Charlie Blance, 20, grew up in Perth, Scotland, and abandoned her studies in politics to pursue a more nature-orientated profession…
After realising that she didn’t suit politics and mainland life, Blance changed her future, and embarked on a year-long course in gamekeeping and environmental conservation. Still in training, she now works as a nature reserve worker on the Isle of Rum – around 32 kilometres off the coast of Scotland.
The village on the tiny island only has 13 homes. Blance’s roles include annual red deer culls to help keep deer populations at manageable levels and prevent the spread of diseases like foot-and-mouth disease.
Watch the video above to find out more about Blance’s life on the remote island.
