In my day job I'm an expert advisor on sustainable business. But outside work I am a member of a stakeholder forum that advises on management of the wonderful Stanage-North Lees Estate in the Peak District National Park in the UK. One of our roles is to bring people together to find ways to manage conflict between recreation and conservation, so I'm really interested in strategies that engage user groups in delivering conservation aims. I'm also interested in innovative and engaging ways to promote good practices with different visitor groups.
We are an international community of conservation professionals. We provide a space to exchange ideas, create new solutions, and make new partnerships to enable better, faster, and cheaper conservation that helps save more wildlife. We are a non-hierarchical friendly community of like-minded people, with similar values and different ideas. Our community is free to join and mainly for those currently working in the conservation sector, but it is open to anyone who feels that they can contribute in a meaningful way. Our community is member-led, meaning that members decide what to talk about, how to interact, and how to grow the community.
