Wildlife Making Club

Come and join us to learn about endangered and threatened species and make something to wear for the Gone Wild Festival. Wildlife Making is a workshop that explores animal conservation from salmon to elephants, and where you can learn about lots of different species that need our help. We have colouring sheets for guests to take part in and you can make an animal mask to take away with you. This workshop is hosted by Katy Thompson, a Research Associate at the Faculty of Science and Technology, Life and Environmental Sciences at Bournemouth University, England. She is interested in human wildlife conflict and the broader impact this is having on the environment across different spatial and temporal scales. Her areas of interest are in African wildlife, where her research focuses on ecosystem level conservation (African elephants and insects), environmental education and sustainable development within South Africa and Kenya. She is in the final year of her PhD investigating the broader implications of elephant conservation. Katie has been made a Freeman of the City of London because of her work in zoology and conservation in 2017. She is also a freelance artist and illustrator.
