Join Mark Carwardine for a highly entertaining and enlightening romp around the world as he describes his extraordinary efforts - some successful, some not – to photograph a motley collection of wildlife.
He will talk about his adventures and experiences with everything from Amazon river dolphins and blue whales to great white sharks and Sumatran rhinos. And, inevitably, he'll have a thing or two to say about the state of the world along the way.
Sponsored by the Friends of Bristol Museums, Galleries & Archives.
