With an ever-growing passion for the natural world, Connie is an ambitious hard-working individual taking steps towards a career in the science communication sector of conservation; having recently graduated from the University of Nottingham with a first class BSc Hons Zoology degree. As a member of the WWF, an ORCA Marine Mammal surveyor and a Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust education volunteer, Connie is a proactive young conservationist contributing to the protection of wildlife in her local area and further afield. Believing that effective verbal and visual communication is key to sustaining conservation, Connie keeps a wildlife blog combining writing with photography to share her encounters with wildlife, both at home and on her travels, in the hope of inspiring others to connect with and protect the natural world. Connie’s ultimate ambition is to combine her scientific background with the creative medium of film to pursue a career in wildlife filmmaking; aiming to educate and inspire the next generation of conservationists.
