I joined the club when I was in Primary 5. I had fun learning about the nature and playing wildlife games. I had always said that I wanted to help at Earth Calling once I went to high school and eventually volunteered in S3. I am now working towards my Silver Duke of Edinburgh award and using my wildlife club hours for my volunteering section. I love helping the younger members of the club with their learning and activities. My favourite activities involve creating things, so its great fun to help the members build shelters and make artwork when we visit the woods, beach and river. In my spare time I love to draw, paint and sew and when I leave school I’d like to study biological science then go into medicine or forensics.
Senior Environmental Educator
Izzy spent most of her childhood running round fields, jumping in rivers and living in one particularly beautiful willow tree, as well as making friends with a small holly bush on her way to school. After deciding that she wanted to save the world, she completed a Masters in Environmental Sustainability, alongside working as a baker and a nanny. After volunteering with Trees for Life and the National Forest, she found her way to Earth Calling, where she hopes to inspire others with her love for the environment and wild places. One of her favourite pastimes is wild swimming, and she isn’t fazed by the Scottish climate, having once swam in a glacier lake in Canada. She dreams of one day being deserted on an island to really test out her bushcraft skills!
