We invite you to celebrate the unique talent of Douglas Adams. Join us (and many other Douglas fans!) to commemorate Douglas’ conservation exploits and his book ‘Last Chance to See’, co-written by Mark Carwardine.
Douglas was a founder patron of our charity. He once joined us for a climb up Mount Kilimanjaro in a rhino costume and even writes about it in The Salmon of Doubt. This year would have been Douglas’ 70th birthday, and we’re celebrating the best way we know; a live event with talks from speakers that we’re sure Douglas would have loved. This year’s lecture will be given by Professor E.J. Milner-Gulland from the University of Oxford, and the event will be hosted by comedian, podcaster and Douglas Adams fan, Rachel Wheeley.
Join us at 19:00 (GMT+1) on Thursday 26 May 2022 at the Royal Geographic Society in London, to hear incredible speakers and honour Douglas.
