A BIT ABOUT ME
Firstly thank you for taking the time to look at my website. My passion is for evidence based wildlife conservation. I am especially interested in the survey and conservation of plants and invertebrates.
My main areas of interest are:
Bees and wasps
Beetles (Especially saproxylics)
I currently work as a monitoring and research officer for the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire Wildlife Trust where I undertake work to inform management on our nature reserves and beyond. Alongside this I carry out independant surveys and teach identification workshops.
In 2010 I started listing the species I had seen anywhere in Britain and discovered Pan Species Recording, recording as many species as possible. This meant I learnt to survey a variety of taxonomic groups! To date I have recorded over 3500 species in Britain.
My ethos is that we will not save what we do not love and we cannot save what we cannot identify. Therefore I take it upon myself to learn to identify as many species as possible.
“We cannot win this battle to save species and environments without forging an emotional bond between ourselves and nature as well – for we will not fight to save what we do not love” – Stephen Jay Gould
