Megan is a zoologist, award-winning photographer and presenter of BBC TV’s Springwatch series.
Having travelled the world from a young age, Megan has lived in remote areas and worked with researchers and organisations around the world, from rehabilitating in China to researching the personalities of sharks in the Bahamas. A keen wildlife photographer, Megan won the under 12’s RSPCA’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year Award in 2007 and was appointed coordinator and judge of the Young Bird Photographer of the Year competition in 2019.
One of her first TV roles was as a reporter on Undercover Tourist: Inside the Illegal Bear Bile Market for BBC3. She then became a wildlife researcher and presenter exposing environmental issues and illegal wildlife persecution. Megan has reported on plastic pollution and Extinction Rebellion for Al Jezeera’s award winning environmental series Earthrise and recently presented the Self Isolating Bird Club and BBC Winterwatch with Chris Packham, with whom she co-wrote Back to Nature; How to Love Life – and Save It, published in November 2020.
Megan hopes to raise awareness of the plight of species around the world and to educate others about the wonders of the planet.
Ed Stafford is a former British Army captain who, in 2010, became the first human to walk the entire length of the Amazon River, and raised funds for Rainforest Concern. His feat took him 860 days and earned him a place in the Guinness Book of Records.
Ed is now a presenter and adventurer on the Discovery Channel. He is also the author of "Walking the Amazon" and "Naked and Marooned"
Mike Dilger has been an obsessive naturalist since childhood, equally at home either on his hands and knees identifying British grasshoppers or surveying the Amazon for hummingbirds. With university degrees in Botany and Ecology, Mike’s obsession with the tropics began when studying moths in the Ecuadorian Andes. This then led to a period of five years spent surveying the tropical forests of South America, East Africa and Southeast Asia, including fifteen months as the Resident Biologist at the Maquipucuna Cloud Forest Reserve in Ecuador for Rainforest Concern.
Finally emerging out of the bush and returning back to Britain to find a job in television, Mike has become a household onscreen figure and is probably best known for over 450 appearances as BBC1’s ‘wild man’ on The One Show.
