About Anna Heath

Programme and Partner Manager

Throughout her time at Synchronicity Earth, Anna has had the opportunity to work across the Asian Species, Biocultural Diversity, and Congo Basin Programmes, but her main focus has been on our ocean work. She led the establishment of the High and Deep Seas Programme in 2017, as well as the development of this into the wider Ocean Programme from 2021.

Anna is also closely involved in wider work on how to ‘Reimagine Philanthropy’ by increasing funding and shifting power to locally-led organisations.

Anna has had an international upbringing, spending most of her life in Thailand before gaining an MSci in Environmental Biology from University College London. Following her degree, she spent two years building her experience in field research, which took her to the Philippines, Malaysian Borneo, and Mexico and built her skills across a range of conservation research approaches, as well as deepening her love for the natural world.

Anna loves wild swimming, snorkelling and SCUBA diving, and long walks with her rescue lurcher.

Anna joined Synchronicity Earth in September 2016 as a Junior Research Analyst. She had an international upbringing, spending most of her life in Thailand before moving back to the UK for university. She managed to stay in one place long enough to gain an MSci in Environmental Biology from University College London, but soon headed off to get experience in various forms of field research overseas. This involved freediving with whale sharks in the Philippines, tracking groups of howler monkeys in Mexico, and monitoring small mammal populations in the jungles of Malaysian Borneo. Her experience in the field has given her a broad understanding of both the science and the practicalities behind conservation work, which she enjoys applying to her role at Synchronicity Earth.
