I started out in conservation as a field ecologist in the UK, which I loved. 5 years after graduating I moved to Australia, where I worked firstly as a ranger on a coastal reserve and for the past four years in local government as the Biodiversity Officer for the Mornington Peninsula Shire. In this role I manage conservation work in 250 reserves across 2200 hectares of bushland.
I lead Plantlife's science team, aiming to strengthen and expand our research, data, learning and volunteering programmes. My background is in plant science, having working at Eden Project and BBSRC previously. I joined WIldhub to contribute to the National Review of Conservation Evidence.
I work on monitoring and evaluation at the Woodland Trust in the central Conservation Outcomes and Evidence team. My role is to help teams measure the effectiveness of their work and report the impact. I also work with colleagues and senior leaders to interpret and use the evidence generated for reporting and decision making. I have a background in conservation science and several years' experience in the conservation sector, which combined with project management and leadership skills helps me to fulfil my role as a bridge between on-the-ground conservation delivery and strategic planning.
I joined WildHub to connect with fellow conservationists and contribute to meaningful discussions. My Professional is Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation, also experience in agriculture and health sectors, and I'm passionate about wildlife conservation. Excited to be part of this community
My name is Mario Ekaroza Wurjanta. More than 20 years have been working for an NGO promoting Sustainable Forest Management and Reduced Impact Logging.
Currently not employed, but as a lifelong wildlife admirer, I am trying to raise awareness about endangered species by creating a product in the form of playing cards “52 Critical Endangered Species”
A dynamic individual and researcher with interest in forest management , wood processing, wood-based bioeconomy, small-scale wood value chain and the environment (ecological restoration and ecosystem services). Am also passionate about mentorship and forest education
My main goal is to pursue a career in wildlife veterinary medicine and conservation, by possibly completing trainings, a complementary MSc in wildlife health management and PhD on elephants-human coexistence HEC. Thanks to numerous experiences in this domain, I could sharpen my clinical and field practice.
I worked as a volunteer (Veterinary and wildlife volunteer) in 3 rescue centers as well as did my internships in two national Zoos (Budapest and Malaysia), which straightened my passion for wildlife and exotic veterinary medicine. I also pursued my thesis work on benthic sharks with the aquarium of the Budapest Zoo empowering my knowledges in marine biology.
I am a member of the European Association of Zoo and Wildlife Veterinarians, of the Wildlife Disease Association and of the European Young Rewilders.
