James Glancy is a self shooting presenter and conservationist. He hosts on Discovery Channel's Shark Week, presents the environmental wildlife show Planet SOS on the Mail Plus, and has a new documentary coming out on National Geographic in 2021. He previously served in the Royal Marines.
James has spent his life outdoors in wild and hostile places. As a child James always had a passion for animals, and was taught to dive and swim with sharks at a young age by a former US Navy Seal, who inspired him to join the Royal Marines and eventually become a conservationist.
James is a Director of conservation charity, Veterans For Wildlife, where he focuses on the preservation of endangered species and combating the global trade in shark fins. As Director of Special Projects, James is part of a team building a Zulu community owned game reserve in KwaZulu Natal that will become a safe haven for rhinos, and manages projects in West Africa, protecting the precious ecosystems of the rainforest.
James has taken his wildlife passion into television as a cameraman and presenter. You can keep up to date on James Glancy's conservation and film projects on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
