I have just returned from a couple of wonderful days at this years British Birdwatching Fair in Rutland. It was my first time there as an speaker after many years going as a visitor and an exhibitor back in 2010. I was invited there by the fair itself to do my talk “Conservation with a Camera” The talk covered how I use my camera too help wildlife here in the UK and around the world. My talk went down really well I thought with lots of interest and questions from the audience afterwards.
After a few days in a specially built holding area the door was pulled back and a family of captive born Pygmy Hogs took their first steps into the wild. They paused for a moment, then the adult male led them all out. This was the image that captured that moment I still remember fondly from last May in Assam, India. Critically endangered in the wild this breeding program is trying to ensure these wonderful and enduring Pygmy Hogs don’t go extinct.
I’ve just returned from Ovar, near Porto in Portugal where I did 3 days of talks about some of my conservation work I do at the Amigos do Cáster Festival – AMBID 2016. It is one of most important Conservation and Nature Photography Festivals in Portugal.
I’m pleased to announce that I’ve been invited to the Green Party of England and Wales exhibition in London at Hoxton Arches. I will be giving a talk and presentation on Tuesday the 18th of October during the private viewing & auction evening.
