A podcast interview with Radio Wolfgang.
I first attended Explore as a green, keen, undergraduate. It was one of the best things I ever did, and I'm very luck now to call some of the regular attendees my friends. This year - the 40th anniversary! - I was chuffed to be asked to give a Friday night lecture.
I'm an optimist, so I try to make sure when I give talks on conservation, that there is a healthy mix of depressing reality and hope for the future. Unsurprisingly audiences don't really enjoy leaving thoroughly depressed.
My personal highlights included the whirlwind tour of all the things we don't know from Sam Jones (for example, the Nechisar nightjar known from only a single wing!).
I believe strongly that good, optimistic and honest story telling, is the way to peoples hearts with conservation. So here are a few worth watching if you have the time.
