Appointment of new Kent Wildlife Trustee

Kent Wildlife Trust is pleased to announce the appointment of Richard Kinzler from Pegwell Bay as Trustee following his election at the Trust’s AGM at Darwin College, University of Kent, Canterbury, last Saturday (22nd September).

American-born Richard Kinzler, whose profession is in the orthopaedic industry as an Orthopaedic Specialist, said: “My interest with all aspects of wildlife started when I lived in North America and never really stopped when I moved to Pegwell. I am delighted to join the Kent Wildlife Trust Board of Trustees dedicated to protecting wildlife and wild habitats for everyone to enjoy.”

In his spare time, Richard’s interests have focused on wildlife conservation. He took a sabbatical as a Biodiversity Warden for Sandwich & Pegwell Bay Nature Reserve in 2009 but, since 2006, has been performing a variety of volunteering roles for the Trust such as environmental management, field recording and conducting guided walks.
