James Lowen has been immersed in all aspects of natural history since he was able to walk, encouraging him to moult into a fully fledged wildlife writer, editor, guide, consultant and photographer. Upon his return to Britain from several years leading wildlife tours in South America and Antarctica (which resulted in his books Pantanal wildlife and Antarctic wildlife), James had an irrepressible desire to renew his relationship with British nature.
The result was James's next three books: 52 wildlife weekends,
James's speciality is bringing nature to life for the non-specialist. In June 2016, he guested on BBC Springwatch Unsprung. In September 2016, he was on BBC Countryfile.
