Over the last 25 years Toby has travelled across every continent, from crossing the Sahara with camels to sailing to the Galapagos, from the Himalayas to the ice caves on the peak of mount Erebus in Antarctica.
Having seen the beauty of this world but also its demise, Toby cares very deeply and his talk will be full of passion, extraordinary tales, humour, and heart.
Toby Strong is a multi-Emmy and BAFTA award winning wildlife cameraman.
For the last 25 years Toby has travelled to every continent and most environments on Earth, and has worked on most of the BBC’s landmark series over the past two decades.
From Toby’s beginnings in a small English village, we follow his unique and amazing life to the four wild corners of the world, and his encounters with incredible animals and incredible people. He has walked with elephants, bears and gorillas, stolen the kill from a lion pride with the Dorobo tribe, stood with Sir David Attenborough next to the last two northern white rhinos, and faced more deadly snakes than is healthy.
Now, Toby’s life is focused more and more on the challenges facing us. He has witnessed the vast ice melts in Antarctica and Greenland, stood on the Tibetan border and seen the great glaciers vanishing, and spoken with sea gypsies and Madagascan fishermen who have seen their oceans wiped clean, and Mongolian herders who have lost their livestock to climate change because of our actions on the other side of the globe. He has flown over the endless palm oil plantations of Indonesia and stood up to his waist in the great landfill sites of east Africa. This now drives his life.
His most recent project, Earthshot Prize, saw him working with Sir David Attenborough and Prince William on a series that looks to halt and solve our great problems.
