Stephen Browne

Director of Operations, Asia-Pacific & Manager, FFI Singapore Fauna & Flora International

Stephen was born and brought up in the heart of Alan Partridge country (rural Norfolk for those that don’t know) where he grew to appreciate the beautiful countryside and wildlife around him, particularly birds. After a stint at university, which rewarded him with the a couple of pieces of paper proclaiming that he was both a Bachelor and a Master of Science, he was lucky to get employment as a full-time professional birdwatcher, otherwise known as an ornithologist, with the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO). The work there was mainly concerned with helping to develop and run national bird surveys to monitor the status of the UK’s birds and other general bird-related research. After six years at the BTO, Stephen was lucky to be selected to undertake a PhD on Turtle Doves at what is known now as the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT), where he worked for about eight years. A post-doctoral research project on grey partridges and a chance encounter with a Cambodian student that he supervised, developed an interest in galliformes (pheasants and partridges to most people), particularly those in SE Asia and China. Through the antics of chasing pheasants as a Research Associate of the World Pheasant Association (WPA), Stephen was able to travel to Asia a lot and as a result was extremely fortunate to gain employment at FFI within its Asia-Pacific Programme. Stephen joined FFI in 2006 is now Director of Operations for FFI’s Asia-Pacific Programme, where he helps oversee the 70 odd projects across the seven countries that FFI works in. Whilst his work is perhaps more office based these days than is healthy, a recent long-term posting to Singapore, to support the regional team more effectively, means that he can once again do a bit of bird watching, and perhaps even chase the odd pheasant!
