Tegan has landed at Knepp after spending the past eight years living on remote and windswept islands studying population declines in seabirds for the RSPB and the British Antarctic Survey.

She has a degree in Conservation Biology and Ecology from the University of Exeter and in 2018 she pedalled around the UK on her trusty bicycle in order to see all 59 species of UK butterfly whilst listening to a lot of Test Match Special.

"Rewilding just makes sense. It is really knocking people’s socks off with what it is able to achieve just by letting go and allowing nature to restore itself. If there was a Knepp in every county in the UK, the future for biodiversity and people’s mental wellbeing would be an unendingly hopeful prospect."
