Communications Manager, World Cetacean Alliance
Kimberly Nielsen

Research Associate, Oceans Initiative

I work for a marine science & conservation non-profit studying species and habitats in the Salish Sea and beyond. Much of our work involves looks at how anthropogenic impacts like vessel traffic and underwater noise change the behavior of threatened populations such as southern resident killer whales. Other topics we work on include cetacean distribution and habitat use, the estimated effects of deep sea mining, salmon preservation, and habitat restoration. I have skills in GIS, R, and ecological modeling. I am most interested in research involving spatial data, oceanography, and marine vertebrate behavior.

I previously worked on field projects studying cetaceans in British Columbia and sea turtles in Costa Rica, the US, and Australia.

I completed an MRes in Marine Biology at the University of Plymouth where I used density surface models to assess the distribution and abundance of harbour porpoises around the UK.

Adam Barlow

Executive Director, WildTeam UK

I help run a UK charity that builds the capacity of conservationists to plan, implement, monitor, and report on their work. I also have a fair bit of experience in tiger and sea turtle conservation.
I have a degree in Oceanography, where I also learnt about wildlife impact or environmental impact. I have not worked in the sector and do not have any experience, so I joined this course because I would like to expand my knowedge.

Kathryn Jones

Hedgehog Officer, Shropshire Wildlife Trust

Hedgehog Officer for the Shropshire Wildlife Trust, and BSc 1st class (Hons) Animal Behaviour & Wildlife Conservation graduate! I am obsessed with all things hedgehog, and my current role revolves around raising awareness about their decline, and how we can help them here in the UK. I also have a BTEC Level 3 in Animal Management where i learned alot about the more exotics side of wildlife, but with my native UK wildlife is truly where my heart lies. My first graduate job was as a recruiter for the Birmingham and Black Country Wildlife trusts, but my expertise truly lie with all things hedgehog, and i am learning loads of different valuable skills through my journey to help them!

Louise Hawson

Volunteer, Stanage Forum

In my day job I'm an expert advisor on sustainable business. But outside work I am a member of a stakeholder forum that advises on management of the wonderful Stanage-North Lees Estate in the Peak District National Park in the UK. One of our roles is to bring people together to find ways to manage conflict between recreation and conservation, so I'm really interested in strategies that engage user groups in delivering conservation aims. I'm also interested in innovative and engaging ways to promote good practices with different visitor groups.

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.

Thirza Loffeld

WildHub Community Manager, WildTeam UK

My background is mainly in species conservation, education and capacity development. I researched mother-young interactions in gorillas and chimpanzees, in captivity and the wild. After that, I worked for three years in Indonesia, where I developed and implemented youth ambassador and community engagement programmes on local and regional scales. I obtained a PhD on capacity development for conservation and work as Community Manager at WildHub and as a Lecturer in Conservation Social Science at DICE, University of Kent.

Beth Robinson

WildLearning Specialist, WildTeam

I'm a WildLearning Specialist with WildTeam, a bit of a odd job title. My main role is to design, deliver and organise both our online and class-based training workshops. One of the best parts of my job is meeting other conservationists and learning about the work that they do. I really enjoy geeking out reading teaching theory and thinking about ways I can more creatively and engagingly deliver learning. Before working for WildTeam I did a PhD in invasive plants and human wildlife interactions. I find it really interesting to learn about the ways people interact with nature, both when nature is being wonderful, but also when is is being a bit annoying!
