Lawrie joined FWAG South West in 2019 as Assistant Farm Conservation Adviser in Cornwall.

He developed a passion for Cornish nature while growing up near Launceston, before undertaking ecological undergraduate and master's degrees while based in Falmouth. Since graduating he has worked on conservation projects elsewhere in the country, including stone-curlew conservation around Salisbury Plain, bumblebee conservation in Kent and Grassland conservation in Essex. He is delighted to have this opportunity to use his knowledge to help farmers within the county he calls home, and cares deeply about.
