Hi, my name is Tricia Parish, and I own and run Deep in Nature!

I’m an experienced educator and conservationist with an MSc in Primate Conservation from Oxford Brookes University, where I specialised in conservation education. I’ve traveled extensively in Asia running wildlife conservation workshops, and gained practical experience of animal handling and welfare, working as a zookeeper in animal collections around the world.

After my son was born, I retrained as a Montessori teacher and have spent several years working with local children in Harpenden, where I also led a Beaver Scout colony.

I set up Deep in Nature to share my passion for nature with local children. I want to help connect them to the natural world, and to develop a responsible and affectionate relationship with the world around them.
