In this podcast, we will be hearing about others' perspectives on introducing nature and the outdoors into their bereavement journey.

We explore the many benefits that nature can provide, activities to get involved in, and how to use the outdoors to support yourself or loved ones during a personal loss.

Over the last few months, we have heard from a wide range of people, some who work outside, some who are experts on bereavement, and many with a moving story to tell. Each has a different look on how nature has helped and supported them during their grief, and all have a unique perspective, story and journey. 

In our latest episode, we hear from Mark Liebenow, a writer from America who shares his journey with us after losing his wife at a young age, and his connection with Yosemite National Park. Check out his writing via his links on his Facebook page:

You can give that (and our other episodes) a listen, here:

Our next episode will be released this Wednesday, and is the last for a while. We are still looking for contributors to this podcast, so if you have a personal or professional story to share, then please send me an email at:

Leave Only Footprints Engagement Coordinator, BCP Council

I am currently the Leave Only Footprints Engagement Coordinator at BCP Council. Over the past few years, I have taken on a few different roles within the organisation, based at Hengistbury Head Nature Reserve following my BSc in Animal Behaviour and alongside completing my MSc in Biodiversity Conservation at Bournemouth University. Within my role, I engage with a wide range of people over a wide range of topics from litter to the local wildlife and habitats, with the aim of reducing negative behaviours and encouraging interest and passion for nature. I am also interested and have experience in collecting and analysing data around these subjects. I have previously held a role as a research assistant with Bournemouth University exploring the most effective ways/methods to engage young people with nature, through running focus groups and literature reviews. I have a special interest in the effect of being outdoors in nature on wellbeing, especially the bereaved, and have started a podcast called The Nature of Loss; sponsored by BCP Council.
