Young adventurers are being given the opportunity to experience how makers of international wildlife programmes go about the task.

Canopy Access Ltd,the specialist climbing company responsible for hoisting presenters, kit and crew to giddy heights in such locations as Borneo, Venezuela and Indonesia will be at the Yorkshire Arboretum at Castle Howard on Sunday.

A specialist team will be running two tree climbing experience sessions to give those taking part a bird’s eye view of the world below, said spokesman, James Aldred.

“We use the same roping and rigging techniques to access the tree-tops right here in North Yorkshire as we do to film in the Sumatran rainforest canopy,” he said. “It’s great for us to bring our skills out from behind the cameras and share them with the public so they can get a whole new perspective of the arboretum.”

Sessions start at 9.30am and 1.30pm and last for three hours, costing £65 per person, with a minimum age of 12 years for those taking part.
