I have just left my post-doctoral position in Borneo and am interested to move into media. I want to utilise media to inspire conservation action. For any of you like-minded people or mentors, get in touch :)
Conservation Scientist, Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research
I have just completed a 2-year post-doc with the Danau Girang Field Centre (DGFC) in Borneo where I worked as the Scientific Field Officer and Carnivore Conservation Officer. Although still an associate researcher for DGFC, I am due to move on to my next post-doctoral position at the Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research (IZW) in Germany. In my next project, I am moving into behaviour change research to address bear bile and bear derivative consumption in Vietnam. I am also passionate about wildlife documentaries (I hold a MA in Wildlife Documentary productions) and would like to know more about using media to influence behaviour. I am looking forward connecting with fellow conservation scientists and would welcome mentorship.
We are an international community of conservation professionals. We provide a space to exchange ideas, create new solutions, and make new partnerships to enable better, faster, and cheaper conservation that helps save more wildlife. We are a non-hierarchical friendly community of like-minded people, with similar values and different ideas. Our community is free to join and mainly for those currently working in the conservation sector, but it is open to anyone who feels that they can contribute in a meaningful way. Our community is member-led, meaning that members decide what to talk about, how to interact, and how to grow the community.
