Dr Mark Evans is a vet, science explorer and petrol head.
The former RSPCA chief veterinary advisor is a well-known animal expert and natural history presenter on both sides of the Atlantic.
A DIY enthusiast and accomplished mechanic, Mark has also fronted over 100 hit engineering shows; even building his own helicopter!
His colourful TV career has seen him dissecting a polar bear on the Arctic sea ice; meeting the 7ft, 20 stone Russian ex-boxer, Nikola Valuev for a spot of Yeti hunting; and was one of the exclusive few to see the Jaguar’s ‘missing six’ E-type cars to be hand-made.
Not surprisingly, he’s been in some scrapes, including a fracas with a crocodile – and has the scars to prove it!
For over 20 years, Mark has presented, created and produced documentaries and live interactive shows covering a wide range of subjects.
He’s broadcasted worldwide for the BBC, Channel 4, Discovery Channel and the American PBS channel.
Along with fronting BAFTA-winning shows, Mark is also a highly respected animal welfare campaigner.
Mark Evans – Guest Speaker:
Mark has lots of stories to tell… he’s tracked giant pythons in the Everglades; sat next to a dead hippo in Zambia for ten days to see what ate it; entered the breakaway republic of Abkhazia against Foreign Office advice; dissected an elephant in front of a live audience; and even built a helicopter, amongst other assorted macho machines.
With unrivalled knowledge and enthusiasm, as a guest speaker, Mark is hugely engaging and relays his encounters and experiences with gusto.
Whether he’s streaming live footage from Zambia or generating Channel 4’s second biggest web traffic surge with a mega egg-hatchery in Eggs Live, what makes Mark so compelling is that he’s like the next-door neighbour you’d love to have.
Dr Mark Evans is available as a guest speaker, presenter and awards host.
