Personal profile

Research interests

Mrs Lucy Bearman-Brown is a senior lecturer in Animal Science, with specialism in mammalian ecology and wildlife conservation. Her passion for wildlife conservation led Lucy to undertake research in Nicaragua and South Africa, with the results being presented at conferences in Europe, the United States and Australia. Her current focus is on the impact of humans on the much-loved European hedgehog, for which Lucy has appeared on BBC 1’s Countryfile and BBC Radio 2’s The Chris Evans Breakfast Show, and in many publications including BBC Wildlife magazine and The Sunday Telegraph.

Lucy completed a BSc (Hons) in Animal Science at Nottingham Trent University where she focused her research on the water shrew. This led to her spending several months in the cloud forests of Nicaragua surveying the biodiversity of this little-studied Central American country, then completing her MRes in Biodiversity and Conservation at the University of Leeds in 2008. After teaching at Nottingham Trent University Lucy moved to Gloucester to join the team at Hartpury in 2010. Since then she has taught a variety of subjects, with particular favourites being Wildlife & Zoo Management and the overseas Field Course module, which is delivered at a private wildlife reserve in South Africa.
