About Me

My name is Tristan Reid and I am a passionate conservationist. I have worked in the wildlife industry for the past twenty years or so and can never imagine doing anything else. I currently work as a freelance ecologist with a specialism in birds.

I enjoy trails running and I am training to run ultra distances after a dip in fitness.

I am an experienced public speaker, having given many talks about my conservation projects throughout the UK and Europe. You can find out more about these talks via the talks tab in the menu section of this website.

I have bipolar disorder, which I am currently managing reasonably well. This has made me much more aware of the struggles people have on a daily basis. I like to see myself as an advocate of mental health.

This website is still in its infancy, but it is aimed to documents conservation stories world wide and of course my own adventures.
