Chloe Long

Total raised


Chloe was a wonderful wife to Jim, daughter to Phil and Megs and sister to Simon. She loved animals and it was always a joy to see her burst out laughing whenever she saw an elephant shrew on a wildlife documentary, however dark the current situation. Chloe's interest in wildlife was very active. Her great passion was the degu, which can be found in the wilds of Chile. She researched their behaviour as well as developing the Degutopia website, an information source for the owners of pet degus. Chloe's PhD research was about the interactions of bats and wind turbines and how they might be improved. She could often be found in the countryside taking photos of wildlife. Chloe passed away from cancer on the 8th September 2019, leaving a hole in our lives. Please help us to raise money to conserve wildlife globally in Chloe's memory.
