My name is Lisa Morgan and I am really excited to be re-joining The Wildlife Trust South and West Wales as Head of Islands and Marine. It is a difficult and challenging time to be starting a new job, but my ‘virtual’ induction is going well and the WTSWW team have all been incredibly supportive.
My career in conservation actually started with the Trust back in 2001 when I spent my first season on Skokholm as an Assistant Warden. The three months I spent on Dream Island were the most influential of my life and shaped my future career, where I chose to live and my love of all things marine, especially the seabirds and seals that I was privileged to study and protect. After two informative years on Skokholm I jumped across to Skomer where I was the seabird fieldworker and assistant warden for two years. Then in 2005, I moved a little further north to Ramsey Island where I was the RSPB warden for nearly 14 years.
In my new role, I’ll be supporting the islands and the excellent Living Seas project in Cardigan Bay. The aim is to link up the work that is happening around the coastline and highlight the very real pressures that face our marine environment.
I hope to meet many of you in the months to come, hopefully on a boat or cliff-top, as life slowly returns to normal.
We are delighted to welcome Lisa to our WILD family!
