He has had an active role in conservation work around the islands for more than 20 years, and has led guided wildlife walks there since 1985.[4] He is currently Honorary President and Chairman of the Isles of Scilly Bird Group[4][5] and regularly presents slideshows and leads other events on the islands. He is a Tour Leader for Island Holidays[6] and runs the Island Wildlife Tours group.[7] He is part of the Travelling Naturalist group.[8]

Wagstaff also works in other parts of the world, such as Florida[9] and the Falkland Islands.[10][11] Wagstaff wrote Falkland Islands: The Bradt Travel Guide in 2001.[12]
