Louise Hughes

Louise May Hughes grew up in Devon, in southwest England, where she spent much of her childhood exploring Exmoor and the surrounding countryside on foot. The rambling opened her eyes to the wonders of the natural world, but it was on a volunteer expedition to Namibia where she realized she wanted to take that a step further to work in some aspect of conservation.

Her path through university was winding. She started out studying furniture design before switching gears to embark on a zoological conservation degree in Cornwall. After graduation, Louise set out for Sal, in the Cape Verde islands, to work a project involving loggerhead turtle and ringing Kentish plover conservation. Then, while working for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, she gained a wide-reaching knowledge base that led to becoming staff naturalist at the Aigas Field Center. Merging her guiding and conservation expertise, Louise was also responsible for the Scottish wildcat breeding program during her time at the center.

Louise has guided throughout the Scottish Highlands and islands, in addition to leading travelers as a naturalist in Hungary and Yellowstone National Park. In her extensive travels, many of her favorite wildlife sightings have been of native wildlife in the Highlands, whether watching otters feast on a fish just feet away or black grouse lekking in the early morning mist. In her spare time, you’ll find Louise hiking, drawing and painting, keeping her creative side alight.

Praise from Nat Hab travelers:
