Hear about the unique lives of the semi-wild herds, the lost species of the Fen, Ajay's fondest wildlife sightings and the importance of connecting children to nature. Learn about Ajay's own journey from teenaged work experience at Wicken to becoming a ranger on the Fen, as well as a wildlife presenter and author. Ajay will sign copies of his book, Wetland Diaries: Ranger Life and Rewilding on Wicken Fen, in the gift shop afterwards.
