After studying a Masters in Applied Wildlife Conservation, Sherilyn started an internship at BirdLife International in the conservation team. After her internship, Sherilyn began working as a Research Assistant for the European region of BirdLife. This position led to her working closely with BirdLife partners, increasing her understanding and passion for people and biodiversity, especially the capacity of these partners to change their communities through conservation. Since joining CLP, Sherilyn has been able to build on what she learned in her previous job, supporting the work of amazing early career conservationists in fascinating countries. She is passionate about travelling, animals, photography, and always keen on having a drink with amazing people from conservation and all over the world!
