Rebecca Brassey

Hello everyone!

I'm Rebecca and I live in a small village in Cambridgeshire. I have a bachelor's degree in zoology and a master's in ecology, specialising in orangutan ecology in Borneo.

I have worked in conservation for over ten years with several NGO's including the Bat Conservation Trust as a Project Development Officer; the Scottish Wildlife Trust as a Survey & Data Officer on the 'Saving Scotland's Red Squirrels' project; Forest Research as a Project Officer studying red deer health across Scotland; and The Society for Environmental Exploration as a Primary Research Officer carrying out fauna and flora surveys in Tanzania.

Unfortunately, in the last two years, I have not been able to secure a job in zoology. I have signed up to this course in SDWC to give my CV a much needed boost, increase my chances of getting back into the field of zoology, and to prepare me for a PhD that I would like to start in the next two years.

In my free time I enjoy wildlife photography, camera trapping, yoga, and spending time with my dog 'Bear'.

I am looking forward to meeting everyone and hearing about all your amazing experiences :)

Bear is a good name for a dog! What breed is bear? Sounds like you've got lots of experience and hope this course can help you secure a job.

Hi Beth. Bear is a very soppy black labrador :). Thank you so much, I really hope so too!!
