Hello! I'm the community manager at WILDLABS. You can come to me with all your questions, suggestions and ideas and I'll do my best to help you out.
My background is a combination of field experience researching endangered species and monitoring biodiversity (primarily in Australia) and digital experience in communications and design. My interest in conservation tech stems from some of my first experiences working in the field. I was struck by the disconnect that saw me struggle to find GPS collars that were small enough for quolls (an endangered Australian predator) and not exorbitantly expensive, yet I had an iphone in my back pocket! Surely there must be a better way for the amazing technology we take for granted every day to be used in conservation? My hope is that WILDLABS.NET will help us build bridges between tech and conservation, so we can work together to translate technological innovation for the benefit of our natural world.
You can get in touch by sending me a private message here on WILDLABS.NET, or emailing me at [email protected].
