Is love in the air? We think so — tomorrow is not only V day but on Thursday 14 February the Natural History Networks (NHN) is running an event: Jo Ruxton, former BBC NHU producer will be sharing her passion for ocean conservation, showing some clips from her pioneering Plastics Oceans Campaign Film, and talking about her inspirations, successes and future plans. 

The NHN is a great organisation. Their aim is to join-up the disconnected world of natural history film-makers to help the best people find the best jobs and the best production companies find the best talent — if you are already making your way or just starting off in the business it’s a great organisation to join. Their great resource website is a hub for sharing news of developments in technology, location services, wildlife broadcasting, networking events, and new commissions.
