Conservation Coach with the Conservation Coaches Network of Europe
I am a conservationist with experience in species reintroductions, landscape restoration and the socio-political elements of these. I currently work on species reintroductions in the south east of the UK, and primarily work to ensure the voices, values and needs of communities around reintroductions are incorporated in such work.
I am an accredited community organiser with the National Academy of Community Organising; and a Conservation Coach with the Conservation Coaches Network of Europe (CCNet). CCNet is a group of conservation practitioners who use the conservation standards to strengthen conservation efforts in Europe – ccneteurope.org
I am primarily interested in the socio-political elements of species reintroductions. How do we ensure reintroductions are socially feasible, and include the values, voices and needs of people are included within reintroductions? In addition, how do social factors impact the results of species reintroductions?
