The legacy of Gilbert White’s work is one that demonstrates man’s of love nature…
Gilbert’s studious approach to observing species and his avid recordings of gardening, weather and local wildlife are some of the first to show a different approach to man’s relationship with nature. Affectionately known as the father of ecology, he also studied the relationships between animals and their relationships with humans.
