This #WomenScienceDay featuring one of our amazing National Geographic explorers, @malaikavaz . Here’s more about her work in her own words! .
.
“I started off my career as a wildlife researcher at a production house and over the last few years, I’ve been working at the intersection of adventure sport, wildlife film and science communication.
.
.

As a wildlife presenter, I’m really passionate about bridging the gap between scientists and audiences – to synthesise research about the natural world in a way that is both nuanced and accessible. And as with my most recent television series, I absolutely love working on films that highlight lesser-known, less-exotic and endangered species!

With science, collaboration is key and I’m currently working on a multi-year project along with WildAid and the Wildlife Trust of India to research and push for the policy level protection of Manta and Mobula Rays against the transnational illegal trafficking pipeline.

As part of my Nat Geo Explorer grant, I’ve been documenting stories of Asiatic Lions, Leopards and Tigers. Working with scientists to understand the drivers of conflict and coexistence with people and big cats in India has undoubtedly been one of the best learning experiences for me personally. It’s a super exciting time right now, as our tribe of women working in the wild is definitely growing!” #womeninscience #explorer #wildlifephotography
