Ben joined Naturetrek after completing a master’s degree at UCL in ‘Biodiversity, Evolution & Conservation’, having previously studied Natural Sciences at Cambridge. He grew up on the Isle of Purbeck in Dorset – the UK’s most biodiverse area; this, along with a childhood visit to the Galapagos Islands, helped to trigger his love of natural history, and he has since travelled widely in search of wildlife; some of Ben’s favourite encounters during that time have been with pangolins and Yellow-headed Picathartes in Ghana, African Wild Dogs in Botswana, Mountain Gorillas and Shoebills in Uganda, Tigers in India, orangutans in Sumatra, and Blue Whales in the Azores. When not in the field, Ben works within the busy operations team at the Naturetrek office in Chawton.
