Sophie Pavelle

Science communicator Sophie Pavelle set out to find ten rare UK species under threat of extinction because of climate change. Her funny and insightful book Forget Me Not charts her low-carbon journey across Britain travelling on foot, by bicycle, electric car, kayak, ferry, and train. Join her in conversation with local ecologist John Pinel.

Like many of her generation, Sophie Pavelle is determined to demand action on climate change. In her hilarious and thought-provoking first book, she describes the trips she took to see ten rare native species: species that could disappear by 2050 and be forgotten by the end of the century if their habitats continue to decline.

‘This enchanting book could not be more timely; it brings much to inspire our future thinking, and is a joy to read.’ Joanna Lumley

Forget Me Not won the People’s Book Prize for non-fiction this year, and was recently long-listed for the Wainwright Prize for Writing on Conservation.

Sophie Pavelle is an adventurous science communicator and writer. She finds creative routes to storytelling, putting a contemporary twist on the natural history genre across wide audiences. She has gained an outstanding reputation across the outdoor/adventure, conservation, NGO and science communication sector and has written for BBC Wildlife, BBC Countryfile and Coast magazines.
