James borrell is a conservation scientist and science communicator, with a particular interest in how species adapt to changing climate.
I’ve been running this website for a little over three years now. I started off with a few stories I wanted to share, and and very little idea of how to go about it.
Slowly, I’ve tried to develop it into a resource for aspiring conservation biologists, as well as a blog about my expeditions, fieldwork and conservation projects. I’ve enjoyed watching my readership grow too, and I recently published my stats for 2013.
But things can always be improved. So I’d like my readers to tell me how I can do better.
Please feel free to tell me what you think in the comments. Or if some questions are easier, here’s some things I’m hoping to find out.
1. Is this your first time here, or are you a regular?
2. What works and what doesn’t work? Is my website easy to use, do you get lost or are there too many pages?
James is a highly acclaimed public speaker, delivering keynotes, lectures and debates to a wide range of audiences including students, the public, conservation practioners and scientists. Rather than further polarizing already divisive conservation topics, James aims to explain the complexity and nuance of conservation. What we choose to do over the next five decades, will profoundly influence the diversity of life on eath for the next 5 million years. It’s never been a more important, or more exciting time to be a conservationist.
