On completing his M.Sc. in Environmental Change and Management at the University of Oxford, Nick Acheson moved to Bolivia where for ten years he worked in wildlife conservation on projects including the declaration of the Bolivian Pantanal as a Ramsar site (WWF Bolivia), the creation of a major protected area in the Tucabaca Valley (Fundación para la Conservación del Bosque Chiquitano) and the co-ordination of the Neotropical Aquatic Bird Census (Wetlands International). It was also here that he began leading wildlife-watching holidays. Since his return to the UK, he has worked for a further ten years in wildlife conservation, principally with Norfolk Wildlife Trust, The Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts and the Hawk and Owl Trust. In this time he has also led wildlife-watching tours and activities on all seven continents. Maintaining strong links with conservation organisations in the UK and abroad, and still regularly travelling in search of wildlife, Nick has taught in the Higher Education team at Easton College since January 2018.
