I am a conservation biologist, with proven experience in research development, project management and field research.

I am devoted to understanding the impact of human-modified landscapes on biodiversity but also the role they play in conservation. My primary areas of focus include multifunctional land management, sustainable agriculture and biodiversity conservation. I am adamant that we can develop and foster land-use practices that provide communities with sustainable livelihoods, whilst conserving local and regional biodiversity.

Mollie Taylor

Leave Only Footprints Engagement Coordinator, BCP Council

I am currently the Leave Only Footprints Engagement Coordinator at BCP Council. Over the past few years, I have taken on a few different roles within the organisation, based at Hengistbury Head Nature Reserve following my BSc in Animal Behaviour and alongside completing my MSc in Biodiversity Conservation at Bournemouth University. Within my role, I engage with a wide range of people over a wide range of topics from litter to the local wildlife and habitats, with the aim of reducing negative behaviours and encouraging interest and passion for nature. I am also interested and have experience in collecting and analysing data around these subjects. I have previously held a role as a research assistant with Bournemouth University exploring the most effective ways/methods to engage young people with nature, through running focus groups and literature reviews. I have a special interest in the effect of being outdoors in nature on wellbeing, especially the bereaved, and have started a podcast called The Nature of Loss; sponsored by BCP Council.
Kerstin Opfer

Policy Advisor - Energy Policy and Civil Society - Africa and MENA, Germanwatch e.V.

I'm currently working as Policy Advisor for Energy Policy and Civil Society focussing on Africa and the MENA region for a German NGO called Germanwatch. My job is very diverse - from lobbying for ambitious climate policy on the national and international stage to building capacity with local actors and researching participatory, environmentally-friendly and people-centred energy pathways - I do it all though not alone. I always work in cooperation with others. I strongly believe that only together we can achieve the kind of transformation we need to conserve our natural world and protect the climate. I know, I am not the typical conervationist. I don't focus on species, I am not even working in the field of conservation anymore. But I believe that conservation and climate protection should go hand in hand - and maybe I can help to be the bridge. Before working for Germanwatch I worked as operations and project manager for a Moroccan environment and development organisation in Marrakesh. Prior to this I completed a MSc in Conservation and Rural Development and a BSc in Biology.
