Outside of her television work, Gillian is the Vice President of the Wildlife Trusts and applies her biology and media experience to work closely as patron and/or ambassador with a number of international, national and local organisations in Cornwall where she now lives.  These include Buglife, Cool Earth, Cornwall Seal Group Research Trust, Wild Otter Trust UK, Mount Kenya Trust & Black Voices Cornwall.  She also lends her time and is to support the work of the Marine Strandings Network, Cornwall Hugs Grenfell, Shelterbox, Surfers Against Sewage and the newly formed Beaver Trust.

 

Whether from the natural world or the human world, she is drawn to the rich vein of stories that are full of universal themes of awe and wonder, defeat and victory, struggle and survival.  As a scientist, she is committed to tracking down and sharing evidence of hope.  It’s why she defiantly remains an optimist (on most days).
