Megan Williams

Sustainability Manager

Growing up between rural North Wales and the North of Scotland, conservation has always been at the forefront of Megs' upbringing - whether helping with projects to plant native woodlands, improving the habitat for wild Atlantic salmon and sea trout, planting hedgerows or nurturing the British black honeybee. Megs went on to study history and politics at Newcastle University followed by a master’s in journalism at Edinburgh Napier.

Previous to joining Pelorus Foundation, Megs was based in Nepal with the United Nations and working as a freelance journalist. Through her work with Pelorus Foundation, Megs became passionate about supporting the scale of more innovative environmental and conservation solutions. In recognition of this, Megs was listed as one of Walpole's most influential people in British Luxury in 2024. In her free time, Megs can be found outdoors.

Number one unforgettable travel experience?

One of my most unforgettable travel experiences was catching my first ever unbroken wave in Morocco when surfing. What felt like the biggest wave in the world turned out to be, in fact, very little, but absolutely elated that some fruition had come from the last few years spent splashing about in the white-water, I celebrated with a very hearty Moroccan breakfast while watching the locals surf.

Top of your travel bucket list?

Katelyn – one of my best friends. Back in 2017 we travelled together for six months and she is one of the funniest people I know which is definitely what you need during the inevitable backpacking dramas.

Who is your ultimate travel partner?

A trip to the untouched wilderness of Mongolia is very high on my travel bucket list – to go in search of the rare snow leopard. Or surfing in Sri Lanka!
