Behind the scenes

Valerio Donfrancesco

Founder & blogger

I started this blog with the intention of sharing my humble views on nature conservation with the wider web. I also hope my posts can make science more accessible and enjoyable to a broader audience. I hold a BSc in behavioural ecology and a MSc in conservation science and policy from the University of Exeter. Outside this blog, I am a PhD student at the University of Cambridge. My research looks at conservation values and conflicts through the lens of political ecology, with a particular focus on large carnivores. If you’re interested, you can find my latest scientific work here or follow me on twitter.
