Kevin Hand has been leading wildlife study tours all over the world for 30 years, mainly for the educational charity ACE (Association for Cultural Exchange). As well as looking at ecology, landscapes, flora and fauna, Kevin has always been keen to work with local people, particularly indigenous communities. For some years he has led tours beyond the Arctic Circle in Finland and Norway with Sami guides, studying their history and their past and current relationships with reindeer and other wildlife, and how this is affected by climate change. He will illustrate some of his experiences in the stunning taiga and tundra landscapes, in a talk that is very appropriate for December.
