My guest today is Pete Cairns. Pete is a professional photographer and the founding director of The Wild Media Foundation, a social enterprise, which includes initiatives such as SCOTLAND: the Big Picture – an organisation that informs, inspires and influences fresh thinking around the potential for a wilder Scotland. He also co-founded the Wild Wonders of Europe project, which brought together 70 of the continent’s most talented nature photographers and sent them on 145 assignments across 48 European countries to gather more than 200,000 stunning images, showcasing Europe’s rich diversity and to promote conservation as a force for good.
