Derek Gow (in conversation with Rob Meredith of ‘Friends of the Earth’)
21 May @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm£4
Derek Gow is a farmer, nature conservationist and the author of ‘Bringing Back the Beaver’ and ‘Birds, Beasts and Bedlam’.
Born in Dundee in 1965, he left school when he was 17 and worked in agriculture for five years. Inspired by the writing of Gerald Durrell, he jumped at the chance to manage a European wildlife park in central Scotland in the late 1990s before moving on to develop two nature centres in England.
He now lives on a 300-acre farm on the Devon/Cornwall border, which he is in the process of rewilding. Derek has played a significant role in the reintroduction of the Eurasian beaver, the water vole and the white stork in England. He is currently working on a reintroduction project for the wildcat and a book on our lost wolves.
