Chief Executive Officer – Matt Larsen-Daw firstname.lastname@example.org
Matt has spent the past five years at WWF, leading education programmes – recently around the new Sir David Attenborough BBC series Wild Isles. He is looking forward to working with, and for, the invaluable network of local mammal groups that form the foundations of the Society’s work, and would love to hear any questions, ideas or suggestions about the Society’s next phase of development. In his spare time, he’s likely to be found in a wood with his wife Kate, daughters Solstice and Rowan, and his camera! While he knows it’s important not to have favourites, he confesses to a fondness for otters, as rare instances of observing them in the wild have been magical experiences.
Fiona completed a BSc in Biological Sciences at Plymouth University and has spent the last four years working in environmental education at The Field Studies Council and Farms for City Children, finding ways to share her love of wildlife. Alongside work, she is currently studying for a Masters in Sustainability and Ecology at the Centre for Alternative Technology in mid-Wales. In her spare time, you’ll find Fiona near the sea: walking her dog on the beach; on a headland scanning the horizon for whales and dolphins; or searching for rare birds on spring and autumn migration.
