AGM with Speaker Benedict Macdonald

Indoor Events
Date: 22 September 2021 19:30

Venue: AGM via Zoom

The AGM will be held via Zoom. 

Following the short formal business of the AGM this years keynote speaker will be Benedict Macdonald speaking on one of the topics at the forefront of current conservation debate – REWILDING.

Ben is an award-winning television director, nature writer and conservationist. Having studied wildlife from a very early age, he pursued a career in natural history film-making and has worked on series including The One Show, Springwatch, The Hunt and as a field director for the Emmy-award winning Our Planet, a conservation series narrated by Sir David Attenborough which premiered on Netflix in 2019. Since then, Ben has worked as a producer on international wildlife shows for Apple, including their recent releases, Tiny Worlds & Earth at Night. He currently works for Disney.

As a writer, his first book, Rebirding, written over five years, highlighted the need for mass-scale nature restoration across the UK and was the winner of the Richard Jefferies Prize and inaugural winner of the Wainwright Conservation Prize 2020.

As a conservationist, Ben has remained at the forefront of public discourse on rewilding, nature restoration, regenerative farming and the widespread reintroduction of lost species to the UK – including beavers and pelicans. Ben lives and works in Bristol. He is affiliated to a number of organisations including the RSPB, Wildlife Trusts, National Trust, Beaver Trust, Rewilding Britain and his own organisation, Restore.
