Directing Wildlife Videos with Will Fox, On Track Safari’s: 1.00pm - 1.45pm, 5 November 2017
Speaking on Sunday 5 November 2017
Wildlife conservationist and filmmaker Will Fox is originally from Yorkshire, but has worked in big cat conservation in Africa for the last fifteen years. During that time he has also produced and directed many wildlife safari television shows, often broadcast LIVE from the African bush, where his knowledge of big cat behavior has enabled worldwide audiences to be immersed in the action as it happens.
Will has had a lifelong passion to protect wildlife and is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and a visiting Research Fellow at Reading University.
He founded the INGWE Leopard Research program in 2004, which works to conserve and protect leopards in South Africa. He has also travelled extensively throughout the continent where his skills in wildlife capture have helped with Lion, Leopard, Cheetah and Hyena conservation and research projects.
Will believes that tourism and conservation must work hand in hand to support each other and so in 2007 he created On Track Safaris. Since 2007 OTS has gone on to win awards for its work in conservation with profits being used to support wildlife conservation and community education programs in Africa.
