Evening Talk: My Diseases and Other Animals by Mike Dilger

An illustrated evening talk by TV Wildlife presenter Mike Dilger

My Diseases and Other Animals is a whistle-stop tour around the world in fifty minutes. This illuminating, fun and yet informative lecture, recounts Mike's travels over three continents while working as a research biologist in the world's tropical forests. In addition to spending long periods in the back-of-beyond, which included encounters with both remote tribes and rare wildlife, he also managed to accumulate an impressive array of diseases such as malaria, leishmaniasis and ringworm - earning him the nick-name of ‘Britain's most diseased man'. However, his talk is much more than just about bilharzia and botflies, as Mike also talks passionately about a number of the very real and current problems in conserving some of the world's most important biodiversity hotspots.
