About Joshua

Josh is originally from Goa, India, although his parents were born and raised in Kenya. Having always had a passion for animals and wildlife, he chose to study Zoology at the undergraduate level and then an MSci in Biodiversity and Conservation, both at the University of Southampton. He currently works at Surrey Wildlife as a Countryside Assistant, helping with conservation projects and engaging communities with biodiversity.

During his time at university, he was one of the very few students on the course from an ethnic minority. He also faced multiple financial barriers, as he often had to volunteer or even pay organizations to gain conservation experience. As a member of UniArk, he would love to help people from difficult backgrounds overcome these barriers and become more involved with conservation.
