In recent years I have specialised in teaching children about wild owls and how to help them and now have an increasing demand for my services in primary schools all over the South West.
I have enviable access to thousands of my own owl photographs and hours of High Definition video that is exclusive to me - this makes my presentations extremely colourful and fascinating and is a very strong element of my visits - the WOW factor. I am confident that there are few people in my field that offer the powerful combination of knowledge, personality and multimedia that I use, particularly in schools.
I have appeared on national television on a number of occasions both as a guest and guest presenter and regularly appear on the radio to talk about owls, as well as the local press. Media coverage has included
I am fully insured and CRB Checked for all my Wild Owl work and provide risk assessment paperwork where required..
Through my school visits and community work I teach children and the wider public about wild British owls, how amazing they are and things we can do to help them. I also give advice about wildlife gardening and ways we can help to create and conserve wildlife habitats. In 2013 I was ‘Highly Commended’ by Bristol Zoo as a Local Conservation Educator.
Leaving a management career in 2006 to form Wild Owl, I have given over 1000 talks to a wide variety of groups, clubs and schools all over the region and have established a reputation in wildlife circles as a knowledgeable and dedicated bird of prey conservationist who works hard to raise public awareness about these amazing birds and other wildlife.
