What an insightful piece Anish thank you for sharing. I really appreciate the research and the statistics mentioned. I wonder if you could maybe link to some of these sources so members can read further into these studies. 

I would also love to know your personal interest in this topic and if you were personally involved or just interested in the work that was done! I remember following this when they first reintroduced the wolves and it was fascinating :) Great work

Feel free to share this and invite people to join WildHub if they have an interest in this topic or worked on it. Also, feel free to join our next social event found here to open a discussion around this topic if that interests you or other work you have done!

Thank you so much for this interview Ussi and @Sarah Neill. It is always great to hear from another marine biology graduate from Plymouth Unviersity. I will definitely need to check out Sea Trek now! I especially love your advice on working within your own means and doing multiple trips to adapt to your own abilities but still complete the work.

Replying to Lucy Tallents

Hi Alec, this sounds like useful and interesting research, but it's quite a big ask time-wise!  I wondered if there's something you could do to incentivize people to participate, as at the moment it appears that the only reward is a warm fuzzy feeling of helping your conservation research project  ;)

Could you perhaps create a badge for people to put on their LinkedIn profile if they participate, or offer participants early access to your findings, or links to a couple of learning resources to help them better assess evidence or...?

I remember completing one conservation survey that then placed my datapoint on a plot showing how my answers related to that of other respondents - it was really interesting!  Does anyone else remember it?

Also, many people here in WildHub are fairly early in their conservation careers, and may lack confidence in their evidence-assessing skills.  So you might increase participation by reassuring potential participants that any approach is valid, and that they don't have to be a highly qualified 'expert' for their participation to add value to your research

Thanks for these suggestions Lucy! I especially love the badge for LinkedIN :)
