Whether you have a passion for big cats, elephants or the rich avian delights, this talk is sure to get the taste buds tingling.
Speaker: Bret Charman
Bret Charman is an award-winning wildlife photographer and a member of the Marketing team at The Travelling Naturalist. It is the fantastic flora and fauna around Winchester that inspired his love affair with the natural world. He thrives on discovering what’s happening on his local patch, as well as in those more exotic locations a little further afield.
On a recent visit to Mexico's Baja Peninsula, Helen’s expectations were blown out of the water by the incredible wildlife on offer. From leaping dolphins, somersaulting mobulas and flying fish, to more breaching humpbacks than you could shake a stick at! This marine mammal extravaganza has left an indelible impression, and describing the sheer and utter brilliance of her trip is Helen’s mission for the evening.
