Chris Packham: fighting for the wild

From Saturday Morning, 8:10 am on 10 February 2024


British naturalist, broadcaster and environmental campaigner Chris Packham has been hailed as David Attenborough's successor.

He began his broadcasting career on The Really Wild Show in the 1980s, and more recently has presented Springwatch for the BBC.

He's found fans and made enemies with his vocal stance on environmental and ecological causes including opposing fox hunting.

Recently he launched a legal challenge against the UK government over its plan to water down carbon commitments.
