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.
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.
Whether it be talking to schools and visitors to Pensthorpe Natural Park, where I am the Wildlife Education Officer, family and friends or other like-minded people I meet.
I am hoping talk: Wildlife will provide me a platform for doing more of it.
Hope you enjoy the site. Allan
A series of videos introducing some of the wild places I visit and highlighting their merits.
Video interviews with fellow wildlife enthusiasts, conservationists, experts and authors.
For those of you who may be dipping your toe into a wildlife topic for the first time.
Not reviews as such, just an introduction to the wildlife books both new and those that have been around for years, that I have enjoyed.
Kruger National Park is one of the World’s top safari destinations. Hear about its merits and how to get the best from your visit.
Anyone who knows me is all too aware about how I like to talk, especially about wildlife! So I have put some talks together.
