Temples, Tigers and a Bear called Polly

Pollyanna Pickering

Pollyanna Pickering is widely recognized as Europe's foremost wildlife artist, and is the most published fine artist working in Britain today. She has won over thirty international awards for her artwork, and in 2008 she received an honorary degree from the University of Derby in recognition of her achievements.

Join Pollyanna as she works hands on with tigers and elephants, and treks through remote jungles in Thailand and Vietnam in search of endangered species.

The highlight of Pollyanna’s journey - and this brand new talk - is a visit to a wonderful sanctuary in Vietnam which is now home to Polly, the Asiatic moonbear rescued by the Pollyanna Pickering Foundation. Hear Polly’s heart warming story, and meet some of the other residents of this special place, high in the cloud covered Tam Dao mountains.
