Ed Hutchings

Born in East Anglia, but raised in the Arabian Gulf, Ed Hutchings was always going to have two things – itchy feet and an inquisitive mind. After leaving university he embarked on a career as a sommelier for a decade, working at various Michelin-star restaurants; in the process winning the prestigious sommelier competition ‘UK Torres Quizmaster’ in 2004. Ed eventually decided that wildlife was his true passion in life and he went into conservation. After brief spells with the RSPB and the BTO, his writing started to take centre stage. What started out as a casual column in a local village rag, escalated to writing articles for BBC Wildlife amongst many others. Above all, conservation is closest to his heart especially the preservation of the wilder reaches of our planet.
