I was one of the recipients of this year’s David H. Smith Conservation Research Fellowship! This Fellowship, given by the Society for Conservation Biology, seeks to support outstanding early-career scientists who are successful at linking conservation science and its application. I will receive two years of postdoctoral support and will be moving to the USA to work in partnership with Rare and Georgia State University.
My project is entitled “Using social return on investment to evaluate and improve conservation outreach” and will look at evaluating effort to influence human behaviors that have an impact on natural resource management.
