Meet our new Conservation Outreach Officer!
Lauren Kennedy joined the BDS team this month as the new Conservation Outreach Officer.
Lauren: “Growing up in South Wales I was not short of amazing wild spaces to explore, I soon became obsessed with botany and a wide range of invertebrate groups. I went on to study a BSc Biology at Cardiff University followed by MSc Environmental Biology at Swansea University. I have worked for several organisations; Natural England, Field Studies Council and Bumblebee Conservation Trust, in which I have focused on public engagement, working with volunteers and creating training. I spend most of my time outdoors and can be found looking for plants and insects as well as hiking in the mountains. I feel very privileged to join the team and to share with others the magnificence and importance of dragonflies. I am looking forward to playing a part in the conservation effort for dragonflies and the habitats they need.”
Lauren will be taking over our Dragonfly Hotspot and outreach projects. You can get in touch here:
