Would you like to win a the fab BBC hardback publication “Nature’s Great Events”? To enter, all you have to do is send us a new random act of wildness to feature on our website!

Each chapter of the book is set in a different location on our planet and shows how immensely powerful natural forces can drive chain reactions involving everything from microscopic organisms to entire tracts of rainforest, ultimately culminating in a spectacular natural event. From the flooding of the Okavango Delta in Southern Africa, attracting great herds of near starving elephants into the jaws of waiting lions, to the melting of the Arctic ice disrupting hunting polar bears, the book follows the fortunes of a few key characters before, during and after each great event.
