Jeremy Lindsell

Director of Science and Conservation

Jeremy Lindsell is a conservation scientist who has been working on globally threatened species and tropical forest conservation for over 20 years. He leads the Science and Conservation team of A Rocha International which oversees the global conservation programmes of the A Rocha family, notably on African Forests and Marine Conservation. 

He has been closely involved with A Rocha’s major campaign to protect the Atewa Forest in Ghana, leading field research in the forest, supervising studies, raising funds and building an international coalition to support the conservation of this highly distinctive forest. 

Jeremy writes: ‘With A Rocha I most enjoy visiting project sites. In Kenya, arriving at the Dakatcha Nature Reserve which A Rocha has established (to protect dry coastal woodland from clearance for pineapple plantations) was unforgettable. We drove for a long time through farmland and fragmented woodland in quite a remote area, and then suddenly we were at the reserve, where the woodland is pretty much intact.’

Jeremy’s past experience has included the conservation of long distance migrants, understanding the biodiversity importance of protected, unprotected and degraded tropical forests, and accounting for the distribution of tropical forest biomass. He has worked in a number of countries in West and East Africa, the Middle East and in Southeast Asia, including a period living in Uganda. He holds a degree in Geography from the University of Cambridge and a PhD in Zoology (Ornithology) from the University of Oxford. He lives near to one of the largest fenland restoration projects in the UK where his garden bird and moth lists continue to grow.
