CONSERVATION OPPORTUNITY: GAIN EXPERIENCE WITH STATE-OF-THE-ART CONSERVATION TECHNOLOGY

I'm a polar conservationist working with WWF, British Antarctic Survey and the Scott Polar Institute. Outside of my research, I'm heavily interested in increasing opportunities for underrepresented groups to work in top institutes and non-typical fields (e.g., polar and conservation science), such as black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME).

I’m setting up a variety of opportunities in relation to this. One is volunteering opportunity to work with state-of-art technology to count Antarctic seals. Would be great to channel this towards BAME STEM undergrads who would be interested in working on the cutting edge of biodiversity technology and polar wildlife conservation with the top institutes in polar and conservation science.
