Tap into our new and exciting community-focused conversation series!  In this first season of InConversation, we're in East Africa with host Esther Githinji. Listen in as we chat one-on-one with your favourite conservation technology players to get first-hand perspectives on their work, research, hopes and aspirations for our growing industry.

Let's Have a Conversation...

InConversation is a vibrant community-focused conversation series, where our team members here at WILDLABS get the unique opportunity to sit down for a light-hearted chat with some of your favourite conservation technology players. 

You could call this series a podcast, a vlog, or a knowledge exchange forum and you'd be correct. It features all the above varieties and hopes to bring pressing, diverse and new topics within our conservation technology community that matter most to you to life in an engaging and easy to digest format.

For some of the topics here on WILDLABS, we feel like we could chat about them all day long. InConversation offers a great, open and flexible space to unpack these topics with the help of brilliant experts working across the areas of conservation tech across the globe.
