Speaking & Workshops



Hosting small mammal trapping for university students

I am available as a public speaker on a variety of wildlife and conservation related topics. These may include my work on native mammal ecology, nature writing, the work of my affiliated organisations such as A Focus on Nature, and rewilding and species reintroduction.

I am also adequately experienced to deliver workshops on small mammal survey techniques, such as live trapping, field sign searches and footprint tunnels, as well as camera trapping for larger mammals.

Fees will be dependent on the distance travelled and nature of the event, and can be discussed in person.
