Conserving our planet's botanical resources and ecosystems

Holli looking for canopy research work

My name is Holli Kilburn and I am looking to pursue my conservation/research based career. I am a newly qualified Conservation Biologist, having completed a bachelors degree in 2008 gaining a first with honours. This winter I spent five weeks learning tree climbing on a Canopy Access Techniques course with ITEC (Institute for Tropical Ecology and Conservation) in Panama. I have since attained a research based internship with Para la Tierra in Paraguay where I will be expected to design and implement a research project of my choosing. I am very keen to undertake work that is relevant and useful and preferably that contributes to a wider research. I would happily use this internship to work with an organisation that requires canopy research or as part of a Masters Degree or Doctorate. Equally, I would love to put my skills into working as a technician in the wildlife documentary field. I am really enthusiastic and can’t wait to get on to the next level.
