Wildlife photographers honoured as time capsule buried

One of the University of Southampton's most high-profile alumni, Chris Packham is widely acknowledged as a TV presenter, author and photographer with an unrivalled passion for the environment. Even as an undergraduate, Chris was also quick to challenge certain conventional attitudes to conservation.

Chris was a fitting choice to judge last year’s Bringing Science to Life photography competition. This coincided with the burial of a time capsule under the foundations of what was then the forthcoming Life Sciences Building. (The contents of the capsule included Chris’s old student ID card.)

Chris is shown here announcing the winners at the awards ceremony.
