Asleep in their drowsy villas, sheltered by benevolent shopping malls, they wait patiently for the nightmares that will wake them into a more passionate world' J.G. Ballard How many of us sometimes feel that we are scratching at the walls of this life, seeking to find our way into a wider space beyond? That our mild, polite existence sometimes seems to crush the breath out of us?

He shows how, by restoring and rewilding our damaged ecosystems on land and at sea, we can bring wonder back into our lives."@en ;
