Growing up between rural North Wales and the North of Scotland, Meggie spent most of her childhood outdoors, either running a little wild with her three other siblings or helping her parents with their various conservation projects – more often than not – both at the same time. After leaving school, Meggie spent ten wonderful months in India, Australia, New Zealand and Eastern Europe – working, volunteering and travelling. Upon her return, she studied history and politics at Newcastle University followed by a master’s in journalism at Edinburgh Napier.
Before joining the Pelorus Foundation, Meggie was based in Kathmandu working as a research and communications intern for the United Nations Regional Centre for Peace and Disarmament. From gaining hands-on experience to witnessing the destruction of our planet in various locations around the world, Meggie developed a strong desire to work in environmental conservation.
