I am passionate about the world of conservation and education. I currently work as a Junior Aquarist at my local aquarium, whilst I complete my part-time degree in Environmental Studies. I run a website that highlights environmental and conservation issues and focuses on the importance of environmental education called The Curious Environmentalist. I have volunteering experience within the conservation sector including working on camera trap footage, working with reintroduced species in the UK and working to release and rehabilitate animals from the the tourist trade abroad. My long-term goal is to become a conservation communicator, spending my time learning, writing and giving talks about the work that is going on around the globe.

Kevin Albin

Writer/Author, Independent

I was a police officer in the UK for 25 years. I then retrained as an International Mountain Leader and have guided all over the world. In 2011, I won the Bronze in the Wanderlust Magazine World Guide Awards.

I stumbled into conservation work, firstly in Borneo, and this opened my eyes to our need to change the way we do things. During the covid confinements when I could no longer work as a guide, I took to writing, and published a novel, Stonechild, where the famous London statues come to life with their important message on conservation. Do you think we would listen to them?
