A passion for wildlife and conservation…
Adrian has 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 from above 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 likes to celebrate British wildlife on our screens.
He has contributed work to various wildlife and environmental charities and causes including Chris Packham’s Peoples Walk For Wildlife, International Animal Rescue, Ape Alliance and the Jane Goodall Institute and is an ambassador for the Young People’s Trust for the Environment.
