Environmental Science and Sustainability Programme Lead

Adam is an experienced practitioner in the fields of conservation and wildlife and is the Programme Lead on the College’s Foundation Degree (FdSc) Environmental Science and Sustainability course.

Adam studied Ecology and Conservation at the University of Edinburgh and spent several years working for international non-governmental organisations (NGOs). He previously worked as the Monitoring Coordinator of the Sea Turtle Protection Society of Greece, has monitored migratory whales and dolphins in the Atlantic Ocean, collaborated with the Marine Conservation Society supporting their ‘Capturing our Coast’ project, and most recently was invited to join the Association for Nature Wolf.

Alongside teaching at the College, Adam is also employed by Wildlife Seminars – a large carnivore conservation group with a focus on wolves, bears and lynxes in the Western Carpathians mountain range in Eastern Europe – and takes clients out to teach them about field biology and tracking skills for large carnivores. He is also an ambassador for the Sea Turtle Protection Society, Youth Coordinator for the World Wildlife Fund and was granted member status to the Royal Society of Biologists 2017.

Adam is a qualified Technical Trimix Diver, with a strong interest in shipwrecks. He has dived the D-Day wrecks in Normandy, as well as the pre-1920 wrecks of the Inner Hebrides in Scotland. He has travelled extensively and has visited nearly 50 countries to date.

Adam has had several pieces of work published for the Mammal Society - Hazel Dormice in the UK (2017) and Wiltshire Hedgehog Project (2018) – as well as an independent film on sea turtle conservation entitled ‘The Archelon Bubble’ (2008). He also contributed to ‘Mammals of Wiltshire Atlas’ (2018).

"Talking to Adam inspires me as he has so many amazing stories from working around the world and helping different wildlife. It’s a really interesting subject in itself and Adam is an amazing lecturer, the best!"
