Welcome to my personal website.
My name is Mark Cleaver, I have been working in the Environmental Conservation Sector for 18 years from a practical beginning as as Countryside Ranger, through Farm Manager with significant experience in conservation grazing to project development work in Biomass. During this time I have qualified to provide training and have delivered training and development from practical small holding and countryside skills to more ecologically focused work for example, identifying and managing veteran trees as part of the European funded VETree project
Currently, I work in the Humberhead Levels NIA for the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust as the Green Transport Corridors Project Officer, working along side Natural England, the Highways England and Network Rail to pilot new approached to managing the Transport Network Soft Estate to improve Ecological Networks, deliver enhanced Ecosystem Services and increase environmental resilience.
I am also a Founder and Director for Rooted in Hull, winner of the Global Innovation Award Smart Living Challenge. We established Rooted in Hull to set up a new and innovative Urban Agriculture Project in Hull.
I have an MSc in Protected Area Management and a significant CPD record.
