Staff and management

GCER is hosted by Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust, who employ our staff directly and provide support for admin, finance and volunteer coordination, in addition to sharing office space. Whilst functioning as a department of the Wildlife Trust, GCER also liaises with a wide range of external stakeholders. These include local planning authorities, national conservation agencies, commercial data users, project partners and local experts.

Zak Mitchell
GIS Officer

GIS mapping, modelling and analysis. Zak works part-time for GCER and other staff in the GWT Evidence Team. If you get a farm map, Nature Recovery Network layer or other fancy GIS work Zak has probably either created it or contributed to it!

GCER Volunteers

We couldn't run GCER without the help of our fantastic volunteers!

Some stay and contribute for years, others work on a specific project for a fixed time, or help us when they've got a few days spare. Some return for a few days, year after year. Some managed to keep doing remote work for GCER despite the Covid-19 lockdowns. All are invaluable for helping to keep up with the neverending tasks of data entry, document scanning and map digitising that go to make up our unique information resource.
