Matthew Capper 001

A professional conservationist, Matthew was born in Stamford and grew up with Rutland Water on the doorstep where he volunteered during his teenage years and developed his lifelong interest in birds and other wildlife. After a Geography degree at Sheffield University he settled in the Peak District and was soon involved in bird of prey protection, the National Park Ranger Service and the local birding scene. Matthew joined the RSPB in 2006 and managed people engagement projects across the north of England such as the Lake District Osprey Project. Passionate about connecting people with nature, he has led walks, activities and delivered talks for many organisations such as local bird groups, Wildlife Trusts, the National Trust and the RSPB. More recently Matthew was Senior Site Manager for the RSPB’s Dearne Valley nature reserves in Yorkshire including their flagship Old Moor reserve. He is currently Area Conservation Manager for the RSPB covering Yorkshire, the Humber and the Peak District and a Director of the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust. He has travelled widely in Europe and the United States.
