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 volunteering with local wildlife groups. He’s also a Forest School leader, organising holistic outdoor learning for children from bushcraft activities to wildlife surveying, using games and stories.
Ryan has helped lead wildlife surveying teams in the jungle of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula with Operation Wallacea.
And he’s mad about bats – he’s events coordinator of the Sussex Bat Group and leads our Bat Safaris. He also carries out regular Reptile, Amphibian and Mammal monitoring for us here. You may also see Ryan helping out around the campsite, so feel free to stop him for a chat about anything wildlife related.
