I am a 20 year old birder, currently studying Ecology and Wildlife Conservation at Bournemouth University. I have been a birder since I was 8 and have been passionate about all aspects of the natural world ever since. Through this I have managed to have opportunities to work for and volunteer for a number of organisations. This includes working on the BTO's Youth Advisory Panel, being an Ambassador for the Cameron Bespolka Trust, as well as volunteering for the RSPB, LWT, and Heath Hands. Recently I have been campaign to save a local area of green belt which is ear marked for development, however my main interests are trying to spread my knowledge and passion for the natural world and trying to help encourage the next generation of young naturalists.
