Big Cats: The (Natural) History Of A Fascination

Big cats are one of planet earth’s most iconic animal families.

The pinnacle of natural selection, they occupy a unique place in human culture and imagination. Despite this, big cats are under threat like never before, as they struggle to adapt to the Anthropocene. Join big cat conservationist Dr Jonny Hanson for an interactive exploration of this story, including the science of big cats, their conservation and our fascination with them.

Told through the medium of Jonny’s own fascination – from tracking leopards in Africa as a teenager and working with most big cat species in captivity, through to work on snow leopard conservation and rewilding Ireland – this live show will leave you even more fascinated by big cats.
