Hi I am Jane, a new WILDHUB member, and due to start at training course on Project Management in Conservation in September / October.

Like Comment

Having gained a BSc in Ecology at UEA, and an MSc some years later in Wildlife and Habitat Management, I volunteered on overseas mammal projects, spent a couple of years lecturing students in wildlife and habitat management at Portsmouth University, and have worked in the conservation sector in the UK for a the last few years.  I have taken twists and turns in my career with a stint working for a software company and with offenders in the Probation Service.  But I am never happier than when I am muddy, working with volunteers, trying to enthuse others about nature, and watching wildlife come back to a site that has been recovered.  I am passionate about wetland habitat loss and the effect it is having on the decline of water voles, the most endangered mammal in England.

I am looking forward to this course, learning better project management skills to make the most of the scarce resources available, to effect the biggest positive difference I can through funded projects. 

I look forward to meeting other course participants :)

Best wishes  Jane

Project Manager, Manhood Wildlife and Heritage Group

Have been involved in a variety of projects - Javan Silvery Gibbon, Tigers in India, and more recently water vole conservation in the UK. Currently run a landscape wide wetland restoration project in West Sussex on the south coast of the UK with water voles in mind but would love to just throw in a couple of European beavers and my job would be done!
