Event Description

Face of The One Show and probably the most widely watched wildlife presenter on TV today, Mike Dilger will be embarking on a very special mission for WWT in January 2013. Kind of like a cross between running seven marathons on seven continents in seven days and seeing the ‘big five’ African safari animals, but with a bit of birding thrown in, the Big 9 Challenge will see Mike visit all nine WWT centres across the UK in just nine days.

As well as taking in some of the UK’s best winter wildlife spectacles, he will undertake a wildlife challenge and host an evening talk at a different WWT centre each day. Along the way he will be raising money for the spoon-billed sandpiper conservation breeding programme.

Mike’s talk, ‘The Trials and Tribulations of a TV Naturalist’, is an informative, entertaining and, in places, hilarious rollercoaster of a ride revealing everything you wanted to know about filming wildlife and writing nature books, but were afraid to ask.

Featuring fabulous clips from some of his best-known programmes and readings from his current book ‘My Garden and Other Animals’ the evening promises to be a celebration of both British wildlife and the work of the WWT both at home and abroad.

Booking essential - please call 020 8409 4400.
