Miranda Krestovnikoff has always loved to be outdoors. Her passion for wildlife started early on by observing animals in the wild and keeping a veritable menagerie at home in the laundry room! Miranda studied Zoology at Bristol University and even before graduating, secured work at the BBC Natural History Unit. Miranda later became a presenter and this enabled her to travel and present conservation stories from around the globe. Today, Miranda is involved in several charities including the RSPB, National Trust and WDC and has been acclaimed as 'the new David Attenborough' (The Sunday Times) and 'the highest-profile Wreck diver in Britain'.
