George Monbiot divides his time between writing for the Guardian and pursuing a number of quixotic projects: generally writing obscure books and campaigning for lost causes. His latest book is ‘Feral: Searching for Enchantment on the Frontiers of Rewilding.’

Anthony Rae adds: I’ve seen George Monbiot talk on the subject of Feral twice in the last year and it’s a most thought provoking account that challenges the orthodoxies of the conservation movement. You’ll learn why he really doesn’t like sheep, what’s the meaning of ‘trophic cascades‘, how the re-introduction of woves has reshaped the actual landscape of Yellowstone National Park, and what elephants have done to the hedgerows of Britain! But what does his message mean for Calderdale?
