Octavia Hopwood is not what you’d call a traditional natural history presenter. She couples her deep-rooted passion for the natural world with skills in survival and adventure sports in an attempt to observe natures rarest and hardiest species, and fully immerse herself in the natural world - meaning that there is no place she deems inaccessible!


As a biologist with expertise in soil health and microbiology, Octavia is committed to enlightening people about sustainable practices, be it in conservation, agriculture, horticulture or in the garden. Octavia is always on the lookout for new challenges and hopes that her enthusiasm for the natural world, coupled with a boundless on-screen energy, will help inspire people about the amazing planet we live on and educate them about the current global issues we face.
