RSPB search for young nature presenter 2018

Do you know a young person age 10-16 with a passion for nature who would like to go on location and present an amazing film all about wildlife?

The RSPB are calling for submissions to The Cairngorms Nature Young Presenter competition 2018 which is now open to any young person who loves wildlife and can inspire other young people to get involved with caring about nature too.

Alex Bailey is the current Cairngorms Nature Young Presenter and won the competition last year when he uploaded his short film about why he wanted to be a nature presenter.

Alex won a trip to the Cairngorms National Park with his family for a spectacular wildlife watching holiday and got to see golden eagles, pine martens and ospreys. As part of his prize, Alex also got to spend a day with BBC nature presenter Iolo Williams, picking up tips and making a short film about Cairngorms Nature.

He also got to go out and about with one of Speyside Wildlife’s expert guides looking for the birds and animals of the mountains, forests and moors.

Alex said, “My trip to the Cairngorms has been invaluable. I have learnt so much about the Cairngorms and the endangered species that it treasures such as capercaillie and pine marten. I feel very fortunate to have been able to meet fantastic conservationists and presenters like Stuart Benn and Iolo Williams and spend time with them. Duncan was our amazing Speyside Wildlife guide and made the trip very special. I have loved presenting Cairngorms Nature and I strongly recommend that you enter for 2018 and who knows, you may be the winner!”

If you love nature and would like to win this prize, then it’s really easy to enter. Visit the RSPB website for more information here  Closing date 31st October 2017.
