Sue Goodfellow

Sue worked for the Dartmoor National Park Authority for over 30 years, as an ecologist and latterly as Director of Park Management and Director of Conservation. In these roles she had overall responsibility for wildlife, archaeology, historic buildings, forestry, agriculture, recreation and tourism and education (including visitor centres and guided walks). She is now a freelance environmental consultant, specialising in protected area management. Sue is also currently the Chair of the Devon Local Nature Partnership, a Director of Europarc Atlantic Isles and a Trustee of the Devon Wildlife Trust. She has contributed to many books and publications on Dartmoor, including a chapter on the ‘Flora of Dartmoor’ for the new ‘Flora of Devon’ (soon to be published).

Sue has led guided walks for many years for a wide variety of audiences, specializing particularly in ecology and conservation management. She knows the Dartmoor landscape and its people very well and is a qualified Hill and Moorland Leader. She particularly enjoys sharing her passion for Dartmoor and it’s wildlife with others – there is always something new to see, whatever the time of year or weather conditions!

Sue has lived in the Teign Valley on the eastern edge of Dartmoor for around 25 years where she has brought up her family, one of whom is now a Dartmoor farmer. She loves travelling (and has trekked in Nepal, Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, Turkey and Kazakhstan) and meeting people from all walks of life, cultures and backgrounds. She also loves singing, sculpting, botanising and walking her dog.
