About me
and the show

My name is Devon Bowker. Ím a naturalist, high school science teacher, father, podcaster, writer, and geek of all trades. This is my passion project.

The Wild Life blog + podcast is my place of exploration, and I hope it can be for you, too. I started this in 2017 and, for years, I’ve had a hard time landing. It’s only recently I decided it’s okay to fly. To create, to seek, to adventure, to find yourself immersed in wonder and oneness with the natural world–that’s what I hope to do with this blog and podcast. Anything and everything from answering small questions to diving deep into the science. The Wild Life blog + podcast follows the threads that connect us all, no matter how thin or how small. I appreciate you being here.

This is a wonderful podcast that really helps combine a passion for the natural world with storytelling and the human experience. A big part of conservation is about connecting people with the natural world and inspiring them to care about it, and the hosts have done a great job of doing that.

Love it! Informative and fun! As a listener, I get to learn whilst having a giggle! The Wild Life is my favourite podcast and I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to ‘branch’ out. (that worked…)

“I listened to your new episode. It is a dark and difficult time and your words opened my eyes wide and went straight into my being. I hope you can get the support you need as a teacher and a parent. You seem like a beautiful human. I’m new to this podcast world but your work is lovely.
