The biggest single day had an estimated 14,000 people turn out, and over the last few years Steve has talked live to over 300,000. This year Steve is looking forward to another national tour ‘Steve Backshall’s Wild World’ in October/November talking about his fascinating life around the world and the animals he’s encountered along the way.

His extreme adventures include being part of the BBC’s ‘Lost Land of the Tiger’, ‘Lost Land of the Volcano’ and ‘Lost Land of the Jaguar’. Backshall made the first descent into an unexplored sinkhole for BBC One’s Emmy-nominated epic ‘Expedition Borneo’, and trekked into the heart of America’s most inhospitable terrain for Discovery’s ‘Expedition Alaska’. Closer to home, Steve Backshall has presented Britain’s ‘Lost World’, ‘Extreme Caving’, ‘Inside Out’, ‘The One Show’, ‘The Nature of Britain’, and ‘The Really Wild Show’ for CBBC.
