About the Author

Hendrikus van Hensbergen has a BSc in Zoology from the University of Bristol, where he was awarded the Rose Bracher Memorial Prize, and an MSc in Biodiversity, Conservation & Management from the University of Oxford.

He is the CEO of youth environmental charity, Action for Conservation (AFC), which he founded in 2014, whilst working for WWF, after realising that no charities in the UK existed with the sole purpose of engaging young people in environmental action. In a short space of time the charity has become an influential force, driving greater action to engage and involve young people across the environmental sector. In 2018 Hendrikus' inspirational leadership was recognised with a Postcode Trust Rising Star Award and in 2019 the charity launched the world's largest youth-led nature restoration initiative in Wales.

Robert Macfarlane is the bestselling author of Mountains of the Mind, The Wild Places, The Old Ways, Landmarks, and Underland, and co-creator of The Lost Words and The Lost Spells. Mountains of the Mind won the Guardian First Book Award and the Somerset Maugham Award and The Wild Places won the Boardman-Tasker Award. Both books have been adapted for television by the BBC. The Lost Words won the Books Are My Bag Beautiful Book Award and the Hay Festival Book of the Year. Robert Macfarlane is a Fellow of Emmanuel College, Cambridge, and writes on environmentalism, literature and travel for publications including the Guardian, the Sunday Times and The New York Times. He is now working on his third book with long-time collaborator, Jackie Morris: The Book of Birds.
