Hello Wildhub!

Hey everyone! Great to be here, looks like you all have a really good thing going here.  A little about me: I'm from Cape Town, South Africa and busy doing freelance avifaunal monitoring while I complete my further studies and continue to search for employment. Spent just over a year volunteering and interning at local nature reserves here in Cape Town before the pandemic, once we were allowed out I got the pleasure of volunteering with Dwarf Mongooses and now I am helping out with bird monitoring. Hoping to get more into the wildlife side and am keen for any new opportunities all over the world, also keen to grow my connections in the industry! Busy doing research into translocations and reintroductions at the moment so keen to learn as much as possible about any related topics.  Love any extra ways to learn and this looks like a great place to do that.

Hello everyone!

My name is Charlotte and I am a final year undergraduate studying Environmental Science at the University of Birmingham. In terms of experience, I completed an eight-month industrial placement at the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research in New Zealand where my focus was aquatic ecology. My interests include wildlife and habitat conservation, habitat restoration, re-wilding, species re-introduction, and freshwater and marine ecology. I joined WildHub to network with others in this field and to seek training and career opportunities! I am really excited to get to know everyone and share our experiences!

Hello!

Hi everyone, My name is Lize and I have just completed my masters in conservation at Plymouth Uni. I have a passion for science communication and rewinding as well as rehabilitation of animals. I also love the use of technology, specifically cameras, to enhance scientific research. My MSc project looked at using thermal imaging cameras to identify seal injuries in wild grey seals at Brixham marina! 🦭 I have just secured a part time job as membership officer at the marine biological association which I am loving already and can't wait to connect with more people on here

Ciao everyone.

Ciao everyone, I’m so pleased to be part of this community!  I am a snowboard and kitesurf addict based in the UK.With a background in visual communication, I specialise in animation and Illustration.As a fan of outdoor sports, I’ve always been fascinated by nature and the complexities of the ecosystem. It makes me want to do all I can to preserve the environment and see it flourish.  My mission is to make nature conservation more accessible to everyone. I run an animation studio called Motion Aptitude, our purpose is to raise awareness and drive people to act on issues regarding wildlife, environmental science and animal welfare. Motion Aptitude is the fusion of two of my biggest passions in life: creativity, and the great outdoors. My vision is to inspire a new generation of action-driven environmental enthusiasts. Looking forward to connecting and learning from you all :) Giuseppe

Humble beginnings

Hi WildHub Community, It's great to be a new member here and start to learn and share experiences with everyone. I live and work as an ecologist in the field in Australia for a NGO called the Australian Wildlife Conservancy. During the pandemic with border closures I got stuck outside of Australia and it forced a rethink on on how I could work. Importantly I have been trying to diversify my network so I can keep well connected whereever I am in the world. The conservation world is a fascinating world to be a part of, and can literally take anywhere in the world, whether in person or through reading/listening. I'm humbled to be part of WildHub and look forward to sharing stories and experiences with the broader community. I am a scientist but sort of feel a jack-of-all trades as I dip my toes in science communication, networking, fundraising and strategy for some of my time.

About this room

In this room, we ask members to introduce yourself on here, tell us a bit about yourself, where you are from, and why you decided to join our WildHub community. Please include some professional information, but also something fun (e.g. what is your favourite type of chocolate, best wildlife encounter ever, etc.). If you could include a photo of yourself as well that would be great, as not everyone has a profile picture that is easy to see their face or even of them! Alternatively, you could introduce yourself by recording a video on our video panel option. Go to 'collaborate' in the right upper corner of the site > 'host a video panel' and choose the record this panel option. After you have introduced yourself, go to your profile picture (avatar) in the right upper corner > 'my videos' and you will find your video there. Click on it and you will be able to post it to our room via the right hand menu. Let me know if I can help by emailing me at thirza@wildteam.org.uk 

I'm excited to meet you all and hear your stories.
