In the Midst of Gorillas
Lisburn City Library presents In the Midst of Gorillas with wildlife photographer, cameraman and author Dr. Michael Leach.

For children aged 8 and older as well as adults

He has also worked extensively in television as a wildlife cameraman on more than 100 TV documentaries for both the BBC and ITV.

His work with animals has taken him all around the world and has included working with gorillas in central Africa, polar bears in the Arctic, sharks circling the Galapagos Islands and lions in Africa.

Hear Michael talk about his travels and, in particular, his time living and communicating with the mountain gorillas of Rwanda, the gentle, intelligent primates that we have pushed to the edge of extinction and how he used this experience to write his book The Great Apes - Faces in Nature’s Mirror.

Please ask in branch for full details and book via NI Science Festival​
