Ryan Greaves


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.

“I feel very privileged to be a part of this exciting project and enjoy watching it’s message spread. Re-wilding is one of the most important and fascinating concepts in modern conservation. Camping, eating out, sitting round the campfire, listening to owls, woodpeckers and nightingales, in the middle of a rewilding project – it doesn’t get much better than this!”

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.
