Ric Nattrass is a naturalist who believes passionately in the power of knowledge. One of his missions is to spread the word about how people and wildlife can coexist in comfort and safety in suburbia and beyond. Ric also believes that one of the most effective ways to communicate is through verse and song. People love rhymes - there is music in rhymes and they are fun, particularly when shared - and if those rhymes happen to convey his message while children and adults are enjoying them, so much the better.
Some of these verses are rollicking rhymes, one if non-sense verse, and some are lyrical. They have been recited to people of all ages at the Woodford Folk Festival, a festival of national and international repute held annually in Queensland; to gatherings of professional and amateur naturalists; on ABC Radio's "Wildlife Talkback", Ric's extremely popular weekly spot as Queensland ABC Radio's Wild Man; to children at schools and libraries - wherever this most entertaining, enthusiastic and knowledgeable communicator is welcomed.
