Will Richard

Agent: Megan Carroll

Will Richard is a writer and zoologist. He began in the farmyard at five, and thirteen years later studied zoology at the University of Oxford before becoming a zookeeper at London Zoo. He has since worked at the Headquarters of the International Union for Conservation of Nature in Switzerland, at the Zoological Society of London, in natural history museums and was elected a Fellow of the Linnean Society in 2016.

Now based in the UK, Will continues his work in conservation internationally and writes a lot about why there are fewer animals than there used to be, why it matters, and what we can all do to change that.
