Hello Everyone!

My name is Miriam and I am a conservation Scientist, specialised in SE Asian carnivores.

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.

Hi Miriam! May I ask where you got your MA in Wildlife Documentary Productions? I only know of Bristol University's MA in Wildlife Filmmaking and they were full this year. Thank you :-)
