Our guest for Episode 6 of Think Wildlife Podcast is Adam Barlow, founder and Executive Director of WildTeam Conservation, one of the leading conservation educational platforms in the world.
Prior to WildTeams, Adam conducted extensive research on the tigers of Sunderbans, while also leading various conservation projects around South Asia. It was during this period, that he realized academics lacked the appropriate skillsets required to implement practical conservation strategies in real life. This inspired him to launch WildTeam, which in 10 years has upskilled over 1,400 conservationists and academics with the relevant conservation skills, including project management, stakeholder engagement and fundraising.
This episode is particularly useful for those wishing to enter the field of conservation. Adam talks about the skills required and how early career conservationists, who may not  have the necessary academic qualifications, can prepare themselves for the industry.
