Rick Minter

Rick Minter is an environmental consultant specialising in people's attitudes to nature. He helps different groups and individuals explore ways of managing the environment together, and is hired by government bodies, councils, wildlife bodies and community groups. Separately to his day job he advises people on big cats. He runs talks and workshops to discuss big cats and the issues they present. He advises local and national media on the topic, and he networks with other researchers through the Big Cats in Britain group, which studies evidence and reports of the cats. He has chaired expert meetings on the subject, briefed scientific bodies, and pursued sightings with Britain's most experienced trackers. And crucially, he has seen and sensed some of these animals for himself -
