Countryside Ranger and Conservationist
As a countryside ranger, Ajay has earned respect as the ranger on Britain’s first coastal reserve, Blakeney Point. He has also worked as reserve manager at Lindisfarne. Ajay currently works at Wicken Fen, Britain’s very first nature reserve, alongside 100 Konik ponies and 50 Highland cattle.
Ajay is an engaging speaker, drawing on his experiences as a warden as well as authoring magazine articles and scientific reports.
Growing up in East Anglia, Ajay became interested in wetland birds and developed a love for the Fenland landscape and a passion for its conservation and restoration. Through his career in nature conservation, he went on to work with seabirds, in particular terns; monitoring their breeding behaviour and contributing to national monitoring programmes. He has also studied wildflowers and, of course, seals; managing and studying England’s largest Grey Seal rookery.
