We are thrilled to announce that the best-selling author and film-maker Levison Wood has joined the Soldiering On Awards family as our Ambassador for the Animal Partnership Award.
A former regular officer in the Parachute Regiment and a serving reservist, multi-talented Levison is a British explorer, writer and photographer – with eight best-selling books under his belt! He is a keen conservationist and an ambassador for several charities as well as an elected Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, and of the Explorers Club.
Levison has produced a number of critically acclaimed documentaries which have been aired around the world, including the popular Channel 4 series ‘Walking with Elephants.’ His epic 650-mile journey followed the annual migration of Botswana’s elephants, with Levison encountering elephant orphans before going in search of a herd to follow.
We haven’t yet had any elephants nominated for a Soldiering On Award, but you never know… In the meantime, if you are aware of any animal that you feel deserves recognition for its support to the military family, or a person or group that works tirelessly with animals and is linked to the Armed Forces, now’s the time to tell us.
