Zoologist Mark Carwardine is an outspoken conservationist, an award-winning writer, a TV and radio presenter, a widely-published wildlife photographer, a best-selling author, a wildlife tour operator and leader, a lecturer, and a magazine columnist. He presented Last Chance to See, a popular six-part BBC-TV series with actor and comedian Stephen Fry (based on a book he wrote with Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, 20 years earlier). He also presented the weekly half-hour programme Nature, among others on BBC Radio 4 for many years. He has written more than 50 books, including best-selling field guides to whales, dolphins and porpoises. Mark Carwardine has an extensive collection of wildlife, nature and environment photographs taken in more than a hundred countries. He has been widely credited with turning Iceland and other whaling nations, from killing whales to whale watching instead – and therefore wholly understands the nature of tourism and his similar understanding of the TOFTigers approach.
