About the Author

Nick Baker is simply a naturalist. His life-long passion and natural curiosity for anything living has led to a varied career as a field biologist, broadcaster and communicator of natural history. Nick has over twenty years’ experience hosting shows for the BBC, National Geographic and Discovery, including Springwatch, Weird Creatures and Ultimate Explorer. He has also authored ten books on the subject of wildlife and natural history. Nick is a strong believer in the fact you can’t protect what you don’t value or connect with, and so, to this day he continues in whatever way he can to help others rediscover a natural empathy with the wild world.
