What does a Naturalist actually do?? People ask….
Well, the definition based in the dictionary is “an expert in or student of natural history.”
We are your everyday David Attenborough’s, the bridge between the scientific community and every day people. This is what part of my job looks like as a science communicator, the other part is being a David Attenborough commentator on the natural world we see whilst on expedition.
Just a few of my favourite topics to present are: ‘the life history of crocodiles’, and ‘conservation in the Kimberley’.
My career as a Naturalist has developed over the years, and I’m keen to encourage young kids to find a good path in working with animals or the environment.
I’ve written a blog article on my website, so feel free to share it if you know of any kids who are budding Naturalists
