Building skill sets and knowledge and then applying them is what moving conservation forward is all about. Gabriela Ochoa, affectionately known by all as Gaby, is an enthusiastic conservationist focusing on sharks, rays and turtles and our National Coordinator for Honduras who has been keen to build her professional skills.
After much finger-gnawing, she received the great news that was awarded a place to pursue a masters at the University of Exeter’s top rated Center for Ecology and Conservation and simultaneously received a spot in the prestigious Emerging Wildlife Conservation Leader program. Spanning two years, this international program builds the capacities of young conservationists that have been identified as future leaders in their field.
Taking part in EWCL would not have been possible without the generous support of the World Wildlife Fund.
We look forward to Gaby applying the many lessons learnt to our program in Honduras as the programs unfold.
