Nick Acheson lives where he grew up, in North Norfolk. For ten years he lived in South America, working with conservation NGOs such as WWF and Wetlands International. He has also spent three years in Asia and has worked with wildlife on every continent. A conservationist by passion and commitment, since his return to the UK he has worked for Norfolk Wildlife Trust, The Wildlife Trusts and the Hawk and Owl Trust. Having crossed the globe in search of wildlife, he is equally at home spotlighting in a Bornean rainforest, watching walruses from zodiacs in the arctic, shedding tears over the song of Madagascar's indris, or snug in the Norfolk flint cottage he shares with a three-legged lurcher and a rescued flock of hens.
