About Roselle Chapman – Senior Community Ecologist at Wild Oxfordshire

Roselle’s fascination for wildlife was developed whilst growing up on a farm in Norfolk and rock pooling on holiday in Jersey. She has a BSc Hons in Marine Biology and studied bumble bee ecology and genetics for her Ph.D. Roselle has worked in field biology and conservation biology for twenty five years. She has two children and lives at the foot of the Chiltern Hills. “I am very excited about Wild Oxfordshire’s aspirations to build a better future for the county’s wildlife by helping local communities to identify, protect and enhance a broad range of green spaces, whether this is part of a targeted initiative or during the creation of their Neighbourhood plan. As Community Ecologist, my aim is to help community groups record and map their green space and to provide monitoring and management advice where needed.”
