In 2016, I realised that to establish practices which affect real conservation results in time frames that address challenges before they become irretrievable, conservationist need to be more innovative, flexible and collaborative in their approach than we have traditionally been. My solution to this was to become an Independent Ecological Consultant, able to work where and when I was required and, crucially, with all stakeholders and not just the ones my views were aligned with and in 2017 I started LRC Wildlife Conservation. As a conservation scientist I believe we should always be asking the key question ‘How can people and wildlife coexist?’
As a professional Conservation and Ecology Consultant, I am committed to providing the necessary guidance you need in order to take action. From making strategic decisions to understanding what your logical next steps are, I’m here to guide you through any and all processes. With my help, your plans will be realised in no time. I possess a determination and enthusiasm for my work which enables me to operate in challenging locations, with limited budgets and restrictive time frames while completing my objectives in a professional manner and to a high standard. I bring these qualities and more to all my clients and projects.
