Hi i’m Clara, the new community ranger for the John Muir Trust based out here on the Western Isles, working between the North Harris Trust, West Harris Trust and Galson Estate Trust. My duties will be varied, from working with volunteer groups, leading guided walks and completing some habitat monitoring work. All of which I look forward to starting with any luck in the near future.
I grew up much further south on the Isle of Wight before moving to Scotland to undertake a BSc in conservation biology at University in Stirling and have been living in Caithness and Sutherland for the past year or so. I have a strong interest in wildlife conservation and the outdoors in general, spending much of my time out walking or looking for wildlife. I look forward to working and getting to know the islands and community during my time here.
