I started my placement as a Campaigns Officer after finishing my second year studying Animal Conservation Science.
I’ve always loved animals and the natural world, and after spending two years learning the interdisciplinary field, I have discovered a passion for the social aspect of conservation, specifically using effective activism to make real policy changes to better protect biodiversity.
I have also spent my time at uni volunteering for a charity which focuses on various social issues, which has allowed me to do some school speaker work, be part of a dialogue network and join the committee as an events manager for a year. I have recently started as a communications manager too. As a highly creative and social person, and I want to spend my life using the skills I enjoy to make a difference!
