Summary

Lucas is a bird ecologist with a particular interest in shorebirds. He has more than 15 years' experience in ornithological field studies.

His current work focuses on the effects and impacts of human-related activities on seabirds and waterbirds, including offshore wind farms, port developments and habitat restoration in estuaries.

Awarded more than 2 million of funding from the offshore wind industry to carry out baseline characterisation studies and post-construction seabird monitoring at offshore wind farms since 2002.
