Cogs and Marvel for Google Earth Day 2022
Lizzie’s talk was brilliant. Really engaging and inspiring, and she pitched it perfectly for the audience. They really enjoyed hearing her tips on how to get into wildlife film making, and she’d peppered it with loads of exciting video clips – which was brilliant. Many of the participants said that it was the highlight of the 3 day event, and I really appreciated the fact that she stuck around for so long afterwards to take selfies and chat with the young people.
