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.

Chloe Hodgkinson

Senior Programme Manager,

Hi all! I am currently Fauna & Flora Internationals (FFIs) Senior Programme Manager for Conservation Capacity and Leadership. I have a lovely broad remit, but at its heart my job is to support FFI staff and partners strengthen skills in establishing, managing and supporting FFIs conservation work. I do this in lots of ways- designing and running training events, supporting the application of new skills/learning to peoples work, setting up mentoring relationships and peer to peer learning groups, organising exchange visits, work shadowing, master classes etc. We have a big focus on knowledge management in FFI, so don't just focus on how to bring in new knowledge and learning into our organisation, but how to share and apply all the incredible knowledge and skills our 400 strong team already have I have an MSc in Environmental Technology and PhD in Anthropology from UCL where I specialised in human-environment interactions, with a stint as a Teaching Fellow in Human Ecology (maternity cover). Prior to joining FFI, I spent a number of years working in the Central African Republic to assess and improve the integration of conservation and development in the Dzanga-Sangha region, and following gorillas up and down volcanoes in Rwanda with the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International. Before joining FFI's Conservation Capacity team in 2013, I spent 5 years in FFI’s Africa team, co-ordinating and managing projects in Liberia, West Africa.
