This outreach project is comprised of a series of in-person events featuring the incredible work of different conservation-focused NGOs. Each event is hosted by QMUL scientists, and allow students to view exclusive wildlife footage and interact directly with international conservation experts via livestream. All events are recorded and subsequently uploaded to our webpage, enabling attendees and members of the public to view the events freely.
Our events showcase the incredible work currently being conducted by NGOs to protect endangered species, with an emphasis on highlighting career pathways into biodiversity conservation and science. Through this, we aim to raise awareness and interest in school students to pursue such careers, whilst providing a platform for NGOs to expand their international outreach audience.
The Wild-Live Streaming project is funded by the QMUL Centre for Public Engagement Large Grant (2021).
