Young activist Dara McAnulty on his passion for nature

From Nine To Noon, 10:07 am on 31 July 2020

Sixteen-year-old Dara McAnulty turned his blog about the natural world around him into a diary, which has been published amid the coronavirus crisis.

Diary of a Young Naturalist  follows a year in Dara's life through the seasons, and is part memoir, part nature journal. His environmental activism has led to comparisons with Greta Thunberg.

The book also provides an insight into what it's like to be a teenager living with autism - something his mother, brother and sister also have.
