Wildlife television presenter, Hayden Turner has hosted programmes on National Geographic and the Discovery Channel, reporting from some of the wildest and most scenic places on earth.

Prior to working in television, Hayden was a zoo keeper for Taronga Zoo in Sydney, and has spent nearly 20 years working with animals and travelling extensively throughout the world.

Hayden recently spoke at our annual Aberdeen Ladies' Lunch about his personal connection to the charity and his family’s experience of pregnancy complications and premature birth, as well as his safari adventures across the globe. Janet Balcombe, Community Fundraising Manager for Action Medical Research Scotland, said: “Hayden is a fabulous ambassador for the charity, sharing his personal experience of why medical research is so important.”
