Hello

Hi. I'm Tobin from England. I am new to conservation learning but I am looking forward to starting and I thought that this would be a good place to start. My background is working with children and young people.

Hello from WA State!

Hello everyone. I am checking in from WA State. I graduated Cumma Sum Laude in Feb with a BS in Environmental Science, Fish and Wildlife Management. Thanks to the pandemic, I have been unable to do volunteer work locally to gain any experience. The few places near me have closed. I am 51 with a household and bills so I cannot quit my current job to do unpaid internships or volunteer work. Hence, I am struggling to try and find any type of employment in the field. I am hoping to make some connections here to help facilitate that.I am looking to switch fields after spending 22+ years in IT to do something to help make a difference in the state of our planet. I would love to go into education or species conservation either in the US or abroad. Though I would like make an impact abroad a bit more.My hobbies include computers, some gaming, and taking care of my niece's pregnant horse.

Hello, I'm Emma :)

Hi everyone!My name is Emma Cantu and I'm a current MSc Applied Wildlife Conservation Student at Anglia Ruskin University, England. For my Masters dissertation I am researching bird of prey persecution in England, Scotland and Wales in the hope to improve awareness and communication regarding this particular wildlife crime. I will be analysing existing RSPB data on poisoning/ shooting incidents in relation to proximity to national parks and reserves, as well as public experiences of encountering injured or deceased raptors and their knowledge on what to do and who to contact in this situation. I am also looking to analyse views of members of the game shooting community, and how relations and practices can be improved to encourage the best conservation practices. In order to study this further, I have created a survey which will be live from the 26th August to the 16th September, I would be extremely grateful if people could share this within their circles :) Participants need to be over the age of 18 and need to reside or have resided in England, Scotland and Wales.

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.
