In addition, his work as an international ‘observer’ of sustainable tourism operations for the International Association of Antarctic Tour Operators (IAATO) in Antarctica has generated a number of media opportunities.

In 2011 & 2012, he was runner-up in the quiz ‘Celebrity Wild Brain of Britain’. He is a very keen birdwatcher and conservation figure.
