Partnership Officer - Better Biodiversity Data project, National Biodiversity Network Trust

About Christine Tansey

I now work for the National Biodiversity Network Trust as Partnership Officer on the Better Biodiversity Data project, which aims to improve infrastructure and access to biodiversity data in Scotland.  I recently worked with WildTeam UK engaging conservationists with its training and resources, and supported WildTeam Bangladesh in their work on the conservation of the Sundarbans mangrove forest and Bengal tigers. I have previously co-ordinated conservation research for a UK-based woodland charity, completed a PhD on phenology in plants and trees that involved a lot of citizen science, and have done many short-term research and conservation jobs over the years.

Thank you @Taranee for such an interesting interview with @Alain Mukiranya - I enjoyed reading about Alain's experience so much!

@Alain Mukiranya it was great to read about your focus on community conservation, and education within local communities. Such similarities with the work that WildTeam Bangladesh do around Tigers, your experiences may also interest some of WildTeam's current/former staff @Md Sarowar Jahan @Syed Tanvir Hossain @Gawsia Wahidunnessa Chowdhury
