MEET CICELY – OUR WILDLIFE PICTURE RESEARCHER!
1. Tell us a bit about your role!
I’m interning as a Wildlife Picture Researcher this summer, working in the team delivering Wildscreen ARK, the newest iteration of Arkive. My role includes locating and cataloguing archive content, market research, and preparing material for focus groups, among other things!
I have a degree in Art History and am currently working on my Master’s dissertation in History, which is an environmental history of the Newbury Bypass. Between my degrees I worked as a writer and researcher for a political autobiography. Working at Wildscreen has brought together lots of different interests for me: research, visual content, archival work, and the environment.
3. What motivates you?
The desire to what I can to push for a more just, fair, and sustainable world!
4. If you could change one thing about the natural history industry, what would it be?
5. What are your career goals?
Working in a team combined with a reasonable amount of independence are where I work best. Having a creative aspect to my work is also the dream!
6. Favourite moment working at Wildscreen?
I’ve only been here for a short time but working in a close-knit team and being directly involved with project development is very rewarding.
7. What’s your favourite story from nature?
Birds using anti-bird spikes to create their nests… Nothing’s more metal than that.
Fun, inspiring, determined.
A bird so that I could inverse the hostile bird environment by repurposing anti-bird spikes into building materials.
10. What’s a fun fact about you?
I play guitar, bass, piano, mandolin, and sing!
