Today we’re visiting some mountain ranges right here in the middle of the Australian desert. Some busy grey crowned babblers are making their nest, flying up and down and up and down. Watching on, is a frill-necked lizard sitting very still. Only his chest moves as he breathes in and out. Even though he isn’t moving, he is actually very busy on the inside.
Today we’re visiting a Rainforest, where we meet two different kinds of birds, a yellow-bellied sunbird and brush turkey. Both birds are tending to their nests and helping their young to grow. We all need others to help us, and to help others, so we can grow and get stronger.
Today we’re visiting the summit of a mountain. We’re going to journey up to the top, but so that it’s not overwhelming, we’re going to break the trek down into small, manageable sections. Along the way we’ll make some friends, as we piece each small task together to get to the top.
Today we’re visiting a forest. A spotted nightjar owl flies back to his hollow where two baby owlets wait. One owlet is very talkative and extroverted, whilst the other is quiet and introverted. Are you more like the talkative owlet? Or more of a quiet type… Happy to watch and listen.
Today we’re visiting a leafy, green gully. As the sun disappears, some animals are getting ready for the evening, including a wombat friend. He’s dug a big burrow and is heading out for the for a night time wander. His burrow is attracting some visitors, do you think he’ll share his home?
Today we’re visiting a savanna. A wild mob of Brumbies are galloping across the sandy desert, leaving a cloud of dust in their wake. A mare is encouraging her foal to join the rest of the group. Adventure awaits but the little foal is nervous. It’s okay to feel nervous, everyone feels nervous sometimes.
Today we’re visiting the botanical gardens. A chorus of Currawongs is singing in the trees and a mother duck is gathering her ducklings together, ready for a walk. All families are different and that’s what makes them special. Sometimes our friends can feel like family. What’s important is finding the people who make you feel like you can really be yourself. Who make you feel like you belong.
When Chloe is sent off to live with her mysterious and eccentric grandmother she learns an unbelievable secret. Grandma Ivy is none other than Mother Nature herself! And Chloe is next in line to assume to the power and responsibility of the job. Can a twelve-year old learn to balance the entire world’s ecosystem while just trying to fit in at her new school? Only Mother Nature knows.
