Hi all!

I'm a member of the Wild Lens Collective, a community of filmmakers and biologists around the world who make conservation films and podcasts about nature, conservation and environmental justice. The Collective is currently in the process of making a new film about bats, entitled The Invisible Mammal. The film aims to raise awareness about white-nose syndrome which is decimating bat populations in the Americas, and threatens species in other parts of the world. The film will also raise awareness about declining bat populations in other parts of the world and will also go into more detail about covid (not originally planned to be part of the doc!). To spread some love for bats this Bat Appreciation Month (October) we're doing 31 days of bats on The Invisible Mammal's Facebook page, Wild Lens Instagram and Wild Lens Twitter and celebrating one bat species every day. Through this campaign, we're hoping to raise the funds to make the film as well as to create anticipation for its release next year. We hope you enjoy the videos and bats!

Wildlife Biologist/Communications Specialist, Song & Dance Communications

I started my conservation career as a researcher/author for the Arkive online natural world encyclopedia, before managing the Wildscreen Exchange project which gives 350+ organisations across the world access to free photographs and videos for their communications. From working on this project, I developed a keen interest in conservation communications and began researching impact and technique.

I also ran the public section of the Wildscreen Festival, Witness the Wild, which is an event programme that includes a travelling bicycle-powered wildlife film cinema, the world's largest recycled and recyclable photography exhibition, and a nature-themed street art gallery. Since then, I have been running my own conservation communications business, Song and Dance Communications, but split my time 50/50 between this and field work, which mostly centres around ecosystem restoration and short-term contracts in the ecotourism industry. I also produce a seldom updated blog, which I hope to spend more time on at some point in the not-too-distant future!
