Julian was the Founder Director of an award-winning nature and safari travel business, now part of Steppes Travel.

This ‘excuse for a job’ took him across the globe, visiting wilderness areas on seven continents from India to the Arctic, from the Galapagos to Rwanda, designing and developing new wildlife tours and safari programmes, in cooperation and support of a host of wildlife projects alongside conservation agencies and their wildlife experts and host communities.

The company raised over £1.5M for wildlife conservation. In 2004 his concern at the tiger’s continuing demise prompted him to launch the TOFTigers campaign to get the expanding nature tourism sector to support better and more sustainable nature tourism practices in tiger parks across the Indian subcontinent. Today it has over 220 travel businesses involved from around the world.

Julian has been interviewed for radio and TV around the world, writes numerous articles, as well as lectures on nature and wildlife conservation both in the UK, in India and around the globe.

We are very proud to be members of TOFT and support their work to save tigers.
