I'm Madi, a behavioural ecologist, science communicator and marine photographer from Wales.
My broad interests lie in marine ecology, conservation ecology and social ecology and evolution. Specifically, I am fascinated in how human activity and changing environmental conditions are impacting animal behaviour and species/ecosystem resilience.
My experience is a mix of academic research, environmental education and campaign coordination and project management. Currently, I manage a variety of community based (small and large) grassroot conservation projects from plastic pollution, to orchard restoration and roadside verge rewilding.
I am a conservationist with an optimistic and solution based mindset and I love nothing more than collaborative work that champions change for nature.
I am currently sitting as a Wales Representative on the YMCA Youth-led Solutions Summit for Climate Action 2020.
