Lucy Mason

Lucy completed her undergraduate degree at the University of the West of England. During this time Lucy conducted a research project investigating how the quality of green infrastructure influenced bat activity in existing housing developments in south west of England. This study aimed to increase our understanding of species-specific responses to different levels of green infrastructure, but also to evaluate the efficacy of development planning tools in relation to bat activity and diversity.

Following her graduation in the Summer of 2020, Lucy now works as a Post Graduate Research Assistant with the Bat Conservation Research Lab coordinating the delivery of the study investigating winter bat activity and the importance of connectivity features in Somerset, in partnership with North Somerset Council.
