Bill Oddie and Mark Avery, both Council members of World Land Trust (WLT), were guest speakers at BlogStock, the world’s first blogging festival.

Bill is one of Britain’s best loved wildlife television presenters and a passionate ornithologist and conservationist. He has supported WLT since its founding, and became a WLT Council member in 2011.

At BlogStock Bill discussed the ways in which travel can bring people into contact with nature, and the benefits of writers going into the field to experience wildlife first hand. He also described some of the personal experiences that have made him passionate about saving threatened animals and supporting WLT.

Former Director of Conservation at the RSPB, Mark Avery is a dedicated naturalist and independent environmental consultant. A keen blogger on environmental issues with a strong following on social media, Mark became a member of WLT’s Council in 2014. At BlogStock he shared his views on responsible blogging and on promoting wildlife travel through social media.  

They were joined by Dan Bradbury, Head of Development at WLT. Dan spoke about environmentally friendly travel, and how to offset emissions through WLT’s Carbon Balanced programme. Dan launched the MyFlightCarbon calculator at BlogStock, and highlighted the important relationship between WLT and corporate supporter Airport Parking & Hotels (APH), who sponsored BlogStock.

APH will be held a special reception on the evening of Saturday 5 September to encourage festival goers to find out how APH can work with and support bloggers.

BlogStock was held at Aldenham Country Park in Elstree, London from 4-6 September 2015.
