Due to unforeseen circumstances, this talk has been postponed from Wednesday 5 October. We hope you can join us in November (page updated 4 October 2022).
Harry Barton is the Chief Executive of Devon Wildlife Trust. In this presentation, he will discuss the threats that face our wildlife and how we can all take action to help wildlife in urban places like Plymouth.
Inspiring examples of what has been achieved elsewhere can help give us ideas about what is possible.
Harry has been Chief Executive of Devon Wildlife Trust since 2011. During that time the organisation has grown considerably, taking on substantial new nature reserves including the Exeter Valley Parks and pioneering the reintroduction of the beaver in England. Harry has formerly worked at the Earth Trust in Oxfordshire, Wiltshire Wildlife Trust and Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. He served as a trustee of The Wildlife Trusts, the national movement of 47 local Wildlife Trusts covering all parts of the UK, and is Deputy Chair of the Devon Local Nature Partnership. Harry has a BSc in Geography from Durham University and an MSc in Environmental Policy from Wye College, University of London. Harry’s other interest include international development, disability and special needs, music, running, cycling and martial arts.
