Anton Turner in Rajeshtan 2008

Today is the memorial of Anton Tuner, a friend from many years ago and a true conservationist, explorer and human being.

Anton’s website is at

If you google his name you can learn a lot about him. His death was a tragic accident whilst filming a BBC Serious Explorers series. He was trampled by an elephant that was charging the group and he put himself between the youths and the elephant.

Tricia, Tim and Georgie, my thoughts are with you today but I know you will be celebrating his life which was so colourful in true Turner fashion.
