To find out about his career and incredible wildlife adventures, along with a chance to win a copy of the book, head over to the book review.

Ever thought about volunteering to help wildlife sustain a better future? Well now you can do it from home! For our wildlife conservation feature this month, we shine the light on LEO Africa, a wildlife volunteer project, based in South Africa. Their work links ecology with the practical running of a National Park, and this provides a rewarding educational wildlife volunteer programme.
For our Global Awareness topic this month, we share your photos of snakes for World Snake Day (16th July). We encourage you to research this fascinating species and learn about their interesting ecology. You can also look up some herpetologists on Instagram and tag your photos with #WorldSnakeDay.
