Story

Dear friends,

I'm really elated to have completed the London Marathon for WDCS in 4 hours 4 mins. A huge thank you to everyone who has already sponsored me, and there’s still time to make a donation if you haven’t already!

As a presenter and producer of wildlife films I have had the privilege of traveling around the world and seeing some of the planet’s most magnificent animals. Sadly, some of the UK’s most loved animals, the bottlenose dolphins of theMoray Firth, are now under serious threat. This small and vulnerable group of dolphins face many dangers, including the government potentially allowing oil and gas exploration inside a special sanctuary set up to protect them.

I want to do what I can to protect these animals, which is why I decided to run the London Marathon and raise as much money as I can to help WDCS in their campaign to Protect Our Dolphins. Please sponsor me now, or why not take up a challenge yourself to raise vital funds? Go to www.wdcs.org.uk for more information.



Many thanks.

Nigel
