Hi there, thanks for reading! My name is Kiki Mihok and I have been in the conservation field for 5+ years. I am located in Atlanta, USA. I started my career with animal husbandry and enjoyed the work immensely, but discovered along the way that I have a true passion for communicating about wildlife. After transitioning to conservation education-based roles, I started creating digital media for zoos and nature-oriented organizations. Today, I use my skills in creativity, communication, and entertainment to create valuable content for the social media channels I manage, helping conservation non-profits broaden their reach, impact, and fundraising.

I believe that everyone deep down has a love for animals and I want to help them find it! Through personal production, as well as coordination with zoos, nature preserves, conservancies, county government, local farms, and non-profit organizations, I have created a variety of conservation media projects that have reached over 6.8 million people to date, teaching them about wildlife and wild spaces.

Reach out, connect on LinkedIn with me, or introduce yourself in the comments. I look forward to meeting and developing a community with you and others!

A warm welcome to WildHub Kiki! Great to have you join us. 

Based on your science communication work, what has been your most important conservation-related learning moment so far? 

I would recommend having a look at our upcoming WildHub socials (information here ) - it's a great way of sharing knowledge and getting to know each other in our WildHub community.

Thank you, Thirza!

I think the most important thing I have learned is to see the value in creating engaging, memorable, and impactful conservation content through social media channels.

As Jane Goodall said, “Only if we understand, can we care. Only if we care, we will help. Only if we help, we shall be saved.” People will only care about the wildlife that they are taught to understand and care about. Many conservation teams focus on in-person educational events, which are incredibly valuable and should never be lost; however, with the opportunities that social media now provides to reach millions with short-form videos and convert them into educated, caring supporters of that species or conservation projects, we must move forward to tap into that potential.

People are viewing content on the internet all the time, every day. They can either consume meaningless, invaluable content, or they can consume educational content that advances important missions and work.

The number of people that a single institution can reach in a year with the help of social media is truly limitless now, and that inspires me and motivates me every day!

I will absolutely look into these social events, thank you for the suggestion!

Thanks for sharing your valuable insights with us Kiki! Would be great if you would like to elaborate on these some time and write them up as a lessons learned piece to share with our community.

Perhaps our WildHub Community Advocate @Chrissy would like to help you with that, if you like. Thanks again!
