Explorer and conservationist Robin Hanbury Tenison has captured the imagination and support of people worldwide since being diagnosed with COVID-19.
Robin, who is an author and President of charity Survival International, became ill in early March after returning from a skiing trip and came to Derriford Hospital to be cared for.
Whilst with us, Robin’s son Merlin has written in detail about his father, his life story and achievements and his recent illness. Some of these articles are linked to here:
- The Spectator Was this the moment my father won his fight against coronavirus?
- The Spectator The old explorer is returning to the land of the lucid
- Daily Mail My hero explorer dad was felled by the plague he predicted
Whilst with us, Robin has been cared for in ICU and on Braunton Ward and visited our secret rehabilitation garden, where he enjoyed the sun on his face and unfiltered fresh air. As he left hospital yesterday to go home, he proudly clutched his #rehablegend badge. We wish Robin and his family all the very best for his recovery and their future.
