Rhett Butler: Giving A Danum

Named after an iconic movie character, in real-life he's more like Indiana Jones!

Released on February 15, 2013

He’s been charged by elephants, black-listed by the Malaysian government, caught-up in tribal warfare in New Guinea and been bitten, stung and infected by creatures still unknown to science. Tonight, Rhett Butler (yes, that really is his name and no, we’re not afraid to go there) talks to us.

Rhett is the founder of mongabay.com, one of the web’s most popular and influential environmental websites. It receives over two million hits per year, funding Rhett’s impressive travels through banner ads, consultancy work and selling his stunning nature photography on-line.

His passion is protecting endemic wildlife in the places where it’s most diverse. However, because those places are shrinking under the pressure of an expanding global marketplace, these days people like Rhett no longer talk about protecting the jungles of Borneo (or the rainforests of Eastern Madagascar). They talk about protecting the Danum Valley (or the Masoala peninsula).

Inspiring stuff. Join us.

Presented by Peter Cox, Ali Gardiner, Dave Bartram and Ian Winn.
