Gill Perkins

CEO, Bumblebee Conservation Trust


Gill has been an enthusiastic conservationist from a young age, starting with building footpaths in Devon. She has been a volunteer, an ecologist for the Lake District Special Planning Board and the highlight of her early career, was counting puffins for the Icelandic National Park (there were about a quarter of a million). After a career in business Gill eventually found her way back to conservation taking a sabbatical in Borneo working with a local community to restore rain forests and reporting to the United Nations on the project. As CEO for the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, she has found the perfect channel through which to promote her passion for bumblebees and their protection.
