Ryan studied Zoology at University and has been involved in conservation ever since, working in a number of roles for the Sussex Wildlife Trust and as warden at Woods Mill nature reserve. He’s also a Forest School leader, organising outdoor learning for children from bushcraft to wildlife identification, using games and stories.
Ryan has helped lead wildlife surveying teams in the jungle of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula.
And he’s mad about bats - he’s events coordinator of the Sussex Bat Group and leads our Bat Safaris. You may also see Ryan helping out around the campsite, so feel free to stop him for a chat about wildlife!
"I feel very privileged to be a part of this exciting project. Re-wilding is one of the most important and fascinating concepts in modern conservation. Camping, eating out, sitting round the campfire, listening to owls and nightingales and turtle doves, in the middle of a rewilding project – it doesn’t get much better than this!"
