Dr Tim Mackrill

Founder - The Osprey Leadership Foundation

Tim managed the Rutland Osprey Project for more than ten years, having first got involved as a volunteer when he was 15 years old. It was those early experiences at Rutland Water that have shaped his career and inspired him to set-up the Osprey Leadership Foundation. He now works as a freelance nature conservationist, including with the Roy Dennis Wildlife Foundation on various species recovery projects, including the second English Osprey translocation at Poole Harbour in Dorset and the Isle of Wight White Tailed Eagle reintroduction. He recently completed a PhD on Osprey migration. Tim is author of The Rutland Water Ospreys that was published by Bloomsbury in 2013 and RSBP Spotlight Ospreys which was published in May 2019. Tim has travelled widely in West Africa to study Ospreys

Becky Park

Programme Manager - The Osprey Leadership Foundation

Becky is a nature conservationist whose strengths lie in community engagement. Becky has spent the last 10 years working on projects which inspire and empower others to make positive change for wildlife in the UK and has worked with thousands of people from a variety of backgrounds and organisations along the way. At such a crucial time for nature conservation, Becky believes that it is the way we engage others that is key to changing attitudes towards protecting wildlife and wild places around the world. Whether you’re part of the grass roots movement or involved in top-down decision making you can influence others, but you need to be equipped with the right skills to be successful. Future nature conservationists face huge challenges, and Becky is passionate about ensuring they have the broad range of skills they need to tackle them.
