Wildlife expert Chris Packham to give free public lecture
Chris Packham TV presenter and naturalist Chris Packham will be sharing his experiences and career highlights in an inaugural public lecture as newly appointed Visiting Professor at the University of Lincoln, UK.

The award-winning conservationist, photographer and environmental campaigner will present his talk at the University’s Engine Shed at 3pm on Tuesday, 14th April.

Chris will also return on Wednesday, September 30th to give a second talk as part of the University’s Great Minds lecture series.

As a Visiting Professor, Chris will deliver lectures and workshops to students from a range of science subjects, including Biology, Animal Behaviour and Welfare, Zoology, Biomedical and Bioveterinary Science, Photography and Media Production, sharing his expertise and insights on wildlife conservation. He will bring his passion, knowledge and enthusiasm for wildlife to the classroom, challenging students to think differently about the ethical and practical considerations of conservation.

Chris is a familiar face on UK television screens from a broadcasting career presenting popular wildlife programmes such as the Really Wild Show, Springwatch, Autumnwatch and Secrets of our Living Planet.

In 2010 Chris was awarded the Dilys Breese BTO Medal for ‘his outstanding work in promoting science to new audiences’ and he is an enthusiastic supporter of many wildlife, conservation or environmental charities. He ran the hugely successful production company ‘Head over Heels‘ making programmes for Animal Planet, National Geographic, ITV and the BBC.
