Nick’s experience and authoritative advice on issues related to marine mammals has been sought by many organisations over the years and has had a strong influence on conservation policy.
Now aged 72, Nick’s infectious enthusiasm has been raising people’s awareness of the need for conservation ever since childhood. He spent 30 years as a GP and there is certainly a ‘doctorly’ aura of kindliness, reassurance and gentle authority about the way he chairs meetings and presents the case for conservation.
Mark Nicholson, Chair of Trustees at Cornwall Wildlife Trust says,
“Nick’s dedication, ingenuity, and infectious enthusiasm have been a great inspiration to many people – myself included. This latest award for his lifetime of commitment and achievement is richly deserved, and I’m sure he will continue to make significant breakthroughs in his future conservation work.”
