General Manager - Aigas Field Centre

"Dan Puplett has been providing woodland ecology training to Aigas rangers for a number of years. These days out are always a highlight of the training programme. As well as his extraordinary knowledge, Dan has a patient and gentle teaching technique, which encourages our young staff to ask questions and to learn in an unpressured and immersive environment. I would thoroughly recommend him..."

Dr Kenny Taylor

Writer, naturalist and former chair of Trees for Life

“It's always a pleasure to explore nature with Dan, whether in deep wilds or closer to home. His quiet but enthusiastic approach helps others to slow down, focus and so notice the subtle signs of birds, mammals and more that are there if you take time to watch, listen and learn. He's an excellent teacher, guide and travelling companion.”

Robin Rigg

Chairman – Slovak Wildlife Society

“Dan is a very knowledgeable, capable and enthusiastic naturalist and educator who has helped us enormously with our tracking project. I highly recommend him.”

Chris Johnstone

Co-author, Active Hope

"Dan combines a depth of nature connection with an engaging way of teaching, creating a fun and friendly workshop that I both learned from and enjoyed. His courses are strongly recommended."

“Dan was invited to deliver nature awareness training to Scottish Wildlife Trust Junior Branch Adult volunteers … We had a very informative and engaging walk with Dan, and came away from the event with a deeper appreciation of nature and our connection to it.  We very much enjoyed Dan’s training and will definitely approach him for more sessions in the future.”

Moray Wildlife Watch Group Organiser

“Dan's Egyptian bowdrill and fire skills workshop was packed full of hands on experience. Dan has a very relaxed and gentle nature about him and is always willing to answer (even the simplest of) questions. Dan is clearly highly experienced and I would recommend attending his workshops. Thanks again, Dan!”
