I’m Bethan and I am a third year biologist at Jesus College. I volunteer weekly for the entomology department in the Oxford Natural History Museum during term time and during the hols I help out with conservation projects in Cyprus. I’m currently researching Siamese Fighting Fish as part of my undergraduate degree and am currently investigating the species in Thailand. I hope to see you at one of our talks!

I’m Pietro and I’m a second year biologist at St Peter’s! I’ve loved the wild outdoors for as long as I can remember, with hiking and birding two of my foremost hobbies. I volunteer with the RSPB (and would really recommend any such practical conservation work), love Attenborough documentaries (of course!) and am developing a strong interest in conservation policy. I look forward to meeting you at our events!
