A total rethink

“Every day there is a new confirmation of how destructive, inefficient, wasteful, cruel and unhealthy the industrial agricultural machine is. We need a total rethink of our food and farming systems before it’s too late.”

For 25 years Philip has worked extensively on animal welfare issues, wildlife and the environment. He is a recognised thought leader, his lectures taking him across the globe to meet and exchange ideas with like minded specialists, experts and individuals.


He regularly commentates in the media and on speaker platforms about the global effects of industrial farming and has been listed by The Grocer as one of the food industry’s most influential people.

A Global Biodiversity Crisis

“Factory farming to provide ‘cheap’ meat is not only the biggest cause of animal cruelty on the planet, it is also a major driver of wildlife declines. It causes deforestation, soil erosion, marine pollution dead zones and drives species as diverse as jaguars, elephants and penguins to the brink of extinction.”

Next Speaking Event – On Thursday 24th October Philip will be the keynote speaker and a participant at the Hampshire and Isle of Wight ‘Wilder’ Wildlife Trust Conference at The Middle Brook Centre, Winchester SO23 8DQ

The world is waking up to the environmental catastrophe we face. Action is needed at all levels, globally and locally, to reverse wildlife declines and tackle the climate crisis. By 2030 the Wildlife Trust’s vision is that nature is fully on the road to recovery, wildlife is returning and ecosystems are restored.

We know we need more people on nature’s side and more space for nature to thrive, but how will we achieve this and who will help us?

Join us and those who inspire us – our partners, our members, our champions and community leaders – as they set out our plan for a wilder future.
