Dive into the world of WildHub's conservationists - webinar recording

Our Deep Dive session today, as part of the Earth Optimism Summit (EOS), went incredible well. Thanks to our fantastic team, the EOS organisers and of course the supportive audience with their excellent questions (we were maxed out, a 100 participants!)

In our deep dive we celebrated our members' conservation success in building capacity for conservation; we learned from each other and provided mutual encouragement to your fellow conservationists!  I realise not all of your questions were answered and some of you were not able to join the session at all because of our 100 participants cap. So please continue to ask questions to our panelists by posting these below their blogs on WildHub (you need to be logged in as a member to do so - free registration).

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.
