With a first degree in human sciences and a Masters in applied environmental biology, Liz spent 25 years teaching biology and environmental science at a college in Manchester. She then worked for environmentally-based charitable organisations developing and running first, a national sustainable energy schools education program and then, a Masters level training scheme in recycling for professionals.
Liz has travelled extensively throughout Europe, the Americas and, of course, Australia. Now retired, she has more time to indulge her interest in travelling to see world wildlife; recent trips have included the Galapagos Islands of Ecuador with their unique wildlife and the Virunga mountains of Uganda, home to the world’s remaining mountain gorillas. She also loves gardening, having recently turned the ‘carpark’ at the rear of their restored Victorian villa into a wildlife-friendly oasis.
