I am a native of Namibia now living in the midlands of the Republic of Ireland. No academic background in the natural environment, but always had a keen interest in nature. In Ireland I got involved in a community-led conservation project since 2000, when the community prevented a semi-state company from harvesting a raised bog adjacent to the town for horticultural purposes. The Abbeyleix Bog Project is now leading the way in community-led conservation in collaboration with multiple stakeholders. See https://bit.ly/31i5BID. That's my voluntary life.
I am currently working as development officer for the Community Wetlands Forum www.communitywetlandsforum.ie
That pays the bills
