“I never really had a choice. I tried to do banking for a little while, and I found it interesting.. but for me, I’m so obsessed with the natural world. I enjoy being surrounded by all forms of life and I want to ensure that that’s there for my children and their children.” – Dr Jonathan Baillie
P.S. Sir David Attenborough gave seven EDGE species a place on his ark, you can vote for your favourite here or read about the 10 species I’d smuggle on board.
