Bangor Alumnus Hamza Yassin

Bangor University Zoology alumnus to share his passion for conservation in a Channel 4 documentary

A Bangor University Zoology with Conservation alumnus will feature in a new Channel 4 documentary Scotland: My Life in the Wild this Saturday (12 December) at 6pm.  


Keen to give back to his alma mater, Hamza will be inspiring the next generation of wildlife enthusiasts by giving a lecture to Bangor University students next semester. He has also recently been made an Honorary Associate in recognition of his significant contribution to the work in the School of Natural Sciences.  

Hamza said of his time at Bangor: “My time at Bangor University ignited my passion for conservation and wildlife and I am so grateful for Bangor's support and encouragement through my studies, I am really looking forward to returning to Bangor to share my experiences with current student." 

Professor Julia Jones, one of Hamza’s former lecturers, said: “I remember Hamza very well. He was a super engaged student who especially loved getting out in the field. He also had a wicked sense of humour. It's no surprise at all that Hamza is making such a success of his career, I'm absolutely delighted for him." 

The programme is available on All4 until 8 January 2021.
