My name is Francesca, and I work as animal curator/head or research and conservation department at Giardino Zoologico di Pistoia, a small zoo in Italy.

I have a MSc in Natural Sciences and I am currently enrolled in the MSc in Animal Welfare, Ethics and Law at Winchester University. I love to share my days with animals and study their behavior and emotional life.

Over the years I have had the opportunity to participate in various conservation programs and volunteering experiences and I would like to gain more skills in project management to increase my contribution to wildlife conservation. 

I also love traveling, hiking with my family and dogs and learning Spanish!

See you soon! Hugs from Italy

Welcome Francesca, great to have another person that loves hiking! Also, animal welfare and ethics seems to be a common thread amongst many of the workshop participants. Looking forward to chatting more in the live sessions. B
