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? 

Lara Reden

WildHub Community Advocate, Self-employed

I want to have a positive impact on the environment and communities around the world. How I do this is pretty open; I have wide-ranging interests and am willing to adapt to changing circumstances.

Right now, I'm volunteering for the WildHub community and am happy to answer questions about the platform and do what I can to help connect people.

Carolyn Rosevelt, MSc (she/her)

Conservation Catalyst + Wildlife and Remote Sensing Scientist, Searching for opportunities

Highly experienced in supporting policy and decision making through delivering data on marine species, coastal pollution, and water delivery on the local, state, and federal levels.

Early in my career I took every opportunity I could to gain experience in marine mammal science from California to Quebec. These opportunities helped me create strong connections that would guide and support my next move, back to the Monterey Bay area to research plastic pollution while earning my MSc degree. While writing my thesis, I began working with NASA-Ames on projects using satellite imagery and big data to investigate drought, this experience immensely strengthened my project management and data analysis skills. Because I am always looking to improve, last year I ventured into conservation writing wanting to build on my science communication and interviewing skills. If you would like your projects or career journey to be featured in WildHub, please "follow" and reach out to set up a brief interview.
