Dave Green

MOTH EXPERT & SAFARI GUIDE

Dave has been involved with species recording at Knepp for nearly a decade and can often be seen out in the wildland bird-ringing, moth trapping or generally searching for wildlife. He has been passionate about conservation and ecology for more than thirty years and is focussed on the importance that public engagement plays in opening up the wonders of wildlife to people.

Having spent his whole life living in West Sussex Dave has sadly witnessed the fall in numbers of many bird and insect species over the last four decades but is filled with hope by how wildlife has bounced back at Knepp in a relatively short space of time.

He is Chairman of the Sussex Moth Group, one of the founding Trustees of the Knepp Wildland Foundation, a Trustee on the Arun and Rother Rivers Trust and was a Trustee of the Sussex Wildlife Trust for 16 years.

‘I believe that the Knepp rewilding project provides a fantastic template for how to achieve biodiversity gain on low-grade agricultural land, and it shows how to create a more porous landscape to enable species to respond to climate change. Listening to the dawn chorus in the Knepp scrubland is one of the most magical experiences you can have in Sussex and takes me back to the birdsong of my childhood. Everybody should have a little bit of Knepp in their life.’

Our 12+ Policy

Knepp Wildland Safaris and campsite are all about the quiet and patient observation of nature.

Some of the species we are likely to encounter are shy or can be frightened by loud noises or sudden movements. Our campsite with open-air fire-pits, wood-burning stoves and an on-site pond is unsuitable for small children.

For this reason, our safaris, holiday cottages and campsite are suitable only for children of 12 and over.
