Richard joined FWAG SW in 2023 as a Trainee Farm Environment Adviser. He moved to Cornwall in 2010 to study ecology at the University of Exeter’s Cornwall Campus in Penryn before going on to complete a master’s degree, researching cooperative-breeding birds called Babblers in Australia. He’s been involved with several nature-based organisations including the RSPB, Species Recovery Trust and with FWAG SW as a volunteer. His interests include botany and ornithology and is excited to work closely with farmers and land managers in Cornwall to support them and the environment.
