Hello WildHub!

I'm Rebecca, just wanted to say hello.

Hello everyone,

I have just joined WildHub and I am excited to be here and to learn more about the important work that we are all doing. A little about me; I am currently working part-time as a Junior Aquarist, whilst also getting my degree part-time from The Open University in BA (Hons) Environmental Studies - I came into further education a little later than most. I hope to do a master's degree, in the future, more focused on conservation but one step at a time! 

My goals and ambitions are to become a conservation communicator, preferably freelance, to enable me to learn about and promote the wide range of work that is happening in the sector. As part of this goal I have been doing a number of volunteer roles whilst undertaking my studies, including; working with reintroduced species, rehabilitation and release of animals exploited for tourism, reviewing camera trap footage and hopefully, also sharing regular content on here! I have a blog that I am trying to grow, where I post my writing on the natural world and also a little about wellness, which you are all welcome to follow - www.smallworldbigcause.com.

I am looking forward to being a member of this community, expanding my networks and developing skills along the way. Keep up the good work everyone and do get in touch if you want to discuss anything with me.

Junior Aquarist & Environmental Educator, Hastings Aquarium & The Curious Environmentalist

I am passionate about the world of conservation and education. I currently work as a Junior Aquarist at my local aquarium, whilst I complete my part-time degree in Environmental Studies. I run a website that highlights environmental and conservation issues and focuses on the importance of environmental education called The Curious Environmentalist. I have volunteering experience within the conservation sector including working on camera trap footage, working with reintroduced species in the UK and working to release and rehabilitate animals from the the tourist trade abroad. My long-term goal is to become a conservation communicator, spending my time learning, writing and giving talks about the work that is going on around the globe. For now, I want to learn from those that have come before me and keep gaining experience to hone my relevant skills and knowledge.
