Fergus Beeley Summit with his children

Fergus Beeley

I spent most of my career making wildlife films, many with Sir David Attenborough and I remain as an active independent producer. I’m also an active committee member of the Explorers Club of New York and a Fellow of the Royal Asiatic Society.

I’ve seen most remote and exciting corners of the world, met some incredibly interesting people and worked with some remarkable grass-roots wildlife organisations. I bring this knowledge and experience to Steppes to co-ordinate The Steppes Fund for Change, overseeing the land concessions for tree planting around Scunthorpe, supporting nuclear fusion at Oxford, and seeking appropriate organisations that we can support in women’s empowerment, girls’ education and wildlife conservation.

Loch Tummel, Scotland

Because I’ve spent most of my career being away from home making wildlife films, much to the irritation of my family, I hardly ever want to travel abroad on holiday.

My favourite dream holiday is drifting in a rowing boat on a silent, remote Scottish Loch, hearing the water lapping and the resonant call of a Black-throated diver.
