Charles Foster is a writer, traveller, veterinarian, taxidermist, barrister and philosopher. He wrote 'Being a Beast' and 'Being Human'. He joins us for the next Help our Planet talks. Come and join the conversation!

Charles Foster is known for his books and articles on Natural History, travel (particularly in Africa and the Middle East), theology, law and medical ethics. He is a Fellow of Green Templeton College, Oxford. His ‘Being a Beast’, an account of living with badgers, has won many awards, and has been followed with Being a Human.

Many of us have little idea what sort of creature we are. That matters. If we don’t know what we are, how can we know how to be happy, or how to behave well? To find out what we are we have to journey back into the distant past and retrace our journey as a species.
