For 2019 the Watches are coming from the Cairngorms in Scotland. The team for the year is myself, Chris Packham, Gillian Burke and Iolo Williams. As usual the series will bring viewers the very best of British wildlife mixed with a bit of science, fun, facts and humour.
I've also been booked for various talks, award ceremonies, corporate jobs and guest appearances from Wildlife Trusts to the Forestry Commission, Sustainability Awards, The National Pet Show, Dogfest, Would I Lie To you, Countdown, Cruises and various others.
Being a Mum!
In between, I'm at home being a mum, doing the school run, the soccer run, the cricket run, and the 5 mile run!! (as well as a bit of yoga and pilates!)
My Book and Show
My first book! It's called 'Michaela Strachan's Really Wild Adventures', a book of fun and factual animal rhymes. It's a book of animal poems for children all about my experiences and adventures filming with wildlfe. It's full of photos and fab illustrations by Sarah Horne. It's published by Franklin Watts and can be ordered on Amazon.
We made the book into
a theatre show and took it on a tour in the Feb and Easter school holidays 2013 which was a lot of fun. I now do the show as a scaled down version of the show at events, zoos and wildlife parks including 'Yorkshire Wildlife Park', 'Camp Bestival', 'Adventure Valley' and 'Twycross Zoo'.
