New Conservation Officer for the Wild Trout Trust
Posted on April 12, 2017
The Wild Trout Trust has just appointed its seventh Conservation Officer, Rob Mungovan. Rob, currently an ecologist at South Cambs District Council, is a passionate river man, local campaigner for river conservation and trout fisherman. With 20 years of experience and many river improvement projects delivered, his professional and voluntary contribution to river conservation won him WTT’s Wild Trout Hero award in 2016.
Now, Rob has secured his dream job; to go out and work with angling clubs, landowners and the Environment Agency in Central and Eastern England, offering advice and practical help to improve rivers for wild trout and the habitats that they need.
Rob said, “I’m thrilled to be taken on by the Trust. For many years I have been impressed by the way they have been able to make a real difference at the ground level. They have improved great lengths of rivers, made weirs passable for many different fish and have been able to champion the cause to conserve the diverse wonderful wild trout populations of the UK.”
Rob is based on the Cambs/Herts border but a fair bit of his time will be spent working further east and north in England, especially in Lincolnshire. Rob takes up his post from 8 May 2017. His contact details will be available here from that date.
