Tell your story by starting with the positive (e.g. working with communities is where I have seen a lot of success, before I started working with communities there was this challenge of...) then introduce your challenges, then move to solutions. Makes sense? This way we focus on our optimism and avoid 'doom & gloom' :)

My background is mainly in species conservation, education and capacity development. For several years, I researched mother-young interactions in gorillas and chimpanzees, in captivity and the wild. After that, I worked for three years in Indonesia, where I developed and implemented youth ambassador and community engagement programmes on local and regional scales. These programmes are aimed at building conservation capacity and promoting stewardship. I currently conduct my PhD research on the professional development of conservation professionals and work as Community Manager at WildHub.
