A FdSc Zoological Conservation student whilst at Newquay, Matt went on to complete a BSc In Environmental Resource Management. “SINNG has provided me with valuable practical and academic based knowledge on the impacts that invasive non-native plants and animals have on the natural environment and the mitigation measures used to irradiate and monitor them in the future. My speciality interest lies with managing and conserving freshwater habitats for wildlife and many of SINNG’s project centre on this environment. My work with this amazing group has seen me producing educational material to use in school workshops on a national scale and I’m proud to have provided help to further the group’s overall objective of education through action”.
