Ian is a tropical field biologist and conservationist, renowned for his work with great apes and elephants; he has been a wildlife consultant with Born Free since 1986.
Having authored books, articles, reports and scientific papers Ian is currently part of a team developing virtual reality as a tool for conservation education.
In tropical forests, where between 75-95% of tree species have their seeds dispersed by animals, rather than by wind or water, the loss of fruit-eating animals would have a catastrophic impact …fewer frugivorous animals, fewer seedlings growing into the trees of tomorrow.
“I am a naturalist by birth, a biologist by training, and a conservationist by necessity”.
Delve into the past 40 years of Ian’s international career and the species and individuals he has encountered along the way.
