Lucy is passionate about landscape and wildlife and believes that protected landscapes have a critical role to play in the nation’s future. She believe that, working together, AONB partnerships can achieve much more to realise positive benefits for biodiversity, the economy and people’s health and wellbeing.

She also worked in a range of different organisations and settings including the RSPB, Lancashire Youth and Community Services and Oxford University Wildlife Conservation Research Unit.
