THE wildlife presenter who appeared in one of the most talked-about photos of the year is coming to Dunfermline.

The snap of neoprene-clad Lizzie Daly swimming next to a massive barrel jellyfish, taken off the coast of Cornwall, went viral on social media and was picked up by media outlets around the world.

No-one could believe a sea creature that big could be found in UK waters and she'll be discussing Dan Abbott's amazing photo, as well as many other wildlife conservation stories, at Dunfermline High School on Wednesday, November 6.

The TV presenter will be speaking as part of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society (RSGS) Inspiring People series of talks and hopes it will encourage West Fifers to explore and think more deeply about the wildlife that exists on our doorstep.

Lizzie said: “I'm very proud to be speaking for the RSGS this year – and to be doing so across beautiful Scotland is a real highlight for me!

"Some of my favourite wildlife encounters have come from exploring the wild corners of Scotland so I'm really excited to be bringing my stories alive here.

“I'll be talking about some of my most crucial tales of wildlife conservation from around the world and looking forward to being part of this dynamic series.”

Lizzie is a Welsh wildlife biologist, broadcaster, film-maker and conservationist.

A healthy curiosity for the natural world has led her to research animals and make wildlife films all over the world.

She has worked as a presenter on Cbeebies, CBBC, National Geographic, BBC Two and Animal Planet and is now a host on the BBC Earth Unplugged YouTube channel.

As well as the jellyfish photo, Lizzie will discuss her experiences in the depths of the rainforest in Borneo, from the icy straits of South-East Alaska and at the forefront of conserving the largest land mammal on Earth in Kenya.

Mike Robinson, chief executive of RSGS, said: “Lizzie’s energy and love for the natural sciences is infectious.

“We look forward to welcoming her to Scotland, and I expect our audiences will be left inspired to get outside and learn more about the natural world – Lizzie is a great communicator with an ability to bring conservation to life.”

Her talk begins at 7.30pm and tickets are available on the door, £10 for visitors or free for RSGS members/students.
