Earlier this year we were very sad to say goodbye to our longstanding Fieldwork Manager of 8 years, Holly Wilmott. Holly made a huge contribution to Wild things! over the years, helping thousands of people, young and old, to nurture a love for flora, fauna and the environment as a whole.
We owe Holly a great debt of gratitude and we always knew he would be a tough act to follow. Luckily, we are now able to introduce our new Fieldwork Manager, Eleanor Foster, who is already bringing so much to our work here at Wild things!
With experience across a broad range of environments and roles ranging from the Peruvian Amazon to the jungles of Thailand to the deciduous forests of South England, Eleanor has practiced and grown her considerable knowledge and skills all over the world. She also brings a strong academic record of achievement within the environmental sciences, holding an MSc in Wildlife Management and Conservation, as well as a BSc in Geography. Add to this seven years experience in environmental education, plenty of hands-on fieldwork experience, excellent naturalist skills and a passion for the outdoors, sustainability and conservation, and perhaps you’ll see why we’re so delighted to have Eleanor on-board.
Welcome to Wild things!, Eleanor!
