Abel Chapman (1851-1927) was a traveller, artist, observer and protector of wildlife. He is credited with saving the Spanish Ibex from extinction and discovered the main breeding place of the flamingo. Houxty, his Northumbrian home for many years became a natural sanctuary for all manner of wild things.
