Chris Packham succeeds Liza Goddard
Liza has just headed a highly successful 40th anniversary appeal for the wildlife charity as the culmination of nine years in the role.
“She has been a tremendous, active advocate for the Trust and we are extremely grateful for all she has done,” said Chairman Barbara Handley.
Chris has supported the Trust since his youth when he and fellow members helped to warden the UK’s remnant population of red kites, which were just hanging on in mid Wales.
More recently he has given up his time to help the Trust in a number of ways, including launching its Adopt a Box scheme in 1992.
