Darren Mason - Head Ranger

With a wealth of experience in the conservation sector, Darren puts his knowledge to good use within the Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust.


Darren started as Head Ranger with the Trust in January 2015 and has 17 years experience in conservation land management having worked previously for 2 Wildlife Trust consultancies and running his own countryside management business. His role includes the creation of a new management plan based on and associated with the Trusts environmental stewardship scheme and he is responsible for the day to day management and training of the Ranger Team. One of Darren's specialisms is design and build of countryside furniture such as boardwalks, bridges and bird hides; a useful skill to have seeing as most of these fixtures on Scilly need replacing!
