Wild-Live Streaming

Welcome to the wild!


Wild-Live Streaming is an inclusive and free platform, created to provide UK school students from all backgrounds with the unique opportunity to interact with global conservation projects directly.

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).

We upload all of our previous events below to ensure that the content is publicly available for everyone to experience.

Project Biodiversity Hatchery Tour 

Featured as part of our first live event, Débora Newlands of Project Biodiversity (Sal Island, Cabo Verde) presented a tour of one of their incredible loggerhead sea turtle hatcheries. 


Wild-Live Streaming Q&A ft. Kirsten Fairweather of Project Biodiversity 

Wild-Live Streaming's first live Q&A event. The event featured the conservation work of the NGO Project Biodiversity (Sal Island, Cabo Verde). Kirsten Fairweather (Scientific Coordinator) joined us via live stream to answer questions, posed by secondary school students, about the NGO's incredible sea turtle conservation work and her career background.


Wild-Live Streaming Q&A ft. Débora Newlands of Project Biodiversity 

For Wild-Live Streaming's second live Q&A event, Débora Newlands (International Volunteering Programme Coordinator) of Project Biodiversity joined us via live stream. Débora discussed questions posed by the students of Brentfield Primary School, which encompassed Loggerhead sea turtle ecology, the challenges facing turtle persistence on Sal, and the conservation techniques employed by Project Biodiversity to help preserve the population.


Wild-Live Streaming Q&A, Featuring Alberto Queiruga and Nathalie Melo of Biosfera 

For Wild-Live Streaming's third live Q&A event, Alberto Queiruga and Nathalie Melo, of Biosfera, gave fascinating answers to questions posed by students about the seabird, shark, and sea turtle conservation work, performed by the NGO. Nathalie also discussed the incredible artwork she has created to help engage local communities with the NGO's projects. 


Wild-Live Streaming Q&A, Featuring Alberto Queiruga of Biosfera 

For Wild-Live Streaming's fourth live Q&A event, the team headed to Richmond Park Academy, where Alberto Queiruga, of Biosfera, returned as our guest speaker to answer questions posed by students. Among the interesting topics raised, Alberto spoke about career pathways, highlights of his journey in the world of animal conservation, and the technical aspects of tagging sharks. 


Wild-Live Streaming Q&A, Featuring Airton Jesus of Turtle Foundation 

The Wild-Live Streaming team headed to Oakland School for our fifth live Q&A event, where Aitron Jesus, of Turtle Foundation, joined us as our guest expert speaker. Airton provided a brilliant insight into the methods used to protect sea turtles on Boa Vista, including the use of drone technology and anti-poaching dog patrols!

Meet the team behind the stream


I am a PhD student working at the Eizaguirre lab, at QMUL. My research is based on movement ecology, with a focus on predicting the response of loggerhead sea turtles, in Cabo Verde, to climate change. I have worked closely with a number of wildlife NGOs situated, across Cabo Verde, to successfully tag and track the in-water movements of nesting turtles. 


I am a PhD student working in the Eizaguirre lab at QMUL. My research focuses on the genomics of adaptation to climate change in sea turtles. I have spent 6 months in Cabo Verde over the last two years, working in collaboration with the NGO Project Biodiversity to study the mechanisms of temperature-dependent sex determination.


I am a PhD student here at QMUL, working within the Eizaguirre lab. My research project focuses on the interplay of ecological
and evolutionary processes shaping community structure and dynamics. Through my time at QMUL, I have been active in public engagement through both the Festival of Communities and the QMUL 2030 Strategy Launch event.

I am a PhD student and have recently joined the Eizaguirre lab at QMUL. My project will focus on climate change and computer modelling ocean current patterns to see how they affect the movement and nest site selection of loggerhead sea turtles, in Cabo Verde. Next summer, I will join the lab in working with wildlife NGOs out in Cape Verde to collect data in the field.


I am a PhD student working as part of the Eizaguirre lab. My research involves using aerial drones to investigate marine animal distributions and community dynamics. Throughout my fieldwork, I have been responsible for training Cabo Verde University students and collaborating with organisations based within Cabo Verde to fly aerial drones and manually process footage. 


I am a postdoctoral fellow, working in the Eizaguirre lab. My work aims to understand the effect of parasite infection on DNA methylation in a fish, the three-spined stickleback, within and across generations. I co-organises an online international journal club on epigenetics and created several workshops aimed at PhD students (“Introduction to evolutionary biology for infection biologists” and “Philosophy of science for biologists”).


I am a postdoctoral research assistant working as a member of the Eizaguirre lab. I am researching adaptations to temperature in adult and hatchling sea turtles. We hope that understanding these systems will help us protect wild populations from climate change. I have worked closely with several NGO's across Cabo Verde, performing hatchery experiments and deploying GPS tags on turtles. 


I am a PhD student working in the Eizaguirre lab. The focus of my research in on investigating how the operational sex ratio (OSR) of loggerhead sea turtles (Caretta caretta) changes throughout the mating season, with the aim of determining the impact of polyandrous mating systems on the rate of multiple paternity across Cabe Verde.
