Managing Director and Head of Research and Conservation
Kara Majerus is a Biological communicator specialising in broadcast, written, photographic and direct communications. She runs a sole trader company with the purpose of educating and engaging with audiences of all ages and levels. She holds a first class Honours BSc. in Zoology with Animal Behaviour from Bangor University, an MSc. in Biological Photography and Imaging from The University of Nottingham and an MSc. in Conservation Ecology from Oxford Brookes University. Her interest in organismal biology was born with her and has since grown considerably thanks to a childhood spent travelling and researching with her evolutionary ecologist father. Her dedication to conservation was irrevocably sealed during a three-month expedition to the rainforests and reefs of Indonesia where she carried out a dissertation regarding the ranging behaviours of Malay Civets, assisted in the surveying and monitoring of the coral reef ecosystems and achieved her PADI Advanced Open Water Diver qualification. Now a Rescue Diver, she is working toward obtaining Dive Master status. Since returning from Indonesia she has worked as: a Deputy-Branch Manager and Scientific Presenter – inspiring children to pursue science; a Research Assistant over a four year period working within the fields of entomology and genetics; and a Biological Communicator and Author. She has also been on the council of the Amateur Entomologists’ Society (AES) as well as developing and running the Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire branches of the British Naturalists Association (BNA). She continually endeavours to broaden her appreciation of the difficulties that face the Earth and the impact mankind is having on virtually all the ecosystems on our planet.
