Animal Ethics graduate, currently living in France
I am Camille and I live in France, more precisely in the beautiful city of Strasbourg.
I have a Master degree in Animal Ethics (and law) from the University of Strasbourg. I am very passionate about animals, nature, environment and the relationship between humans and animals, among other things.
Since I've graduated, I've been confronted to some difficulties to find a job in the area I'm interested in, firstly because in France advances in terms of animal protection and conservation are slow, but mainly because my profile does not necessarily fit the requirements. Moreover, most associations for animal protection work on a volunteering basis.
Therefore, since several months, I have been thinking of ways to enhance my set of skills and strengthen my CV. I have therefore completed a training in project management for humanitarian NGOs in July.
Now I am looking forward to start the PMWC training. After this, I have plans to volunteer in several assocations for the conservation of birds and small mammals here in France, and maybe an opportunity to volunteer in a center of rehabilitation in Spain with primates.
Besides, I am currently taking steps to take another training in animal care.
I would love to dedicate my time and energy to managing projects for the protection and conversation of wildlife and I'm particularly interested in primates, elephants and big cats. Moreover, I feel like having a natural disposition to directly care and look after animals in the field, so it's a path I want to explore too.
Outside of all those things, I like yoga, reading, dancing, hiking in nature, discovering places and people, watching a lot of movies and series, and many other things !
Looking forward to hear all of your stories and experiences and starting the training!
See you tomorrow :)
