This week I had the pleasure of interviewing the legend that is Nando about careers, conservation, caffeine and more. Nando is one of those people who just can’t help but say yes to everything, but the world is much the richer for it.

Topics covered include:

  • Expeditions and adventures
  • Happiness and contentment
  • Saying yes too much
  • Creating animals out of wraps
  • Would you rather
  • Lifelong learning
  • Solving mysteries with giraffes with x-ray vision
  • Things learnt from non-conservation related jobs
  • And lots more random topics.

Dr. Mateos-Gonzalez (who is keenly interested in field work) shows us a great example of taking control of ones career during uncertain times. He pivoted into data science + fisheries management while waiting for Covid19 to pass by. Thanks Beth for this interview!

Very true, a good example of a pandemic pivot by Nando.
