Susie Phillips - Michael Hearn Intern
Susie has a longstanding interest in conservation and travel. This passion led her to study Conservation Biology and Ecology at the University of Exeter. The three years studying in Cornwall could not keep her fixed in the UK and instead her research took her all over the world, including areas in Borneo, Iceland and Madagascar. Whilst travelling and studying for her degree she also lead and developed the campus expedition society ‘Fxpeditions’ that helped students organise their own conservation research trips across the globe.
Since graduating in June 2016 Susie has worked for Cheshire Wildlife Trust as a membership recruiter and volunteered as a Monitoring and Surveying Trainee in addition to other volunteering roles with local wildlife groups and the World Museum in Liverpool.
Susie joined Save the Rhino in September 2017. She is leading on coordinating all the amazing Save the Rhino London Marathon runners for 2018, as well as dealing with merchandise and membership, and assisting with fundraising tasks and general office admin.
In true Susie style she will be off on another adventure to Namibia to work with Save the Rhino Trust in autumn 2018.
