Dora Nightingale, Founder and Director of Fox Guardians
Dora is a film-maker with a passion for wildlife. She uses her skills as a film-maker to create much-needed good press for foxes. She set up Fox Guardians to reach a wide audience with her educational and entertaining fox films and hopes to inspire many people to become fox guardians.
Dora’s life changed forever when in the summer of 2016 two fox cubs strolled into her in garden in broad daylight. This was the day she became “foxed”. When the cubs – who were named Freya and Faith – returned daily for four months throughout the summer, Dora started to document their lives on film. She made a point of never touching or taming the fox cubs but filming unobtrusively.
