This weekend leading tourist attraction Ullswater ‘Steamers’ partners with Lake District Foundation to host a fascinating talk by Dr Kate Rawles as part of their wildlife awareness week.

Dr Kate Rawles, Adventure and Ecology Ambassador for the Lake District Foundation, said: “I’m passionate about using adventurous journeys to raise awareness and inspire action on our major environmental challenges. I’ve recently returned from The Life Cycle: Colombia to Cape Horn by bamboo bike, exploring biodiversity loss. I’m excited to share my story this Saturday about wildlife issues abroad and closer to home here in the Lake District National Park.”
