Dr. Ben Garrod is an evolutionary biologist with a passion for bones and the stories they reveal. Ben’s television work includes, Attenborough and the Giant Dinosaur with Sir David Attenborough (BBC One), his award-winning BBC Four series Secrets of Bones, and the recent Natural World documentary Red Ape: Saving the Orangutans (BBC Two).
As a primatologist, Ben has spent over a decade observing the relationships between animals and humans, in a bid to understand the natural world and our place within it. He is a firm believer that learning about an individual can teach you about an entire species. This is something he realised while developing a chimpanzee conservation field site for renowned chimpanzee scientist Dr Jane Goodall in Uganda and developed through studying what determines a species throughout the course of his PhD studying island-living monkeys.
His take on the future of our planet is balanced on a theory of the power of one. One individual’s decisions and impact can make a difference, regardless of age, sex or position.
