Lizzie Barker – Ecologist
CEO of Creature Candy
Creature Candy was created by Ecologist Lizzie Barker to raise awareness of Britain's declining & protected wildlife species, to inspire people to take active roles in conservation and to help raise funds for the charities that endeavour to conserve our wildlife.
Lizzie graduated with a first class degree in zoology from Aberystwyth University in 2010. After working for four years as a consultant ecologist specialising in bats, Lizzie found a gap in the market for a brand which not only offered a range of timeless, stylish, British-made products, but one that also raised awareness of Britain's declining wildlife species and raised money for the conservation of these species.
Creature Candy proudly donates 10% of the sale price of every product sold to British wildlife charities, including Bat Conservation Trust, Butterfly Conservation, Bumblebee Conservation Trust, People's Trust for Endangered Species, Red Squirrel Survival Trust and British Trust for Ornithology.
With each online purchase we provide information about the species on the product, along with details about the related charity. All our products are designed and made in the UK and we firmly believe in supporting UK businesses.
We were lucky enough to be shortlisted for My Country Business Awards 2015. This was a great opportunity for us and we would like to thank Country Homes and Interiors Magazine for acknowledging us. We look forward to many more exciting opportunities in the future.
If you would like to become more involved with our community and the wonderful conservation projects we are able to fund as a result of the donations generated from our customer’s purchases, take a look at our Twitter, Facebook and blog pages.
At a time when much of Britain's wildlife is in dramatic decline, Creature Candy helps make a difference and will hopefully inspire others to do the same.
We thank you for your continued support and hope that together we can create something wonderful for wildlife.
