Raystede welcomes Ray Hale, the author and wildlife photographer, to talk about spiders!

Author & Wildlife Photographer
Having spent many years in the Private Sector as an Industrial Health and Safety consultant, Ray has finally had the opportunity to follow his passion.

Ray enjoys sharing his experiences so much that he now leads groups of naturalists, researchers and eco-tourists deep into the rainforests of Borneo in search of endangered wildlife. His lectures include Rainforest Conservation, Saving Endangered Species, The History of Sabah, Rajah Brooke and the Head Hunters of Borneo. Although he has an encyclopaedic knowledge of wildlife in general, his main field of study has always been centred on arachnids and he is a recognised World authority on the large so called “bird eating tarantulas” as well as the large number of species of spiders of the United Kingdom. He belongs to a number of organisations including the British Arachnological Society and the British Tarantula Society of which he is a council member.

He has written a number of articles on Arachnology and in 1998 he published the book “An Introduction to the Spiders of the Genus Haplopelma: A Study of the Tarantulas of South East Asia”. He is currently writing a field guide to the spiders of Malaysia. He has had a number of his photographs published in entomological and Arachnological journals.

This event is free for Friends of Raystede or £10 for non-members. You can become a Friend from just £3 per month by clicking here.
