My name is Tristan Reid and I am ‘The Inked Naturalist‘!
I have had a passion for natural history since a very young age; this passion saw me working as reserve wardens at various nature reserves for many years. I now work as a freelance ecologist as well as fitting in a bit of writing when time allows. If you visit my ‘Talks page‘ you will see that I can offer a inspiring and thought provoking talk my project ‘giving my right arm’ project that is seeing me being tattooed with over twenty species of birds to raise awareness of the biodiversity disaster currently ongoing in Turkey and to raise much needed funds for the Birdlife International partner in Turkey; Doğa Derneği.
The main interest on this site to many, will hopefully be my regularly updated blog! Here there are regular updates of my wildlife adventures, thoughts and of course tattoo progress!
I hope you enjoy reading my ramblings!
