In conversation with Dominic Dyer (online talk)
About the event
Dominic became a wildlife protection campaigner after a career in government and industry using the skills he acquired in Whitehall, Brussels and the corporate board room to fight for the protection of animals and nature.
Dominic is one of the Britain's leading wildlife protection campaigners, writers and broadcasters. Unlike many conservationists, he became a wildlife protection campaigner after a career in government and industry using the skills he acquired in Whitehall, Brussels and the corporate board room to fight for the protection of animals and nature.
Dominic started working in the Ministry of Agriculture at 17 and during his career in Whitehall worked in wide range of policy areas in UK and Brussels ranging from marine environment protection to EU farming and trade policy. After a 20 year career working in Whitehall and Industry, Dominic turned his formidable communication skills and knowledge of how government works to become a voice for wildlife protection and animal welfare at home and abroad.
Today, Dominic is Policy Advisor & Wildlife Advocate at the Born Free Foundation and was CEO of Badger Trust from 2013 -2020. He is also Board member of Wildlife and Countryside Link and a Lay Member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, Veterinary Nurses Council. He is a regular speaker at wildlife protection protests, conferences and exhibitions and a contributor to the print and broadcast media on a wide range of issues ranging from the badger cull and trophy hunting, to the ivory trade and wildlife crime.
His first book "Badgered to Death The People and Politics of the Badger Cull" published in 2016 has been widely acclaimed and is now one of the best selling British wildlife books of recent years.
Commenting on the work of Dominic Dyer as a campaigner and author, Chris Packham said
"I am a great fan of Dominic Dyer. Like many others I am in awe of his passion, drive and commitment, of his motives and his profound determination to highlight injustice, resist apathy and campaign for wildlife protection"
