Luke attended Manchester Metropolitan University where he secured a first class BSc (Hons) in Ecology & Conservation. He followed this up with a MRes in Ecology & Environmental Biology from Glasgow University.
Luke was a keen volunteer at the Lancashire Wildlife Trust before becoming an Assistant Ecologist for an environmental consultancy. From 2021 he worked at the Loch Lomond Fisheries Trust on a trainee biologist programme where he received a wide range of training and developed various skills including INNS control, habitat restoration, smolt tracking and habitat surveys.
In August 2022 he joined GFT to take on the role of 'Habitats and Climate Resilience Officer'.
In his spare time Luke is a keen naturalist and enjoys combining time spent out in nature with outdoor pursuits such as surfing, climbing, hiking and fly-fishing.
On Saturday 26th August we held our annual Kirkcowan Fishing Competition. 35 adults and 12 juniors entered the competition this year, providing a fund of £211 that is put back into the event via prizes and a buffet.
