The Third Douglas Adams Memorial Lecture - LAST CHANCE TO SEE...JUST A BIT MORE

Zoologist Mark Carwardine will be giving the Third Douglas Adams Memorial Lecture in celebration of the life and universe of Douglas Adams. All profits are split between the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund and Save the Rhino International.


Zoologist Mark Carwardine (co-author of Last Chance to See with Douglas Adams) spends more than half the year travelling the world in search of wildlife and exploring wild places - writing books and articles, researching for his monthly columns in BBC Wildlife, Wanderlust and
Diver magazines, making programmes for BBC Radio 4, taking photographs, leading tours and advising on conservation projects. From working with Inuit hunters to find walruses and photographing blue whales from the open door of a small plane to snorkelling with feeding killer whales and cage-diving with great white sharks, he encounters more wildlife in a year than most people dream of encountering in a lifetime. Along the way, he's been shot at by drunken policeman in Zambia, mugged by a gang of drug addicts in New York and ambushed by bandits in Tanzania; he has stayed in a hotel-cum-brothel in Mali and been thrown into jail in Moscow; and he's been bitten by everything from a venomous spider in
Australia to an elephant trunk snake in Basingstoke. In this highly entertaining lecture he describes some of his experiences and
encounters with wild animals and even wilder people around the world - including some hilarious behind-the-scenes stories from Last Chance to See. And, inevitably, he has a thing or two to say about the state of the world.
