Biocultural Diversity Programme
Miriam’s interest is in the intersection between environmental conservation and culture. Her early life experience of living in rural Papua New Guinea, surrounded by expansive wilderness and an abundance of wildlife etched within her a respect of land and all that it sustains. She has worked with both international and national not-for-profit conservation organisations in her home country. Miriam's experience includes remote field work, training national conservationists, fundraising for conservation, and project management. Miriam’s learning interest in montane endemic birdlife and its connection to human use led her to attain a PhD in Environmental Science and Conservation from James Cook University, Australia. Prior to Synchronicity Earth, she was a special advisor to The Christensen Fund.
