Finding Eden talk by Robin Hanbury-Tenison
- Friday 15 December 2017
- Eden Project Foundation Building
Eden Project Members and their guests are invited to attend an exclusive talk by noted explorer and President of Survival International, Robin Hanbury-Tenison. Hear about his travels into the heart of Borneo and the writing of his new book, Finding Eden.
Robin Hanbury-Tenison, through his work with Survival International, is the champion of indigenous populations everywhere.
Forty years ago the interior of Borneo was a pristine, virgin rainforest inhabited by uncontacted indigenous tribes and virtually tame wildlife. It was into this 'Garden of Eden' that Robin Hanbury-Tenison led one of the largest ever Royal Geographical Society expeditions, an extraordinary undertaking which triggered the global rainforest movement and illuminated, for the first time, how vital rainforests are to our planet.
Robin's new book, Finding Eden, is an evocative and inspiring account of his fifteen months spent in a place and a way of life that is on the cusp of extinction. Find out all about his experiences at this exclusive talk.
The book will be available to purchase on the evening, with Robin available to sign copies at your request.
Following the talk in Eden's Foundation Building, performances of our Christmas Festival of Light and Sound will be running, with last entry to Eden at 6.30pm.
