About Eden Plummer
I am interested in becoming a Wildlife Conservationist, researching wild mammal behaviour out in the field. I have a degree in Biological Sciences, Trained with London Wildlife Trust for 3 months, completed Project Management for Wildlife Conservationists course with WildLearning, volunteered and interned at Colchester Zoo, volunteered at Wildlife sense as a Field Researcher for turtles, and managed two successful fundraising projects.
I'm currently looking for any field experience I can get with mammals, whether that be in Kent, England or internationally.
Areas of expertise
Would you be willing to be approached and share your lessons learned in your area(s) of expertise with our community?
This is perfect for me. Looking forward to listening!
I thought that stakeholders was used? I've never seen beneficiaries used in nature conservation
I haven't looked at the slides yet but having all this information for free is absolutely amazing! Thank you for spreading knowledge on such an important issue
Hi Molly! It's great to hear that you're conversing with indigenous people, sharing your knowledge, and people that have gained power and privilege listening, learning, and taking actions to right wrongs, change their perspective, and how they action that privilege, language is very powerful and I think this is an important conversation.
I've always wondered where the origin of stakeholders comes from as it doesn't really explain who those people/groups are, so thank you for teaching me and the rest of the community. I think interested partners is a good one as something like right or title holders doesn't really include people like the public, and also brings an assumption that only people with rights and titles (i.e. people with privilege) are able to have a say in this, which I believe is rarely the case. l look forward to hearing more examples. Did the Native Americans you spoke to have any other suggestions?
