Work together

Working for wildlife and wild places

Throughout my work I share stories that inspire people to look more closely at our natural world.

Through creating visually compelling publications and interpretative exhibitions, each holding the vision of sharing stories about wildlife and our relationships with nature, I share a message of connection to the extraordinary living world around us.

Our world is in desperate need of committed individuals who will take an active role in saving wilderness. This book by Belinda Ashton will I am sure spark the desire to help the cause of wilderness. Laurens van der Post would have loved this book because it has the right feel.”

My ‘Wilderness Visionaries’ exhibition was created in collaboration with Vance Martin of The WILD Foundation in the US. It was launched at the WILD9 World Wilderness Congress in Merida, Mexico.
‘I have known the Ashton’s for many years and have always admired their intimate knowledge of the region, their passion for its wonderful whales and dolphins, and their remarkable efforts to drum up urgently needed support for conservation efforts to look after them.’ Mark Carwardine
