Explore the barriers and opportunities for the women who've dedicated their careers to conserving 'mother Earth'! Join us for a free webinar with Kirsty Crawford and Laura Cuppage of & another thing, an honest place for conservation issues.


Kirsty Crawford


Kirsty currently works for an environmental charity as a Senior Citizen Science Project Officer, delivering a host of nature and community based wildlife programmes.

She has taken a few different paths: from her undergraduate in Journalism and Creative Writing and a Performing Arts Diploma and years spent in London as a professional performer. To internships with the BBC Natural History Unit, roles at London Zoo and Buglife, then finally graduating with an MSc in Wildlife Biology and Conservation. 

She is passionate about being 'more than one thing' in life and advocating for the impact of environmental education through many different sectors.




Laura Cuppage


After graduating with a BA Hons Textile for Fashion and Interiors Degree, Laura has worked in many different industries. It was in her role at ZSL London Zoo where she entered into the world of conservation. She worked as a Presenter and then Live Interpretation Developer, writing engaging educational content to deliver to audiences live. She also undertook freelance illustration work for ZSL including the artwork for worldwide animal adoption packs.  



After leaving the zoo in 2019, Laura returned home to Bournemouth and is currently working in an eco-friendly café, concentrating on using her artwork as a way of communicating passion for the natural world. She wants to reassure those who don't work in conservation but have a passion for it, that they can still be conservationists and are still as important in the fight for change.
