Hannah is a conservationist specialising in projects to recover species in the UK. She is currently working at the RSPB as a Senior Species Recovery Officer, managing a number of different species recovery projects including an exciting partnership project to reintroduce to the corncrake back to England. This involves everything from sitting in a wet field in the dead of night listening for corncrakes, to sitting behind a desk drawing up budgets. Hannah works on wetland species and their conservation, coordinating efforts to improve the status of these species in the UK. Hannah also has fundraising experience, in particular project development and bid writing. She is very lucky to work with some very talented and dedicated conservationists who are constant source of inspiration. Hannah studied at Newcastle University and has worked for a number of conservation organisations including Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust and the Wildlife Trusts. Hannah is an active bird ringer in her spare time and likes to get out from behind the desk as much as possible!
