Day 1 Keynote: Tim Scoones

Tim Scoones has been a passionate naturalist and conservationist since he was a child.  

Originally trained as a biologist at Oxford University, Tim spent 25 years making Emmy and BAFTA award-winning natural history documentaries and digital content, with 18 years as an Executive Producer at the world-renowned BBC Natural History Unit

Tim was one of the BBC’s early pioneers in live and digital broadcasting, working with a large coalition of science and conservation NGOs to vastly increase the public engagement and conservation impact potential of the BBC’s output, not least via his much-loved returning multi-platform brand Springwatch

Tim has now returned to the conservation front line – a freelance consultant in conservation, media innovation and public engagement, Tim leads innovative and impactful media-led campaigns with a range of conservation organisations including the Blue Marine Foundation.
