’s wildlife, plants, and ecosystems. It explores notions of self – such as love, belief, doubt – while entwining ecological concepts of habitats, symbiotic relationships, fire, environmental clearance, species behaviour, extinction, and recovery.
It is a bold approach to conservation education and seeks to open the pathway to recognising nature is at the centre of who we are, as people and as a collective.
In the pages, readers will find a collection of poetry, photography, ideas to connect with nature and over 680 species of plants, animals, and other life forms. This guide is for the dreamers, adventurers, creative souls, and conservationists: it’s your companion to exploring and reflecting on South Australia’s wild spaces.
