Why do conservation science?

heather_oct13 headshotIn her Oct 8 blog post, Karen McLeod of COMPASS wrote, “Being a scientist is more than a job – it’s a way of thinking, a way of living, a way of interacting with the world. For some of you, it is the best job in the world!  Our passion is clearly important, and yet … we so rarely share it. Why?”

Karen’s post this week features the ‘whys’ of a number of conservation scientists, including mine.

Thanks to Karen and her colleagues at COMPASS for pushing me to think and act beyond my comfort zone and to communicate my work more clearly.
