How many meetings did you do online in the last few weeks? If your answer is "Many", you may want to check out an exciting feature that we have on our platform to support our WildHub community: hosting a video panel. 

This option can be used to have a catch-up with a fellow conservationist, to host an online meeting or organise a thematic discussion. You can also use it for our WildHub Fika (please find a brand-new video interview with the founder of the CCI Fika group, Lindsey Elliott, in which she describes this activity). 

There is the option to record your conversation and then post it in one of our channels or rooms on WildHub if you feel the discussion would be relevant to more conservation professionals. You can also allow others to start the panel before you (the host). I use this option, for example, with our monthly meetings for the Women in Conservation Canterbury Network (WCCN), so that all members can jump on the monthly call, even if I cannot make it myself. 

Please let me know if you have any questions about this exciting feature. In terms of trouble-shooting, I have heard that putting yourself on 'mute' followed by clicking 'unmute' can help synchronise your microphone.

Feel free to share your experiences using the WildHub Video Panel feature in our comments section below. Video - away!

WildHub Community Manager, WildTeam UK

My background is mainly in species conservation, education and capacity development. For several years, 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. These programmes are aimed at building conservation capacity and promoting stewardship. I currently conduct my PhD research on the professional development of conservation professionals and work as Community Manager at WildHub.
