Dara McAnulty is a Northern Irish naturalist, writer and environmental campaigner. In 2015, when just 15 years old, he became the youngest ever winner of the RSPB Medal and received the Wainwright Prize for UK nature writing in 2020, after the release of his debut book ‘Diary of a Young Naturalist’, which chronicles the turning of his fourteenth year and details his intense connection to the natural world. He is also the youngest author to be long-listed for the 2020 Baillie Gifford Prize for non-fiction and for the shortlist for the 2020 Books Are My Bag Readers’ Awards, which he won in the non-fiction category.
Maitreyabandhu will be in conversation with him about his love of nature, his autism and his wildlife activism.
