Steve Leonard

‘We are going to need a bigger glove!’ – Veterinary Tales from the Wild. Steve Leonard will delve into his experiences of life beyond his UK surgery. From working with unfamiliar species across the globe to understanding wildlife within natural habitats.

Having presented Operation Wild for BBC One in 2014, vet Steve has rarely been absent from British TV screens since his talents were spotted at Bristol Veterinary School and he was chosen to appear in BBC One’s highly popular documentary series Vets School and Vets in Practice.

His more recent ventures include Animal Kingdom, Safari Vet School and Panda Babies for ITV, Operation Wild for BBC One and The Wonder of Dogs for BBC Two.

Still working as a small animal vet in the family run practice in Cheshire, Steve moves easily between the world of domestic pets and the wider world of wild animals across the globe. He presented major wildlife series for the BBC such as Steve Leonard’s Ultimate Killers, Steve Leonard’s Extreme Animals and Incredible Animal Journeys as well as appearing with Kate Humble in The Hottest Place on Earth. He also co-presented the famously successful series of BBC One’s Orangutan Diary.

He is also a fervent supporter and active fundraiser for a number of charities close to his heart, including the PDSA, the UK’s largest veterinary charity, Wildlife Vets International, Painted Dog Conservation which helps the survival of African wild dogs and Dog A.I.D. which works with the pets of disabled people.
