Assistant Project Officer
Fern gained a BSc in Biology from the University of Sheffield, graduating in 2018. After university, she worked abroad as both a rep for ski tour operators, and as a divemaster in Mozambique. While there, she assisted with the conservation efforts of the Marine Megafauna Foundation, helping to train scientific divers and photograph mantas and smalleye stingray. During the pandemic, she returned to the UK and worked as a kitchen designer before starting at the Yorkshire Dales Rivers Trust in September 2021.
In her spare time, Fern enjoys rock climbing, foraging, freediving and looking after her vegetable garden alongside her cats, dog and chickens.
