He campaigns tirelessly for conservation, the environment and animal welfare, is an ambassador for WWF, Médecins Sans Frontières and Tusk, a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and the President of the Campaign for National Parks.
His latest book Land Rover is the celebration of Ben’s journey across the length of the British Isles in an old Series 1 Land Rover, spending time with Defender enthusiast Sir Ranulph Fiennes, the Royal Marines and the Dartmoor search-and-rescue teams. His journey continues via the Bristol dockyard where thousands of Defenders are dispatched around the world and onto the Western Isles of Scotland and Islay, the island used as a testing ground by Spencer Wilks in 1947 to put several of the early Series Land Rover prototypes through their paces.
