Hello, I'm Dani

I have recently retured to the UK after a working in Alderney (a Channel Island) for a year as the Ramsar Officer for Alderney Wildlife Trust. I was responsible for leading the 2019 Ramsar Programme for the marine Ramsar site off Alderney, home to two gannet colonies, breeding puffins, grey seals, guillemots, gull species etc. I had an amazing year and am now looking for the next opportunity.

I graduated from the University of Birmingham in 2017 with a BSc in Environmental Science. After university, I travelled and volunteered as a Research Assistant for the Spanish Council for Scientific Research and gained a qualification in European Community Development, living in Seville for 3 months. I have also volunteered with Sea Watch Foundation and Shropshire Wildlife Trust.

Whilst there are limited opportunities available during lockdown, I am using the time productively to upskill. My role in Alderney made me realise the importance of project management skills and I am excited to improve these and apply them in the future, recently enrolling on the Project Management for Wildlife Conservation course.

Outside of work I love fitness, getting outside, drinking coffee and being a foodie.

Looking forward to virtually meeting you all!

I have recently returned to the UK after working in Alderney as the Ramsar Officer for Alderney Wildlife Trust, responsible for leading the Ramsar Programme for the island's marine Ramsar site; home to two gannet colonies, breeding puffins, guillemots, gulls and grey seals etc. I was involved in everything from project management, ecological surveys, research (my favourite projects researched the impact of anthropogenic materials (mainly plastic fishing line) on gannets), events and, engaging and advising the government. Prior to this I worked as a Research Assistant in Seville and gained a qualification in European Community Development. I graduated with a BSc in Environmental Science in 2017.

Hi Daniele. You mentioned that you were living in Seville for 3 months. Were you working at the estación biológica de doñana by any chance? and was it through an organisation called Best?

Hi Tom, I just commented on your post before seeing this comment! Yes, I was at EBD. I did it through an organisation called DSC Regen. I assisted the group researching the transmission of vector-borne pathogens in 2018.
