Giuseppe Forestieri

Creative Director, Motion Aptitude

Outdoors enthusiast, snowboard and kitesurf addict with a background in visual communication. As a fan of outdoor sports, I’ve always been fascinated by nature and the complexities of our ecosystem, it makes me want to do all I can to preserve nature and see it flourish. Hence, in 2018 I've created Motion Aptitude. With our animations and illustrations, we’ve been helping universities and organisations sharing stories and scientific studies related to Environmental Science and other allied disciplines such as Biodiversity, Ecology, Wildlife Conservation and Animal Welfare. We aim to foster a sense of curiosity and interest in the natural world and science, so people can connect more deeply with the environment and the world around them. Our Vision is to help reconnect people of all generation with nature to ensure a sustainable future. Our Mission is to inform and inspire viewers with our compelling animated stories. Are you ready to elevate your communication to the next level? Let's talk ▶️ hello@motionaptitude.com
Alan J. Hesse

Freelance Conservationist, author-illustrator, environmental and climate education entrepreneur, Captain Polo Academy

My conservation career started in 1992 when I helped set up and joined a University expedition to the Bolivian Amazon. What started out as a 3-month experience ended up being a life-changing inflection point that set my professional and personal course to the present day. My conservation experience was built bottom-up and hands-on, and includes field data collection and logistics, grassroots organization leadership and project management, community engagement and capacity building, M&E, training and behavior change, and lately climate education through authorship of graphic novels and other resources.

Louisa Richmond-Coggan

Consultant, LRC Wildlife Conservation

I'm a consultant collaborating with Unearthodox as an External Innovator, where I'm dedicated to mapping innovative Web 3.0 technology solutions and opportunities for conservation organisations in order to maximise our impact. As well as developing tools to support knowledge sharing, integration, and implementation of specific Web 3.0 technologies into conservation organisations and their projects. Are you working in or with Web 3.0 technologies such as blockchain, tokens, NFTs, VR, AR, DAOs, IoT, and the metaverse, developing new ideas and projects? Or are you just curious about this technology? If so, please reach out and get in touch, as it would be great to connect and discuss your thoughts and experiences! Background I am a Sustainable Conservation Practitioner and Capacity Builder with over twenty years of progressive experience working as a Field Researcher, Ecology Manager, Independent Conservation Science Consultant, and Academic Dean of the School of Wildlife Conservation at the African Leadership University. I have a Master in Conservation Biology from the Durrell Institute of Conservation and Ecology, University of Kent, and a Ph.D. from Nottingham Trent University which researched the variations in brown hyaena density and distribution across South Africa. My career has taken me from fundamental field-based ecology and conservation management, project design, and implementation to training and developing the next generation of ethical entrepreneurial mission-driven conservation leaders for the future of the African continent. This focused on the ‘Business of Conservation’ to ensure that conservation becomes an opportunity for economic and social development, where natural capital is sustained or grown even for the betterment of our communities. I have conducted large carnivore and human-wildlife conflict research in national parks, conservancies, and private farmland across Eastern and Southern Africa. I have worked for international NGOs based in the UK and regional NGOs in Africa. I undertook the National Leopard Census Project which took a multi-disciplinary approach to understand the pressures on, and status of, the leopard population across Namibia.
