Tickets still available for illustrated talks by BBC wildlife photographer & film maker Dr Michael Leach, in aid of Careline

Some tickets are still available for Michael Leach’s illustrated talks on Thursday 30 April, at Abbotsholme School near Rocester.


The afternoon talk in the School’s library at 4pm entitled “Animals Behaving Badly” will give an insight into animal behaviour – sometimes learnt from their human counterparts! Meet drunken monkeys, psychotic magpies, hallucinating lemurs and larcenous orang-utans, amongst others.

The evening talk at 7pmin the Chapel, “Beneath the Dark Canopy” will reveal how rainforests work: the habitat of more than half of all known animal species. Michael will draw on his adventures in Borneo, the Amazon Basin and Central America to show how animals have evolved to live in this fragile, intricate environment. He will reveal his work with orang-utans, monkeys and river otters, to name just a few.

Michael has been a full time naturalist since 1977 and has travelled all round the world in search of subjects. He has been described as a “unique wildlife humourist”. His photos have been published in over 1000 books and he has filmed wildlife for BBC and ITV. Both talks will be illustrated by Michael’s wonderful slides.

Tickets for these fascinating talks are available from the Careline office, tel. 01335 210353; Natural Choice, Ashbourne; or John German Estate Agents, Uttoxeter; or online at Eventbrite.

Ticketprice (per talk): Adults £10, Under 16s £6, including light refreshments.
