OUR CHAIRPERSONS

SAM LAW

South Devon College

 

@ayeaye_sam

 

Session: 10:10am - 12:50pm 

 

Growing up in inner city Salford, most of Sam's experience with nature involved building dens in the local park. This small link was enough to instil a lifelong curiosity of the natural world, and was the driving force behind her future career path. After completing a BSc (Hons) in Veterinary Nursing, Sam undertook an MSc in Zoo Conservation Biology and began to focus on conservation management, with particular interest in Madagascan fauna. She is currently a part-time PhD student, studying the suitability of mixed species housing for ring-tailed lemurs in zoos, mixing her passion for animal health, welfare and behaviour. Alongside her studies, Sam also lectures on Animal Science related programmes of study at both Further and Higher Education levels. She truly believes that the inclusion of nature in education is pivotal to habitat and species conservation and that inspiring young people to engage with wildlife anywhere in the world will protect nature for future generations. Sam is passionate about the important role that education can play in both Community Based Conservation and Integrated Conservation and Development Projects, where in Madagascar lots of success has been achieved.
