Having helmed over 40 primetime programmes, her work is wide ranging, from animal behaviour and wildlife series such as Super Smart Animals and Nature's Epic Journeys, to hard hitting environmental documentaries such as Meat: A Threat to our Planet? and Drowning in Plastic, which investigated the ocean plastic crisis and successfully raised the level of public debate on the important topic. Liz also presented the award-winning Galapagos - a three-part series which saw her join a team of scientists to carry out ground-breaking research and undertake her first submersible dive to 1km beneath the waves, the deepest anyone had gone on the Archipelago
Her most recent series include, Our Changing Planet which began airing on BBC One during spring 2022. The series is a definitive seven-year diary, documenting the fight to save our planet's most threatened ecosystems. In 2023, on Sky Nature with Arctic from Above, Liz joined scientists in one of the planet's last great wildernesses to reveal fresh insights about how Arctic wildlife is faring in the face of climate change. And in Secrets of the Jurassic Dinosaurs for BBC Two, Liz travelled to Wyoming to investigate a dinosaur graveyard that is transforming the way we think about the Jurassic. In Autumn, in a yet to be announced four-part-series, Liz will return to her Caribbean roots, to discover the region's lesser-known, remarkable wildlife and meet the extraordinary people who are fighting to save it.
In addition to her television work, Liz presented What Planet Are We On? for BBC Sounds and Radio 5 Live. The podcast series looked at the impact we are having on our planet and the practical solutions we can adopt to create a more sustainable future. Guests included Sir David Attenborough, Idris Elba and Christiana Figueres.
Liz has a Masters degree in wild animal biology from the Royal Veterinary College and Zoological Society of London. She regularly speaks at and hosts science and natural history events across the country, including the National Science and Engineering Competition, the Natural History Museum's Wildlife Photographer of Year Awards, and New Scientist Live. She was elected the first female president of The Wildlife Trusts, and was also recently awarded an Honorary Fellowship of the British Science Association.
