Lucy Lapwing - Wildlife and Science Communicator

Love science and conservation? Want to discover new ways to protect our species? Elle Kaye chats with guests who work within the science genre, but whose job titles may need a little unpacking. Strap in for entomology, taxidermy, diaphonization, pet remains, human pathology and all those that work with specimens. In episode 021 Elle chats with Lucy about growing up in rural England and how this environment had an effect on her interests and career. She discusses the medical diagnosis which took her away from work and into the world of science communication, and how that has developed since her health has improved. Lucy also shares her advice for those wanting to feel a deeper connection to nature at home and how she combats eco-anxieties.
