About

Welcome to A Wild Life! My name is Richard, and I’m the writer behind this blog. For most of my career, I specialised in reptile and invertebrate ecology and worked on various projects for governments, NGOs, and academia – including describing two new species of cobra. Today, I run a successful horticultural business with clients that include the Wildlife Trust, The Snowdonia Society, and a Botanic Garden. As a member of the Chartered Institute of Horticulture, I am dedicated to promoting and advancing the science, art, and practice of horticulture.

With a master’s degree in ecology, I’m passionate about sharing my knowledge and experiences with others. My goal with this blog is to provide a range of articles on the biology, ecology, and conservation of plants and animals, as well as topics relating to horticulture and habitat management.

Through my writing, I hope to share my passion for nature and inspire others to appreciate and protect the incredible biodiversity of our planet. From fascinating animal behavior to the latest conservation research, as well as practical tips on gardening and horticulture, I aim to provide engaging and informative content that will appeal to both casual nature enthusiasts and fellow scientists alike.

Thank you for visiting A Wild Life, and I hope you’ll join me on this journey of discovery and appreciation for the natural world.

  1. This is a very inspiring About section! I’m currently moving into freelance writing, and one of the things I’d like to do is tell the stories of people who live close to nature: scientists, conservationists, outdoors-people, photographers – anybody; the point is to show readers that the relationship between ourselves and nature doesn’t always have to be exploitative.

    If you send me a short email at jaguarandallies [at] gmail [dot] com, I’d love to chat more about you and your story. I can’t promise anything big will come of it, but it won’t hurt to chat and see where it leads.

    Thanks for following me!
