Thanks to all the panel and those who attended.

Here I share with you the recording of the webinar: Starting your own conservation organisation. Starting your own conservation organisation isn’t for everyone, myself included. But I have so much respect for those who have started organisations and really enjoy hearing more about how it happened and how to do it. As Matthew highlighted at the end, what is interesting about all their panel is their attitudes towards failure and how brave they all are.

Thank you to the panel:
Adam Barlow – Founder of WildTeam UK
Stella Diamant - Founder of Madagascar Whale Shark Project
Kirsty Crawford – Co-founder of & Another Thing.

A big thank you also to Arielle Alley who was keeping everything running smoothly behind the scenes.

Hosted by myself and Matthew Creasey.

WildLearning Specialist, WildTeam

I'm a WildLearning Specialist with WildTeam, a bit of a odd job title. My main role is to design, deliver and organise both our online and class-based training workshops. One of the best parts of my job is meeting other conservationists and learning about the work that they do. I really enjoy geeking out reading teaching theory and thinking about ways I can more creatively and engagingly deliver learning. Before working for WildTeam I did a PhD in invasive plants and human wildlife interactions. I find it really interesting to learn about the ways people interact with nature, both when nature is being wonderful, but also when is is being a bit annoying!

Thanks so much for the recording! Sorry that I couldn't make the live webinar. I've just watched the recording and it was SO inspiring, useful, and thought-provoking. Incredible respect for those who have championed their passions and have overcome very tough obstacles in their conservation plight! You've given me a lot to think about! Thanks to Stella, Kirsty, and Adam for your frank insights!
