This is the story of Alice Reisfeld: a conservation leader in Brazil with a passion for connecting people with the beautiful birds and forests on their doorstep.

Ten years ago, when Alice was just starting out in her career, she joined an intrepid team of conservationists at SAVE Brasil (BirdLife International in Brazil).

Supported by CLP, the team engaged local communities in the protection of a threatened area of Atlantic Forest famed for its rare birds and rich biodiversity: Serra do Urubu (an Important Bird and Biodiversity Area).

After successfully completing the CLP project, Alice became a Project Coordinator at SAVE Brasil and was then promoted to Project Manager in just three years. Alice now oversees eight projects, including the expansion of the original CLP project.

"Over the past 5 years, the team has implemented 50 hectares of forest restoration and seven agroforestry modules in smallholder farms, and we have recently received two grants to scale up these efforts over the next four years," said Alice.

And to top it all off, Alice has recently been shortlisted for a prestigious Whitley Award 👏

She attributes the support she has received from CLP over the years to being a key part of her success:

"The CLP training (in Canada) I participated in was a real game changer in my career and significantly influenced my professional life. Also, a great deal of what I have learned over the years was through exchanges with others in the CLP alumni network. I find it very enriching to interact with other conservationists who are facing similar challenges."

Meet Esther Githinji - a conservation force to be reckoned with 💪

For the last year, Esther has been engaged in a CLP Career Placement with @wildlabsnet to grow and support the conservation technology community in East Africa 🌱

As a young Kenyan conservationist, with little previous experience of conservation tech, this career placement gave Esther the chance to learn more about this emerging space and develop her own ideas to amplify the important work being done, while getting the support and resources she needed 💗

And she has been remarkably successful. Not only did Esther have the opportunity to speak at the inaugural Africa Climate Summit (held in Nairobi, Kenya, in September 2023), she has also won a @canva Community Award (Campaign Champions category) and secured a permanent position with WILDLABS.

These achievements are both a testament to Esther's incredible talent and dedication, and a realisation of our vision for CLP placements to act as a 'springboard' for emerging conservationists.

"The skills I've developed during my CLP career placement with WILDLABS have been instrumental in achieving this next step in my career," said Esther.

"If you want to go fast, go alone.
If you want to go far, go together."

🤝 Wise words shared by CLP alumna Sarika Baidya last week, as she described her team's efforts to engage local communities in the conservation of a little-studied, globally Endangered insect: Ludlow's Bhutan Glory swallowtail.

🦋 Sarika and her team are engaged in a CLP-supported project to conserve the butterfly in its last stronghold in India: Eaglenest Wildlife Sanctuary, Arunachal Pradesh.

🙏 Last week, the team organised a seminar and workshop together with Arunachal Pradesh Forest Department to share knowledge and discuss conservation initiatives with the local community, members of the Singchung Bugun Village Community Reserve, and other stakeholders.

Sarika said: "I am highly indebted to the Conservation Leadership Programme for first time providing support for insect conservation in India.😍 I am grateful to my team for standing by my side through thick and thin, enduring me in happiness and sadness, and making my journey of biodiversity conservation memorable."

Over the last few days, CLP staff were honoured to meet seven ground-breaking conservationists, including two CLP alumni, who have been just announced as this year's Whitley Award winners! 🏆

The winners include CLP alumnus Leroy Ignacio, the president and founding member of Guyanese NGO South Rupununi Conservation Society, who is working to protect the endangered red siskin, a bird threatened by the illegal pet trade and habitat loss.

📸 CLP staff Kate Tointon met Leroy at the Whitley Fund for Nature NGO networking event today. Leroy explained how the Whitley Award will help him expand and enhance the protected area for the red siskin in the South Rupununi 🙌

We were also overjoyed to see three-time CLP award-winner, Dr Purnima Devi Barman, receive the Whitley Gold Award. Purnima has spearheaded a movement of more than 10,000 women to save the greater adjutant stork and its wetlands habitat in Assam, India.

📸 Kate also met Purnima at the event today, along with The Rufford Foundation CEO and former CLP Executive Manager, Stuart Paterson - who Purnima described as an incredible mentor to her, particularly during the early stages of her career when she won her first CLP award.

Congratulations to all the award-winners! 👏🙌🎉

We are waiting for West and Central Africa 💐

Meet Esther Githinji - a conservation force to be reckoned with 💪

For the last year, Esther has been engaged in a CLP Career Placement with @wildlabsnet to grow and support the conservation technology community in East Africa 🌱

As a young Kenyan conservationist, with little previous experience of conservation tech, this career placement gave Esther the chance to learn more about this emerging space and develop her own ideas to amplify the important work being done, while getting the support and resources she needed 💗

And she has been remarkably successful. Not only did Esther have the opportunity to speak at the inaugural Africa Climate Summit (held in Nairobi, Kenya, in September 2023), she has also won a @canva Community Award (Campaign Champions category) and secured a permanent position with WILDLABS.

These achievements are both a testament to Esther's incredible talent and dedication, and a realisation of our vision for CLP placements to act as a 'springboard' for emerging conservationists.

"The skills I've developed during my CLP career placement with WILDLABS have been instrumental in achieving this next step in my career," said Esther.
