Nature Play SA releases the ultimate guide to South Australia’s nature

Where Birds Sing and Wildflowers Dance features 50 local authors, all to inspire South Aussies to explore the fantastic natural surrounds of the state.

Not-for-profit organisation Nature Play has produced a one-of-a-kind nature guide, ‘Where Birds Sing and Wildflowers Dance’ that encourages all South Australians to re-connect with nature.

Where Birds Sing and Wildflowers Dance is an ideal companion for budding nature-lovers who want to explore South Australia’s wild places, introducing readers to rare and unique species including the tiny Giles Planigale that grows to the size of a 50-cent coin and the Whibly Wattle, the most endangered of Australia’s thousand plus species of wattle.

The 368-page bible to SA’s natural environments is filled with poetry, photography, and ideas on how to connect with nature along with almost 700 hand-drawn illustrations of SA’s native plants, animals, and other life forms.

Printed in SA, Nature Play SA, a not-for-profit organisation, produced the hardback in hopes of connecting the local community with their often overlooked local natural environment.

With 50 South Australian conservationists, experts, and nature advocates having contributed – the book provides an opportunity to explore deeper connections with nature and ourselves.

“Nature is the perfect antidote to our busy modern lives to help reduce stress and improving our mental health and overall,” Nature Play CEO Sarah Sutter says.

“This book will go far beyond ecological concepts and identification of plants and wildlife – it explores our emotional connection to nature and ourselves,” says author Jason Tyndall.

All other proceeds support the work of Nature Play SA to connect children with nature.
