Who is Stuart 'The Wildman' Mabbutt?

I had to evolve, adapt and diversify a few short years ago, when in November 2014 I was finally diagnosed with aggressive Rheumatoid Arthritis and in February 2017 with Fibrolmyalgia which causes intense mental fogginess.

Having been in business since 1988 running a wildlife gardening business around the university city of Oxford. When I was led in bed at the end of 2014, unable to get up unaided, and hardly able to feed myself as I couldn't even get my hand to my mouth. Or eat properly as my jaw was immobilised due to the Arthritis. What was in the forefront of my mind, was "How can I make still make a contribution and earn myself a living".

From that point it has been an evolving situation with my creative work alongside getting on top of my health and adapting personally.

I discovered a sensory engagement with nature helped me manage my pain, and wearing my hat and performing as 'The Wildman' took the pain away for the duration of the performance.

Which opened the doors to nature giving me a future and being able to still make a contribution to society and help give nature a voice.

My Creative Work

Get involved in this brave new opportunity to help nature and the environment.

I now write wildlife gardening books, with books 1 and 2 already published and available as eBooks on Amazon Kindle. Book 3 and 4 are being proof read prior to publishing. Then I will work on the next called 'Angels On My Path', that contains observations, poetry, lyrics and prose of the people I have met along my way.

I give consultations and tutorials to people in their own gardens using the 'Gardening By Numbers' concept.

I give lectures 1) Wildlife Gardening In Everyday Gardens 2) Tales about travelling around making wildlife radio and TV/Online shows 3) How Nature Gave Me Future.

I run nature sensory workshops for families, individuals and groups. Showcasing how nature can be used for pain and stress management, plus team-building.

This is where you can become a valued part of the team and help progress my creative work yet further.

The real creative area of my work is as a wildlife sound recordist. I make an independent wildlife radio show called 'Going Wild With Wildlife', for hospital, community and internet radio stations. Currently 11 stations (hospital, internet and community stations) have or are running my shows, and I'm currently transmitting somewhere over 30 times per week. This material can be re-purposed for use within the Talking Newspaper movement, that helps those with sight impairments. Would be great to engage that part of the population that are often isolated as well as similar groups. Together we can achieve so much.

Here are some links to my radio work:

I also make an audio blog called 'Inspirations For Living', that is in the podcast style, within which I explore the challenges in life and how to overcome them. I am hoping to expand on this and have regular guests on the show too. My Audio Blog 'Inspirations For Living'.


We will be running crowdfunding campaigns to help progress the following area of work, and your involvement on Patreon is a key part of that funding drive.

I am also working on a TV/Online show called 'The Peoples Countryside', that aims to give nature a voice and improve the state of nature by giving interviewees the opportunity to asked viewers for the help they need to progress their work. The idea is to develop trips around Britain and abroad where we do filming, record for the radio shows and also document the state of nature in photographic form. This will allow future conservationists to make educated decisions regarding how to manage habitats going forward.

The Future


Having faced severe ill-health and having had my mother pass away in December 2016 who was my main carer, my major aim is to take nature onto the stage and by Easter 2021 perform at the O2 in London.

I want to direct the focus on all areas of my work towards the worlds seas and oceans. They are absorbing much of the environmental impacts that humans have on the environment, but are nearing capacity. The have locked up in them many of the solutions we humans face. So deserve focused work done on them.

This work has legs and a real opportunity to change lives and help nature so join me on the unique if unorthodox journey. I look forward to working with you.

This will enable me to get some good voice recognition software which will help me no end in my creative work.

1) When I have a bad Rheumatoid Arthritis flare my hands can be painful so it will help me to type.

2) Sometimes, the level of confusion I experience resulting from my health challenges makes it difficult to type out that which is in my mind. It seems my brain doesn't talk to my hands.

At times I have to write and type with my eyes closed so I can concentrate and eliminate the distracting messages and imagery the brain has to deal with during every moment of every day. Working with my eyes closed isn't something I've mastered yet!

Talking to my computer will allow me to keep writing on those days.
