Keynote

Request for fees and availability
Keynote speaker Benjamin Mee is the man who bought a zoo and the inspiration for the film entitled We Bought a Zoo. He is a passionate man who speaks of courage, resilience and leadership. His story is unique and his style is captivating. He is able to engage with any type of audience and deliver a memorable and motivational talk. He reminds us of the importance striving to meet our goals - even in the face of adversity.

Benjamin shares his emotive story of courage, resilience and enterprise. When he and his family learned that the dilapidated  Dartmoor Zoo would be closed down and the majority of the animals destroyed  if a buyer couldn’t be found, he defied all odds and bought it.

Benjamin possesses an unwavering passion for transforming lives through knowledge, collaboration and partnership, and encouraging sustainability through shared practice in the context of conservation. Despite a rather strained relationship with the education system in his youth, Benjamin went on to study Psychology at UCL and then went on to complete an MSc in Science Journalism at Imperial College.

He was a contributing editor to Men’s Health and a columnist at Guardian before he moved to Southern France and began writing a book on the Evolution of Humour in Man and Animals. He was recently awarded an honorary doctorate in science from Plymouth University and has had a lifelong interest in the field of animal intelligence.
