TV adventurer Monty Halls is offering to take people on a tour of the world in just one evening.

Monty, who lives in Dartmouth, is coming to Living Coasts in Torquay to talk about his life as a TV presenter, marine biologist, travel writer, public speaker and diver. His talk promises to roam the world in just one evening.

Monty explains: “This is a lifetime of ocean exploration packed into a single talk. It ranges from South Africa to Northern Norway, from magnificent sharks to colossal squid, from the tepid Tropics to the frigid Poles. Illustrated throughout by images taken by world class photographers, and video footage recorded by some of the best wildlife cameramen in the business, it’s a must for anyone passionate about the sea, about exploration, and the creatures with which we share our blue planet.”

In addition, Living Coasts’ Clare Rugg, a scientist and educator in her own right, will talk about Torquay’s coastal zoo and aquarium and its conservation work at home and overseas.
