About Braden Wilkinson
My name is Braden Wilkinson and I live in South Africa. I have always had a passion for the natural environment and its conservation. I have a National Diploma and a Degree in Nature Conservation. I am a keen birder and love adding new species to my personal lists. I have a blog called Conservation Captured, where I look at conservation issues happening around the world and what is happening about these issues. I use peer reviewed journal articles to be scientifically accurate and news articles to stay current. I endeavour to keep my writing style informative but also in a way that everyone will understand. I also discuss ways in which you as an individual can help conserve and save the earth in small ways.
