One of TV’s busiest presenters, wildlife expert Steve Backshall is also an inspirational public speaker who enthrals audiences with illuminating talks on a range of wildlife and conservation-related issues, as well recounting numerous explorations and adventures conducted across the world. Steve is Vice President of both The Wildlife Trusts and Buglife, and is also a patron of The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust, London Wildaid and The Exotic Pet Refuge.
TV work includes fronting the CBBC Deadly series, travelling the world to film episodes that delight – and sometimes terrify! – youngsters as he encounters extraordinary and awe-inspiring predators. Steve’s adventures have also featured on the BBC's Lost Land series - Lost Land of the Tiger, Lost Land of the Volcano and Lost Land of the Jaguar. He has also descended into an unexplored sinkhole for BBC One's Emmy-nominated epic Expedition Borneo, and trekked into the heart of America’s most inhospitable terrain for Discovery Channel's Expedition Alaska.
Steve is a prolific author, having published thirteen books. His adventure fiction series called the Falcon Chronicles so far comprises three novels for young adults: Tiger Wars, Ghosts of the Forest and Wilds of the Wolf. He has also produced non-fiction.
Steve is ideal as a host at events with a wildlife, nature or scientific theme, and is also a compelling Motivational and After Dinner Speaker, regaling audiences with his exciting adventures and explorations across the world.
