Madison Bowden-Parry

I'm Madi, a naturalist, conservationist, behavioural ecologist, science communicator, community conservationist and marine photographer from South Wales.

An enthusiastic conservationist with experience in scientific research (MSc with the University of Exeter in Evolutionary and Behavioural Ecology), community-based conservation (project management), community engagement and organising (events/campaign coordination and fundraising facilitation) and UW camera operating (BA (Hons) in Marine and Natural History Photography at Falmouth University).

My practical experience within community-based conservation has naturally progressed my interests to working within both the natural and social sciences for nature's recovery.


I am interested in restoration ecology and management, creating nature recovery networks and the ways in which we can protect and use nature sustainably to build resilience for wild spaces, wildlife and people. I am particularly interested in utilising the methods and approaches that include working holistically with communities and local people.

I'm a keen science communicator currently working within an award winning marketing team at the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales. I also enjoy wildlife presenting and have worked with Apeks/Aqualung, BBC Wales, ITV, Wales Online, The Wildlife Trusts and more.
