Hello, I'm Dani

Like

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!

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.
