|In one sentence, describe why you're a #ConservationOptimist:||
Sharing reasons for hope and telling stories of successes are far more powerful than the stark facts of the threats they are facing. We need conservation optimism to inspire us to fight for wildlife.
I joined Conservation Optimism and Synchronicity Earth in May 2019 after three years of working for wildlife conservation charity World Land Trust. I had been introduced to field conservation in South Africa, where I worked as a safari guide, and this inspired me to study Zoology at the University of Edinburgh. My passion for wildlife is only seconded by my love for writing, and I am very lucky that I have found a niche where sharing conservation stories can be used to inspire further action for wildlife.
