Léa K

WildLearning Specialist, WildTeam

Hello! I'm Léa and I'm a WildLearning Specialist with WildTeam. I help deliver a number of workshops with WildTeam, including the Grant Writing for WildLife Conservation workshops. I love getting to know all the workshop participants and learning from them :)

Previously, I was working with BirdLife International on an EC-funded project on Involving More Stakeholders in Forest Governance in Asia and the Pacific. I got to work with wonderful organisations such as the Haribon Foundation in the Philippines, Burung in Indonesia, Malaysian Nature Society as well as Tenkile Conservation Alliance and the University of Papua New Guinea. Education-wise, I have studied economic development, international relations as well as tropical forestry in the past.

Passionate about the world, I consider myself a global citizen. Born in Belgium, I have lived 10 years in South Africa, 20 years in France, 2 in New Zealand, and 6 in Switzerland. I have also had the privilege to work and travel for 18 months in Zambia. I speak English, French and German. Altruistic and empathetic, I live accordingly to the most beautiful word in the world “Ahimsa” (respect for all living things and no violence towards others). Defending animal and human rights, reducing our impact on the environment and protecting the beautiful place we live in everyday are part of my core values.
