Come to an evening with OneKind and guest speaker, multi-award winning wildlife photographer Andrew Parkinson. Andrew is regarded as one of the worlds’ most ethical wildlife photographers, managing to capture aspects of behaviour seldom seen before, let alone photographed. Andrew’s passion for wildlife is only exceeded by his skill as a photographer - demonstrated by his many awards and his work for the BBC Wildlife and National Geographic magazine amongst other prestigious clients. There will be a chance to learn more about Andrew’s experience of photographing some of the country's most magnificent wildlife and the challenges he comes across.
Over the last 18 months, OneKind has been stepping up it’s efforts to defend Scotland’s wildlife. You’ll hear more about why this is so necessary and what OneKind’s future plans are from Harry Huyton, OneKind’s Director. Harry is a veteran campaigner with a passion for wildlife and will be there to answer any and all of your questions. Libby Anderson, OneKind’s Policy Adviser, will also be talking about one of our longer-term campaigns that has delivered big steps forward in wildlife protection. Libby is one of the most experienced animal advocates in Scotland and will also be there to take your questions and discuss what’s next.
The evening will end in a Q&A giving you the opportunity to ask any burning questions relating to wildlife photography, wildlife or the work of OneKind.
There will also be an exhibition of paintings of Scottish wildlife by a number of award-winning Scottish artists.
