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.

Hi all! Just about to do a live Facebook broadcast. Join me if you can!

In case you were in any doubt...

Check out these ‘how to’ vids that reveal some of the fabulous features of the Zeiss Harpia spotting scope https://www.youtube.com/user/zeissnature/videos

This is interesting - @WildJustice_org challenging the government over why it has licensed a new supplementary #badgercull before responding to the Godfray Review that it commissioned, which calls for this approach to be replaced by a trial of vaccination. https://twitter.com/WildJustice_org/status/1177874365792342016

Last night, Sir David Attenborough delivered a message to our World Leaders at WWF’s event at the #ClimateActionSummit. The message is loud and clear – we need global action on our nature and #ClimateEmergency.

Always excellent to hear about successful vaccination programmes! #ProjectVaccinate #CanTheCull

Really looking forward to seeing you all at https://birdfair.org.uk/ this coming Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I’ll be there all 3 days giving talks on each and enjoying the company of like-minded folk. Oh, and looking out for ospreys on the cruises I’m hosting

It’s official the French start shooting #curlews on the coast from tomorrow. These could be birds from the UK, from Poland, Finland or Netherlands. All endangered populations. Some of us have written to the French minister but no reply. How can this be acceptable?

Please do what you can to support this appeal. https://www.somersetwildlife.org/westhayappeal Every square meter of the levels that is allowed to thrive with nature’s bounty is a gift to us all.

Really looking forward to meeting folk at the @nationaltrust theatre @Countryfilelive at 16.00 today. I’ll be talking about working with the planet’s most charismatic predators. And other stuff! Come and join us!
