David Hoccom

Big Chalk Programme Lead

Before joining The National Landscapes Association, David worked for the RSPB in strategic, policy and operational roles for over twenty years, having started his career at BirdLife International. Living where Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire meet, he's recently come to know the Chilterns National Landscape. A keen walker, David has explored this wonderful chalk landscape on foot and has enjoyed visiting England’s National Landscapes and National Parks with family and friends over many years.

He loves big ideas which can help tackle the nature and climate crises, of which Big Chalk is a brilliant example. The ambition to amplify existing chalk conservation and access initiatives to create a super network for nature's recovery is much-needed. It echo's David's time in the Cambridgeshire, Norfolk & Suffolk Fens – working collaboratively with a diversity of partners to energise and facilitate landscape-scale restoration for nature and people.
