Speaker: 

THE WONDERS OF THE GALAPAGOS AND WHAT THEY TEACH US with Anson Baker-Berry and Isabela Tapia.

Isabela Tapia is a conservation biologist from the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador, holding an MSc in Biodiversity Conservation from the University of Southampton. She possesses experience in multidisciplinary research related to Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for environmental management, participatory GIS, data science, socio-ecological systems, ecological restoration, management of giant tortoise populations, giant tortoise diet, and marine invasive species. Isabela has a deep passion and interest in working to bridge the gap between scientific research and local knowledge and advocates for more collaborative, adaptive and inclusive conservation models. Her ultimate career goal is to create a paradigm shift in the field of science and conservation, where local, historically underrepresented and oppressed voices and perspectives are valued and actively involved in decision-making processes. Isabela wants to pioneer innovative and community-driven conservation models that empower individuals to become stewards of their own environment.

Anson Baker-Berry is an MSc student in the University of Southampton’s Maritime Science Engineering program. He is an avid sailor, international traveler and wildlife photographer with photography experience in the Himalayas and across the Pacific Ocean. He has a deep passion for protecting the environment and slowing climate change. Anson is planning on using his degree to reduce carbon emissions through the development of emission free high-speed water transportation. This will continue on the work of his undergraduate thesis, designing an electric hydro-foiling fast ferry on the basis of an existing hull shape, which has recently led to a 1.83 million pound UK governmental grant for the construction of a demonstration model.
