Pippa first went to Indonesia with Operation Wallacea in 1998 and fell in love with everything expedition and Opwall. Upon her return she embarked upon the university tour spreading the word of Operation Wallacea and fundraising to undergraduates. Now many years on, having travelled her way through most of the Opwall sites she is responsible for our sales and marketing information alongside the recruitment and fundraising teams. Pippa has overseen the growth of Operation Wallacea running from a single country to what it is today and from recruiting volunteers from just the UK to now having sales offices all over the world. In 2010 Pippa was made a Director and is responsible for all school and volunteer recruitment. On expedition she spends as much of her time birding as possible and has a C-permit ringing license with the BTO.
