Tom Handley


Tom Handley started writing as an intern for mongabay.com in the autumn of 2012.

Tom believes that the natural world can bestow untold benefits that we all should value and cherish as human beings. Yet our tenure of planet earth is burdened by the weight of successive failings and shortcomings. We are poisoning our planet. We are ravaging wild lands at an unprecedented rate. We are pillaging our oceans and defiling the atmosphere. Our political premises and economic doctrines may not be fit for purpose. And on top of all this, we are forgetting where we came from and becoming a danger to ourselves. Tom feels that defending any of these acts would amount to a foolhardy disregard of reality, and a flight from self-knowledge.

Tom is well placed to discuss nature and humanity’s place within it. He has an undergraduate degree from the University of Plymouth in Geography and recently graduated from University College London with a Master’s degree in Conservation. His studies have taken him to the Beijing Forest Ecosystem Research Station in China and Montes de Toledo in Spain (where he researched the status of a relic Iberian Lynx population outside the two known refuges in the south of Spain).

When Tom is not writing for mongabay.com, he works for the Thames Estuary Partnership, helping to develop a conservation plan for London’s iconic river. He currently lives in London although he calls Devon (in the southwest of England) home. His hobbies include football, socialising with friends, and meeting new people.
