About Kathleen Reinhardt

Hi! - I’m Kathleen Reinhardt. I am an ecophysiologist, primatologist and scientific illustrator. 

My research themes around understanding the behavioural and physiological adaptations of wild animals in response to changing environments, and how we can apply this to conservation management. I’m particularly interested in how animal that use hibernation and torpor adapt to environmental changes, and human-altered landscapes.

As an independent Scientific Illustrator, I work with scientists and conservation projects to illustrate their work, with the aim of effective science communication and outreach. These services range from creating digital figures for scientific publications, to species identification drawings and children’s books.
