About Thirza Loffeld

My background is mainly in species conservation, education and capacity development. I researched mother-young interactions in gorillas and chimpanzees, in captivity and the wild. After that, I worked for three years in Indonesia, where I developed and implemented youth ambassador and community engagement programmes on local and regional scales. I work as Community Manager at WildHub since 2020, and I am an Associate Member of the Durrell Institute of Conservation and Ecology (DICE) at the University of Kent where I obtained my PhD on capacity development for conservation in 2022.

Selamat Datang / a warm welcome to WildHub Cynthia! Wonderful to have you join us and thank you for sharing about your background. Where in Indonesia are you based?

Perhaps of interest to you could be our WildHub Community Advocate role here, which can be a great experience for networking as well as shaping and supporting the conversations in our global community.

Alternatively, we have our Conservation Catalyst programme here, which can be a great experience for networking as well as sharing other people’s learnings. 

Let us know if you have any questions.

Thanks for sharing this introduction about your initiative, Gerald, and great connecting with you earlier this week!

I would like to connect you to some of our WildHub Core Community members who are based in Nigeria and could potentially help you find suitable partners to team up with: @Grace Alawa , @Eberechi Cecilia Osuagwu, Wildhub Advocate , @Eniang Inemesit Edem , @Opeyemi Blessing Oyawale , @Temitope Rebecca Adelola , and @Oluwadamilare AJAYI 

Also, @Aiita Joshua Apamaku : perhaps Gerald's work around storytelling and working with youth and women has quite a bit of overlap with your work in Uganda. Perhaps it would be helpful to connect and discuss your upcoming plans?
