Whittington

Science communicator


Freelance wildlife illustrator and science communicator.

From carrying out scuba diving surveys in Fiji, to completing my dissertation on lethal control of wolf populations in British Columbia, my passion for nature has lead me to gather knowledge of wildlife, and our relationship with it, from around the globe.

After graduating in 2010 with a 2.1 BSc (Hons) in Environmental Sciences with a Year in North America from the University of East Anglia I gained experience in science communication at Botanic Gardens Conservation International, The Royal Institution and the Natural History Museum. I then pursued an MSc in Science Communication at Imperial College London, part time over two years, passing with Distinction in Autumn 2016. I am now looking to pursue a career communicating natural history and environmental science, with the desire to engage present and future generations with wildlife conservation, climate change and sustainability issues.
