About The Speaker...
Wildlife has inspired me from an early age – but my fascination with birds of prey began in my teens after my first encounter with a hawk. I followed this passion and left school to take a chance on an opportunity and today at 23 I manage a multi-award-winning Bird of Prey Conservation Centre, focussed on giving a future to the wildlife on our doorstep and the people in our varied UK communities. We believe in local conservation and inspiring change through the spectacle of free flight. Understanding hawks, to give them the most complete life possible, has not only grown my understanding and my love of biology but also of sustainability.
Whether it’s monitoring wild raptor breeding sites, rehabilitating wild birds of prey, promoting biodiversity or just flying my hawks – I love what I do. Our generation is perhaps the first with just the slightest chance of leaving the world in a better condition than we found it. I will make it my ambition, to be a part of that positive change.
About Their Talks...
Every day I am inspired by wildlife, and through speaking I am passionate about passing this inspiration forward to others. Birds of prey are remarkable predators, adaptors, communicators and survivors – by speaking I can share an insight into their lives, and insight into how we can all take a step to support our wild places.
Perhaps the biggest part of conservation is honest education – sharing ideas. This is what I am passionate about.
