Get Active: volunteer, experience, connect with the natural world

We're so sad to hear the news about Paul O'Grady's passing.  He did so much for people and animals, both in Britain and around the world.  He was a true gentleman, compassion, kind, caring and funny.  All our thoughts are with his family, people and animals, his friends and of course everyone at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.  They have set up a Tribute Fund for Paul O'Grady which you can donate to here.  Rest in peace, Paul, and thank you for all you did to bring animals to us on our screens and for all you did for them.  You will be so missed.

The Mating Game starts on BBC1, Sunday 3rd October 2021

Posted on



The Mating Game kicks off on BBC1 tonight with scenes of courting and companionship (Sunday 3rd October 2021) and Sir David Attenborough narrates.   A species very survival depends on them being able to breed, so this is a critical topic.

As many species are threatened by habitat loss, poaching, a lack of food and water, pollution and climate change, it is essential that species can reproduce.  This is harder for some animals than others – you’ll see that amongst the episode there’s one called Against All Odds. 

There are five episodes covering:

  1. Grasslands (that’s on Sunday 3rd October)
  2. Oceans
  3. Jungles
  4. Freshwater
  5. Against All Odds – this one features animals who really have the odds stacked against them so they have had to develop extraordinary strategies to breed and survive

The programme comes to us from the makers of A Perfect Planet.  Here’s its website – there are some truly stunning videos and photographs so do take a look.
