Evans, Glyn

Glyn Evans is a microbiologist with a passion for animal welfare and environmental conservation. Together with his partner and two sons, he lives on a farm in County Meath. It’s important to him that his sons grow up with animals around them and can learn about protecting nature. Wanting to share their love of animals with other children and adults, the family opened their farm to the public. Through providing animal therapy, and educating visitors on the small things we can all do to help our environment, they hoped to reduce animal cruelty. While the farm is no longer open to the public, Glyn continues to reach out to both children and adults and help them to understand the importance of animals and the environment.
