A botanist by training, Michael has a wide interest in all natural history. He is a freelance writer and broadcaster, and former Deputy Chair of Scottish Natural Heritage, the Scottish Government conservation agency. His books include Scottish Wild Flowers and the Young Oxford Book of Ecology, and he contributed to Oceans and The Natural History Book (Dorling Kindersley). He is a regular contributor to Saving Species and The Living World on BBC Radio 4. He spends as much time as he can on cruise ships and is happiest on deck with his wife Sue, spotting seabirds, whales and dolphins and chatting with the passengers. He was awarded the OBE in 2005 “for services to biodiversity conservation in Scotland”.
|Expedition Staff (whether or not advertised
in our brochures) are usually booked many months in advance
of the holiday and sometimes they become unavailable, even at
very short notice. If this happens, we will always do our best
to make suitable alternative arrangements but any such change
shall not be regarded as a major change and we cannot be held
liable or responsible in these circumstances.
