Hugo Rainey
Senior Technical Advisor - Seascape
Hugo Rainey has been studying wildlife since a very young age and has worked in many parts of Africa and Asia. He has a particular love for African birds and mammals and has surveyed them across the continent. Hugo completed his PhD on the interactions of African hornbills with predators and primates at the University of St Andrews in Scotland. Following this, he started work for WCS as director of Lac Télé Community Reserve which lies in the world’s largest swamp forest in Republic of Congo. During his four years in the swamps he was a leading member of the WCS team which found over 125,000 gorillas in northern Congo. After this he led management of the Northern Plains landscape in Cambodia for WCS for four years. Most recently, Hugo spent two years with The Biodiversity Consultancy in Cambridge providing strategic advice to some of the world’s largest companies. This has included supporting mitigation of impacts of extractive industry projects on biodiversity across Africa and developing policy on corporate best practice for biodiversity management. Hugo has published over 20 peer-reviewed papers on the conservation and ecology of wildlife and habitats in Africa and Asia. His scientific background as well as his practical skills are important components of the experience he brings to WCS as a Conservationist.
