Monty is a conservationist, an explorer and a well-known TV presenter, who as a young boy was inspired by Gerald Durrell’s vision to protect and save the natural world.
Monty was invited to become an ambassador to Durrell in 2018 and has spoken at the Trust's annual Durrell Lecture in 2019 as well as hosted the Wilderness Ball the same year.
“Gerald Durrell set me on my way as a young naturalist, with his books creating the spark that ignited my career in conservation” said Monty. “To be asked to be an Ambassador for the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust is a huge honour – I have witnessed their work around the world, their dedication, drive, and genuine impact. I look forward to representing what I believe is one of the most forward-thinking and innovative of all conservation organisations, one that honours the memory of the man himself.”
