What Do We Do When Outside TRI? Trefor’s Wildlife Pursuit

Updated: Apr 7

TRI Institute Fellow, Dr Trefor Evans, has worked in the hair care industry for over 30 years; but, when he’s not in the laboratory, he can often be found pursuing another of his passions, wildlife photography.


TRI’s beautiful surroundings were an early inspiration for this hobby as a wide variety of wildlife can regularly be seen on the grounds. The property boarders Carnegie Lake which attracts bald eagles and osprey as well as numerous ducks and wading birds. Meanwhile, the trees and grassland are home to numerous other animals and birds – perhaps most notably a family of foxes.


At the weekends, and on many of his days off, Trefor can generally be found wandering the local forest preserves and parks at the crack of dawn with his camera in-hand. Below are some of Trefor’s pictures.
