Deya Ward is a zoologist, filmmaker and speaker who is passionate about the natural world and conservation of natural ecosystems. Having completed her masters degree in wildlife filmmaking two years ago, Deya has worked at the BBC on David Attenborough’s landmark series Seven World’s One Planet and is now working with another production company on a wildlife series produced for Netflix.  Although Deya is an advocate of all wildlife, her hero is the orangutan, and she spent 8 months living with these animals in the jungles of Borneo where she also picked up her impressive Idonesian skills.
