From Patricia Zurita, the first woman from a developing country to become CEO of an international conservation organisaion, to Steph Winnard, measuring albatross eggs on remote islands, BirdLife is full of amazing women. Conservation hasn’t always been a stereotypically “feminine” sector, but that’s changing, and there are now women all across the world who are instrumental in taking BirdLife’s valuable work to new and exciting places. We invited just a few of them to share their stories, asking them three questions: the day-to-day life of their role, the route they took to get to where they are today, and what advice they’d give to women wanting to enter their field. Read their stories here.
