I'm all over the place but I love the challenges, especially when you are rescuing something.

You never know what you are going out to. It's all about thinking on your feet. Hundreds of animals are housed at his centre at any one time, including injured ones and orphans, nursed and fed until they're fit enough to be released.
Defender : Robert J Crane :
He has strict rules never to befriend them, because as soon as they develop a relationship with a human it drastically reduces their chances of returning successfully to the wild. It's a far cry from his life in the Eighties as a commodities trader in the City, making huge amounts of money and living the high-rolling lifestyle that went with it. He admits he neglected his now ex wife Jill and didn't see his two daughters grow up.
But while his colleagues blew their bonuses on designer gear, in , Cowell set up a wildlife sanctuary in the grounds of his stockbroker belt home in Leatherhead, Surrey, which, seven years later, became Wildlife Aid. In the early days, Jill ran the centre during the day, and Cowell would go out on rescues at weekends. But the strains of working in the City took their toll.
I just cracked up. The thing that nipped that in the bud was when I was fired.
I felt my shoulders rise about six feet higher than they had been. He was eventually sacked, and only then did he realise that rescuing animals was really what he wanted to do. At 42, Cowell answered his calling. Not only did he run the charity, but he also presented, wrote and produced Channel 5 and Animal Planet series Wildlife SOS for 16 years until the show was axed. We need to portray wildlife with reality.
Steve Irwin is a typical example. He did an incredible amount of good but in the end he had his zoo - and don't get me started on zoos because I hate them with a vengeance. That just makes me want to bang my head against the wall because it's the wrong impression to give. You should only ever approach a wild animal when it's in trouble.
If it's doing its own thing and is happy, watch it from a distance. I would love to get another TV series. We will do anything to get that animal back regardless of species, but if that animal cannot survive in the wild, I'm not going to keep it in captivity for the next five or 10 years.
He's seen horrific things on his travels, from lions in Zambia who are taken by poachers and bred for trophy-hunting, to the bear bile industry in Vietnam - the bile is used in Chinese medicine - where bears are stuck in cages having bile painfully extracted from their gall bladder every week.
