Women in Conservation would like to invite you to our annual conference event!

Women in Conservation was born from discontent in the lack of diversity in speakers at The University of Exeter. Students decided to put on an annual conference showcasing the amazing women that have managed to overcome societal obstacles in conservation.

Speakers for this event include:

Joanna Alfaro, the co-founder of Peruvian NGO Pro Delphinus, where she and her team conduct important research focused on small-scale fisheries and marine conservation.

Nina Constable, an award-winning conservation filmmaker based in Cornwall, UK where her films have screened in festivals globally and her work has featured in a number of significant broadcasts and publications.

Paula Baker has spent the majority of the last 15 years working for the RSPB on Nature Reserves. Latterly, her career progressed into site management including leading major projects, ecological delivery, supporting staff and volunteer development, and all aspects of nature reserve management. She is currently working at RSPB Scotland Loch Lomond

Rachel Hevesi, Director of the charity Wild Futures, works as a consultant for primate welfare, conservation, and behaviour. With over 25 years’ experience in the UK and South America, she is a specialist in captive care and rehabilitation.

Sarah McKain is a Policy Officer at the British Ecological Society. She coordinates the work of the Scottish Policy Group and their policy Committee. She previously worked at the United Nations Convention on Migratory Species where she supported the aquatic species team, the legal unit and assisted with the organization of COP13. She has also worked at the IUCN Environmental Law Centre, in Germany.

A minimum donation of £1 + service fee is required and will be split between charities chosen by the speakers.
