Lois Waite

River Intern (North)

Believe it or not my background is in hospitality! After working in the sector for 10 years, I decided to try studying when the pandemic hit. I joined Aberystwyth Uni to study Plant Biology. When I saw SRT were advertising an intern role, I thought it would be a great way to increase my knowledge and skills of on the ground ecology and conservation work. My role as the River intern for the North of the catchment involves supporting project delivery for our catchment officers in Llanfair Caerenion, LLanerfyl, Newtown, Foel and Llangadfan. I spend lots of my free time outdoors connecting with nature. I wanted a job where I could help preserve those natural environments, restore ecosystems, and enhance biodiversity. This job does just that!
