|In one sentence, describe why you're a #ConservationOptimist:||
Because since I was a little boy I have loved nature and want to do all I can to help animals and plants thrive.
I am an author, freelance writer, journalist, singer-songwriter, poet, public speaker and naturalist. I am originally from Cardiff but have lived in Tenerife for 9 years and am now based in Portugal. I have written and given talks on butterfly gardening and conservation, and the flora and fauna of Tenerife, as well as having books about herbs. As a singer-songwriter I am currently raising awareness about plastic pollution with a song entitled Where Does All The Plastic Go?
