Ranger Profile

Trudi Clarke, Ranger (c) Sam Payne KWMC

My name is Trudi Clarke. I’m an environmental biologist with many years’ experience in nature reserve management and field biology: I have worked with Sandwich terns on Anglesey; saltmarsh birds, plants and Natterjack toads in Dorset; mice on St Kilda and rare plants in southern Portugal. Most recently, I have been running guided wildlife walks in Bristol, while studying for an MSc in Applied Geographic Information Systems (GIS).

I’ve had a special affinity for the wildlife and communities of the Scottish Western Isles since my first visit to Islay in 2006. I have visited the Outer Hebrides twice and returned to Islay and Jura nearly ten times now. In 2012, I spent four weeks on St Kilda working as a field research assistant for the St Kilda Mouse Project.
