I am excited to be one of the newest Conservation and Behavior Change group moderators. You can read more about me here: https://naaee.org/eepro/people/rosemary-hitchens.
I am looking forward to learning about all of you and the work you’re doing. I’m in the process of scheduling recurring Zoom calls in 2021 that can serve as an opportunity for us to convene over video and continue the discussions raised back in October at the 2020 NAAEE Conference. If you missed the conference call, you can read this blog post recap here: https://naaee.org/eepro/blog/naaee-behavior-change-eepro-group.
In the meantime, please take a moment to reply to this discussion thread, introducing yourself and answering any/all of the following questions:
1. Where are you based?
2. How are behavior change and conservation relevant to your work?
3. What type of content would you like to see posted in this group?
4. What animal/s do you identify with or feel a special connection to?
5. What is your superpower?
I’d also like to take this moment to acknowledge the hard work of Kelly Dennings and Erin Stimer. Both Kelly and Erin are stepping down from their eePro Conservation and Behavior Change group moderator roles. So a big (virtual) round of applause for their leadership these past years! It’s our hope that they’ll both continue to be part of our eePro community.
Lastly, I encourage you to take this survey so we (i.e. your group moderators) can better understand how we can support you: https://rosemary525918.typeform.com/to/jHq8WmCl.
If you'd like to reach out to me personally my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to getting to know everyone.
P.S. Here's a picture of me interviewing a game ranger in Kenya’s Amboseli National Park.
