Outreach

Online

Talking about nature has frequently become talking about extinction and loss. But it does not have to be that way. The digital storytelling project “Lost and Found” works to bring to life the inspirational stories of animals and plants that were thought extinct, but were eventually rediscovered. Our goal is to change the conversation around conservation, away from doom and gloom, and towards a more positive and enthusiastic message. Have you heard the story of the Woolly Flying Squirrel? The Rainbow Toad? What about the Bermuda Petrel?

If you are curious, have a look!

Social Media

I founded and co-managed until 2019 the social media platform I fucking Love Biodiversity which used Facebook, Twitter and Google+ to spread exciting and surprising facts about nature. We had 30 000+ fans/followers and reached hundreds of thousands of people in six years of activity. The platform is now inactive as I could no longer dedicate the time needed to run it given other demands on my time.
