Jacob Loughran

Catchment Assistant

I studied a BSc International Disaster Management, with post-disaster reconstruction field experience. I then went on to complete an MSc in Agroecology, Water and Food Sovereignty, with field research into eco-friendly farming. I joined the trust as the River intern for the South of the catchment in 2023, which involved supporting projects from Warwickshire Avon, Black Country and down to the Severn Vale. In 2024 I moved up to the Catchment Assistant role. Working at SRT gives me the opportunity to make a positive impact for wildlife at home in the UK every day. I enjoy working alongside farmers and other land stewards to enhance the ecological resilience of riverside farming.
