Steve has made several major series for BBC TV including Steve Leonard's Ultimate Killers, Steve Leonard's Extreme Animals, Animal Camera and Journey of Life. His most recent success is BBC1's Orangutan Diaries (now in preparation for its second series). Steve made his name as a TV-vet when cameras followed his training for the popular series Vet School and then later for Vets in Practice and Vets in the Wild.
TV work has made Steve famous as not only one of the country's leading vets, but as an enthusiastic, empathetic and inspirational communicator. His adventures to far-flung places in extreme conditions, alongside his enlightening experiences of animals facing adversity, ensure his presentations inspire and awe his audience.
Steve's series of talks for the National Geographical Society have been a national sell-out success. He is a patron and speaker for the PDSA, Borneo Orangutan Survival International and the International Fund for Animal Welfare. He is regularly asked to make presentations for zoological societies and universities, as well as for commercial veterinary and wildlife-related companies.
