Former Student Ryan Eddowes Shares Incredible Wildlife Experiences

Ryan Eddowes visited Coppice and shared the many exciting opportunities he has had travelling the world participating in environmental projects.

He left Coppice in 2013 and has studied Zoology and Herpetology (study of amphibians and reptiles) at Bangor University. He graduates this year and begins his career as a wildlife cameraman. He will be jetting off to South Africa, Tenerife, Vietnam and Burma to film various wildlife in their natural habitats including investigating sleep patterns of whales. He shared behind the scenes stories from his first film ‘Secrets of the Savannah’ which was fascinating.

You can view a short clip of ‘Secrets of the Savannah’ below. Ryan also shared the importance of reducing plastic waste and educated Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 about the impact plastic waste and litter is having on our environment and wildlife.

To think Ryan was once a shy, quiet and reserved Coppice student and now has taken every opportunity to have a career of his dreams. Ryan is an inspiration! We are all very proud of him and can’t wait to hear updates on his adventures ahead!
