Barry Kaufmann-Wright

Author, photographer, lecturer and lifelong wildlife enthusiast, Barry Kaufmann-Wright, will be talking to Cambridge Writers on December 6.
 
Barry was born on a farm and on leaving school went to work with the late TV naturalist and author, Gerald Durrell, at the Jersey Wildlife Preservation Trust (Jersey Zoo). Here he learned about conservation and the breeding of endangered species and became interested in photography.
 
He was a police officer in Essex for thirty-two years, twenty-two of them as a Wildlife Crime officer dealing with issues ranging from wild bird trapping to the multi-million pound international trade in endangered species. In 2003 he was named WWF Wildlife Law Enforcer of the Year and in 2007 was made a Fellow of the British Naturalists Association. He took an Open University degree in Natural Sciences and a Birmingham University post-graduate diploma in Ornithology. He has a collection of 61,000 slides and written five books.

Meetings are held at Hartington Grove Friends' Meeting House, from 7.30 pm to about 9.30. Hartington Grove runs between Hills Road and Cherry Hinton Road, Cambridge.
