If you’ve traveled with Apex field leader Gerald Broddelez, you know he is quite fond of all the creatures he finds in nature. So you may not be surprised to learn that Gerald and his family recently embarked on an ambitious project to turn their garden into a winter sanctuary for the area’s birds, mammals, and insects.
In this video—filmed on location in the Ardennes region of Belgium—Gerald will show us step-by-step how they built an elaborate bird feeder, an artificial den for badgers and foxes, and an inviting insect hotel. It’s really quite fascinating!
