I’m a conservationist, a researcher for natural history films and TV, and a graduate from Oxford University with a masters in Biodiversity, Conservation and Management.
Two aspects of conservation I am particularly interested in are human-wildlife conflict and rewilding. With a booming human population, its never been more important to find effective ways to live alongside the wonders of our planet.
And, I find rewilding such a fascinating and important science which will leave our Earth richer and in better condition for future generations. It provides hope. At times I admit I’ve struggled to be an optimist and a conservationist. The advent of the Anthropocene poses significant conceptual and methodological challenges to conservation with frequent reminders in the news of plastic pollution torturing our marine species, suffocating our seas; another forest dweller facing imminent extinction from land-use change; another million pound haul of ivory and pangolin scales seized; the list goes on. Which is why I hope to provide a platform sharing a positive outlook on conservation, for everyone.
So join me on my quest to inspire, empower and entertain.
