Joshua Styles is an award-winning new face in the world of botany and conservation. At the age of just 25, he has recently added Countryfile and Springwatch, a new Radio 4 documentary, and a series of feature reports for Channel 4 News to his ever-growing list of credits.
He recently won the ‘CIEEM Best Practice Small-Scale Nature Conservation Award’, and was the ‘Echo Environmental Awards: Environmental Champion’ winner. Joshua is one of less than 40 people in the country, and the youngest person ever, to have received a level 6 Field Identification Skills Certification (FISC) from the Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland. The FISC is a test devised to measure one’s botanical skill level, on a scale from 1 (beginner) to 5 (professional). A level 6 is only awarded in exceptional cases; which clearly Joshua is. This significant milestone indicates an individual is likely to be commissioned nationally to survey plants.
During COVID-19 restrictions we went virtual and used the opportunity to get speakers from further afar. You can watch these talks via our YouTube channel.
