Programme Officer, Self-employed

About Louise Hobin

My name is Louise and I am currently working as a Programme Officer for the IUCN Amphibian Red List Authority, leading on the update for all Old World amphibian assessments. For over six years, I have been working with researchers all over the world collating information about amphibians to assess extinction risk, providing training and technical support to our international network as needed. I have a MSc in Conservation and Biodiversity, and prior to my current job I was a zoo keeper primarily working with birds.

I love paddle boarding, sea swimming, walking the coast path, photography and travelling, as well as all things conservation and wildlife related. I also volunteer for the Plastic Free group where I live in Cornwall, which works with different people and groups (individuals, businesses, schools and organisations) within our community to reduce single use plastic in our everyday lives through education, beach cleans and community events, among other activities.
