Adam Hart is Professor of Science Communication at the University of Gloucestershire, where he teaches ecology, behaviour, evolution, and field biology. An entomologist by training, much of Adam’s research work now focuses on African ecology and conservation, including award-winning work on anti-poaching. Combining outreach with science, he has also developed national citizen science projects engaging tens of thousands of people in data collection on “flying ants”, house spiders, starlings, and wasps.
As a science communicator, Adam is a regular presenter of documentaries on BBC Radio 4 and BBC World Service, a frequent media commentator on conservation issues, and an author of popular science books. His latest book (to be published in 2022) explores our complex relationships with predators, a topic he also investigates in a BBC World Service series that will air in the summer of 2021.
