During his hour-long talk, Wade gave guests insight into his lifelong passion for freshwater fish and some of his most exciting moments both on and off-camera filming his popular Animal Planet TV series, “River Monsters.”

Yesterday, Wade participated in a satellite media tour, which was broadcasted from our Animal Planet Australia: Wild Extremes exhibit.

Wade told the journalists he felt a sense of nostalgia sitting in front of our large barramundi and rays – they reminded him of his recent trip to Australia for an episode of the show that highlighted the same animals!

The world’s most fearless fisherman, Jeremy Wade is a biologist, teacher, writer and television host who has been traveling (mostly solo) to the world’s most remote rivers for over 25 years. During that time, Wade has encountered some of the strangest and most terrifying fish out there and has risked his life more than once to document the stories of hundreds of fish and the cultures where they live. Wade holds a degree in zoology from Bristol University and a postgrad teaching certificate in biological sciences from the University of Kent.

Don’t miss out on the next exciting lecture featuring our marine mammal staff!

    Jeremy Wade is the best! So knowledgeable and very entertaining. He does a great service to his viewers by increasing our knowledge of both the fish he catches and the cultures he visits.

      Are you a member Dihann? Or do you receive our Aquamail emails? We announced it through those emails, but honestly couldn’t get past there because the event sold out so quickly!
