Terry has held a lifelong fascination for wildlife, with vivid memories of collecting bugs in jars, scoping up pond life and inquisitive about anything to do with nature. The magical experience of his first wildlife holiday to Kenya spurred him on to travel far and wide in pursuit of creatures only known to him from encyclopedias and wildlife films. Terry’s self-taught knowledge of British wildlife has led him into voluntary survey work for the RSPB, Bat Conservation Trust, Vincent Trust and British Butterfly Conservation, as well as funding raising for many wildlife charities. Alongside this, he organised day trips and weekends away for birdwatchers from local ornithological societies in the south east of the UK. Eventually his interest led him to return to university and study a host of courses including British Cetaceans, Biological Field Studies and finally a degree in Environment and Conservation. Terry has an eclectic interest in wildlife and as an ecologist is really interested in how plants and animals exist and fit together, their behaviour and their impact on each other.
