Thanks for visiting talk: Wildlife
I have been a wildlife enthusiast, some would say obsessive, since I had the good fortune to visit Kruger National Park when I was twelve. The two-and-a-half days I spent in the Park were part of a school trip whilst living in South Africa.
I still have vivid memories of the experience, which included bumping into a male Impala in the camp. There was less than two-meters between us and, being only 12 years-old, it was easily as tall as I was. Even though it was well armed with impressive horns, I can’t remember feeling scared. I do remember a buzz of excitement which may have been the trigger for my love of wildlife. I am still very passionate about wildlife and get a real kick out of talking to people about it.
I strongly believe that we only care about the things we have a knowledge and understanding of. I also believe that if people are exposed to nature, they will learn to love it. I have therefore devised a number of natural history activities for families, schools and groups designed to introduce the incredible wildlife we share the planet with and the on-going efforts to conserve it.
Curriculum based and general Natural History educational activities for schools.
I offer a number of wildlife activities for families and beginners, delivered at Old Buckenham Country Park.
Video interviews with fellow wildlife enthusiasts, conservationists, experts and authors.

Anyone who knows me is all too aware about how I like to talk, especially about wildlife! So I have put some talks together.
