Simon King is a widely renowned wildlife filmmaker whose passion for the natural world is evident through his highly engaging and visually spectacular programmes. With over 30 years experience as a wildlife cameraman and presenter, Simon has developed a sound reputation as an expert in his field and has been the recipient of several prestigious awards including EMMY, BAFTA and RTS.

Simon’s most recent area of focus has been Scotland’s dramatic Shetland Isles, and his newfound enthusiasm for the area has led him to relocate to the Isles for a year with his family. His move and exploration was documented in the programme ‘Simon King’s Shetland Diaries’ which was broadcasted at prime time on BBC2 in 2010.

For 10 years we've campaigned, collected data and inspired people about our marine wildlife. Today, with 41 new protected areas designated around the country we reflect on the people who've helped make it happen @esmeefairbairn @DianaJohnsonMP @michaelastracha @PostcodeLottery

We are delighted that today the Government is designating a further 41 Marine Conservation Zones! These special places support the stunning diversity of marine life found in our seas 🐋🐟🦀🐚🐠🌊🦑🐙

Waiting now for photos to come. When they do I will share them if I can. Beavers bludgeoned to death. Shot horribly in the head. Suffering for some time then being killed later with a rifle. Their unborn offspring contorted in their wombs as their oxygen supply dwindled and died

St Catherine’s Valley in Bath traditionally had orchards. Now orchard trees are being replanted thanks to @CotswoldsAONB and our volunteer Pollinator Corridors team, connecting the landscape from hedgerow to copse. https://t.co/Doh75Hozzv

The Government is failing to protect our seas. We’re calling on @defragovuk, @daera_ni @marinescotland & @welshgovernment to act now. We need an ambitious Marine Strategy to protect the animals that live in our oceans. https://t.co/sy2nz47MLr 🐟🐬🐳🌊 #SeasOurFuture
