Hi, I'm Lauren
I'm originally from France but I currently live in the UK.
During my first masters in International Studies, Cutlure, Conflicts and Peace in Montréal, Canada, I have worked with rehabilitated elephants in Thailand and studied the intricate link between tourism / ecotourism, wildlife conservation and the needs of local people.
I then pursued a second master in Primate Conservation at Oxford Brookes University, UK, to specialise in primates. I worked with gibbons in a rescue centre in India.
For the past 15 months, I've also been managing the social media accounts and creating digital content for a UK-based charity raising awareness on the situation of elephants in Thailand and Asia, especially elephants involved in tourism.
I'm passionate about wildlife, wildlife conservation, primates and elephants, and I have a deep interest in matters such as wildlife trade, wildlife tourism and local communities. I also love chocolate, Iearning languages, listening to music (and of course dancing and singing, my neighbours must be delighted) and I'm an expert at folding sheets (it's a rare skill to have, I know).
I am currently looking for job opportunities in conservation, even though it's on hold at the moment because of the global pandemic.
