Monica Peters

Hamilton, New Zealand.

Community-led biodiversity restoration, conservation and citizen science are where my personal and professional interests overlap. I run my own consultancy people+science. I contract to NGOs, science professionals, community members and government agencies on projects which often sit at the interface between science and the public. My background spans conservation, research, international development and fine arts - each a different lens through which to understand our environment and our relationship to it. My skill set includes multi-stakeholder project design and delivery, workshop facilitation, science communication, social and ecological research, and large-scale science event management. My work spans hands-on operational to governance and strategic design.
