For many of us, our love of wildlife and nature goes hand in hand with programmes like ‘The Really Wild Show’ which ran on the BBC and Childrens’ BBC for 20 years. Michaela Strachan has always been associated with some of the best TV about wildlife and nature, and she is as much a part of our childrens’ lives as us grown ups! Naturally, we are extremely excited that Michaela has joined the team at EcoTales and will be on the panel of judges for our film challenge.
Michaela is one of TVs best loved wildlife presenters. She is probably best known for presenting wildlife programmes, ‘The Really Wild Show’. ‘Michaela’s Wild Challenge’, ‘Orangutan Diaires’, ‘Elephant Diaires’, Michaela’s Zoo Babies’, ‘Animal Rescue Squad’ and ‘Countryfile’.
Michaela has more recently joined Chris Packham and Martin-Hughes Games for Autumnwatch, Springwatch and Winterwatch, all live series about British wildlife for the BBC, and she is currently filming ‘The Great Penguin Rescue’ for the NHU S.Africa. She has recently written a children’s book ‘Michaela Strachan’s Really Wild Adventures’, a book of poems about her adventures with wildlife. It has also been adapted into a children’s theatre show which is going on tour in February and Easter.
