Treasures of Cambodia's Rainforests

Talk, 7-8pm. Great North Museum:Hancock.

Cambodia’s rainforests hold some of the most remarkable and rarest creatures on the planet, as well as a lot of leeches! For 3 months at the end of 2013 Will Nicholls will be undertaking a solo expedition to explore protected scientific sites within the rainforest. He hopes to see and capture on film animals ranging from the endangered Red-shanked Douc Langur to the critically endangered Bengal Florican. Assuming he returns alive, this illustrated talk will feature images from the expedition and describe the efforts and techniques in tracking down and filming wildlife in such a challenging environment.

Will Nicholls is a young award-winning wildlife photographer from Northumberland and an aspiring natural history presenter and filmmaker. In 2009 he won the Young British Wildlife Photographer of the Year Award.
