A passion for wildlife and conservation…
Adrian is a naturalist with a lifelong passion and broad knowledge of natural history. He has spent weeks raising butterflies to film their life cycle, leapt into the unknown covered in biting driver ants, swum with seals and dressed up as a giant panda to blend in! Adrian has also been pooped on by disgruntled monkeys, run over filming wildlife exploitation, charged by elephants, slept with a deadly puff adder, and shower-danced with scorpions. He has been confronted in the middle of the night by an armed hunter, exposed illegal bush meat trade in South America and emptied venomous spiders from his boots. Closer to home Adrian has a real penchant for British wildlife.
He has contributed work for wildlife and conservation organisations including the Jane Goodall Institute, Ape Alliance and International Animal Rescue, and is one of the presidents of the Young People’s Trust for the Environment.
