Robin Hanbury-Tenison OBE, DL was recently described by the Spectator as the doyen of British explorers. Conservationist, broadcaster, film maker, author of over 20 books, lecturer, campaigner, farmer and, with his wife Louella, equestrian traveller par excellence, he is one of the few remaining British explorers who merits the name. He is a Gold Medallist of the Royal Geographical Society, a Founder and President of Survival International, the world's leading organisation supporting tribal peoples. Named as the greatest explorer by the Sunday Times, he has been on over 30 expeditions, including leading the Royal Geographical Society's largest expedition, taking 115 scientists to live for fifteen months in the interior of Borneo. This research and his book for adults, Mulu: the Rainforest, started the international concern for tropical rainforests.
