Darroch Donald has two major passions in life – wildlife and travel. Having explored some far-flung places he emigrated from Scotland to New Zealand in 1992 where he acted as a wildlife consultant to the government. In 1996 he published his first book, Creatures, an account of his wildlife encounters, illustrated with his own photographs and artwork. Now Darroch has expanded his work to include both travel and nature.
