About Mr Steve Lockett
Mr Steve Lockett serves as the Education and Outreach Officer of Mahseer Trust, UK. Having parallel careers in education and music for 30 years, Steve brings both knowledge and entertainment to his inspirational presentations. Involved with key aspects of freshwater conservation in Asia for 20 years, he has been a member of Mahseer Trust since 2011. Steve has been involved with Mahseer Trust, a UK-based conservation NGO, since 2011. Previously, he held the roles of Press Officer and then Vice-Chair (acting Chair from 2015 -17). He has been working on issues of river and fish conservation in the south and southeast Asian countries for 20 years, and in a voluntary capacity in the UK for 20 years prior to that. Since standing down as a trustee of Mahseer Trust, to spend more time in mahseer range countries, Steve has used his background in journalism and teaching to drive outreach about river conservation awareness, and better community conservation incentives, including overseeing projects as a consultant for Bournemouth University’s Global Environmental Solutions department.
His time studying mahseer, river habitats and human use of freshwater habitat have included projects in Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Thailand. Steve is the architect of the holistic Kaveri Mission programme for India’s River Cauvery, a wide-ranging project supported by Tata Power, involving scientific study, outreach and local cultural heritage elements. This project aims to conserve the Critically Endangered hump-backed mahseer, Tor remadevii, as an umbrella species to promote better overall river ecosystem health and associated water availability.
