Wildlife biologist and presenter
Lizzie is a regular face on CBBC, Cbeebies and has worked on various BBC productions and National Geographic. She was the resident wildlife expert on The Lets Go Club on Cbeebies and is also a presenter for BBC Earth Unplugged. Most recently Lizzie featured alongside her peers on a BBC TWO’s Curious Creatures which continues for a second series this Summer.
A life-long curiosity for the natural world has led her to conduct academic research and make wildlife films all over the world. Lizzie graduated from the University of Exeter with a BSc in Animal Behaviour before heading straight to Bristol University to complete an MSc in electroreception of arthropods. Her love of nature has taken her all over the world to film a variety of wildlife including brown bears and wolverines in Sweden, short finned pilot whales in North Africa and 10ft alligators at night in Florida.
Lizzie has recently returned from two months in Kenya where she was looking at elephant-human conflict. Whilst on the ground Lizzie produced, directed and presented a 10-part online series for the conservation charity Space For Giants which will be out in April 2018. Lizzie hopes to continue her research investigating African elephant behaviour and human to elephant conflict management.
Lizzie is an accomplished speaker and frequently talks at the main science festivals; most recently the Swansea Science Festival, Norwich Science Festival, Wild Film Fest, The Bristol Festival of Nature and The Big Bang Fair. From family shows on wild adaptations to evening talks on weird animal sex, Lizzie has a variety of talks up her sleeve.
Lizzie is a conservationist with a fierce passion to care for our oceans and protect our wild spaces. She is an ambassador for the Marine Conservation Society and for the Jane Goodall Institute UK.
