Phil Maund - Estate Ranger

Phil is the newest member of our Ranger Team following moving to the Islands in March 2018. Despite a fairly unusual introduction to Scilly (he arrived shortly before it snowed!) he's now enjoying the blustery out doors and getting to know Scilly's wildlife and habitats.

After originally training to become a professional musician, I made a career change into wildlife conservation and haven't looked back. I studied Ecology and Environmental Resource Management in Cornwall a few years ago and worked in Hampshire for a time. I was thrilled to have been successful in landing this job with the Wildlife Trust, which has brought me back to my adopted home-county!

Aside from enjoying my job and playing my guitars year-round, I also enjoy carrying out bumblebee surveys in the summer and wood-carving in the winter.
