Celebrate World Wildlife Day with Lizzie Speechley, a behavioural ecologist and PhD candidate at the University of Western Australia.

In this virtual incursion Lizzie will dive into the heart of global conservation efforts and share insights into the challenges and triumphs of protecting our planet’s precious biodiversity.

Lizzie will also discuss her experiences working with wildlife around the world and her career pathway for students that might be interested in getting involved with wildlife conservation.
