Bursary Winner

By November 23, 2020Blog

We are delighted to announce, Charlotte Burgoine, as the 2020 winner of our bursary award.

Charlotte is undertaking the third year of a Wildlife Ecology and Conservation degree at Sparsholt University. Her interests include conservation of farmland environments, invasive non-native species and birdwatching.

Charlotte is doing her dissertation research on the impacts of Guernsey’s hedge-cutting regime on biodiversity. We shall be interested to see the results from that important work.

“I wanted to do something unique to the island – to combine my own interests with the wildlife found on Guernsey. I have decided to study the impacts of hedge cutting on the biodiversity of hedges, as after some research I discovered that the hedge cutting regime for Guernsey is unique compared to England.” I would like to return home to work in Guernsey, after graduation, and be responsible for safeguarding the island’s wildlife for future generations”
