In terms of conservation, my degree is in Zoology. From there, I spent a year working with Cumbria Wildlife Trust, where I got thrown head-first into land management. I split my time between chainsawing trees, presenting films about Cumbria's flagship species and leading guided walks. I've also worked extensively on, what I consider, the most exciting regenerative farm in the whole of the Lake District, Whinpot Farm. They’re at the forefront of how I think farming in the UK should be, focusing on improving soil health to combat climate change and merging wildlife and livestock, so both can live successfully off the land. I've been taught everything from beekeeping to calving, haymaking, and fencing.
When it comes to environmentalism, I have zero experience - I just knew I had to do something, and I’ve been lucky to have had great success so far. I never considered myself a campaigner before this, but I suppose that's what I am now.
