We are going full throttle into the world of environmental engagement for this episode!
We are back after a two week break, and for this episode we are focusing on how we can get our messaging effectively across to our audiences. Featuring Director of Conservation Optimism; Julia Migne, Sammy Brisdon, Environmental Educator and Author of 365 Days Wild and founder of A Focus On Nature; Lucy McRobert.
This episode may be of interest to anyone linked to conservation, specifically - but not exclusively those who work in engagement. It's full of tips and insights into how to make your content more effective and more relatable. The guests are among the very best in their fields for this work, so come take a listen, Mollie and I hope you enjoy it.

Brian Heppenstall

Lecturer in Wildlife, Ecology and Conservation, Kingston Maurward College

I lead and deliver a part-theory, part hand-on course in Wildlife, Ecology and Conservation at Kingston Maurward College, on the South Coast of the UK. I have managed Rangers and Engagement staff and overseen species and habitat management for over 20 years, but my passions are around people and conservation. From writing bids for engagement projects/roles to developing the future workforce, I believe the key to a brighter ecological future lies with people. I received the Alumni of the Year Award from Bournemouth University, in 2018, nominated for my work in supporting young people in Conservation, and our team have developed an industry standard placement scheme. I am also the co-host of a Conservation podcast; The Hive.
