Biodiversity Talk by Dr Sam Kelly MCIEEM

Dr Sam Kelly MCIEEM, Coombes

Pricinpal Ecologist at Coombes UK

Sam has been working in ecology for over 20 years and has worked on projects spanning the UK and India. She studied her PhD at Liverpool University, which looked at the impacts of invasive pond weed on newt breeding and has gone on to specialise further in bat, dormouse and reptile ecology, especially the European adder. She is a passionate advocate for ecological sustainability and engagement and connectedness with the natural world, is a trustee of ARG UK and an active member of several local conservation groups. 

I work as Principal Ecologist for Coombes UK, where I specialise in protected species and botanical surveys across the south of England. I am a passionate naturalist, with particular interest in the conservation of adders and other native reptiles, although my roots lay in aquatic botany and amphibian breeding conservation. I have been a trustee of Amphibian and Reptile Groups of the UK (ARG UK) since 2019 and am Secretary of Sussex Amphibian and Reptile Group (SxARG), with whom I engage in research into adder conservation, public engagement and connectedness to nature.
