Presentation
In “Around the World in Eighty Days”, Jules Verne’s character, Phileas Fogg, took eighty days to circumnavigate the world. In this lecture, we will spend eighty minutes (or thereabouts !!) on a similar journey travelling around the world visiting some amazing destinations for birds and wildlife. These include locations as diverse as Antarctica, Papua New Guinea, New Caledonia, Pitcairn Island and Guyana with some stunning shots of the incredible birdlife which inhabit these remote locations.

Biography
I am a freelance ornithologist and for the last 10 years have been working on a wide range of bird and wildlife related projects around the world. Most of my work involves guiding groups of birders and wildlife enthusiasts to destinations as diverse as the Russian Far East, Antarctica, South America and Pacific Ocean. I have spent the equivalent of over three years working on expedition ships and have seen almost 90% of the world’s seabirds and a total of well over 5,000 bird species. In addition to tour guiding, I regularly give lectures to groups in the UK and overseas and also work on consultancy projects offering advice to governments and agencies on growing a location as a birding destination.
