Madison Bowden-Parry

I'm Madi, a behavioural ecologist (MSc), science communicator and marine photographer from South Wales.

My experience is a mix of academic research, biodiversity restoration, community engagement and communications, project management and events/campaign coordination.


My broad academic interests lie in behavioural ecology (social ecology and evolution), biodiversity restoration and sustainable management.


More specifically, I am interested in 1) how human activity and changing environmental conditions are impacting species resilience and behaviour and 2) the best possible practice to integrate social-ecological systems into landscape-scale conservation and ecosystem-based management.


I work directly in citizen science, environmental management, stakeholder engagement and environmental outreach and communication.

"I am a conservationist with an optimistic and solution-based approach. I love nothing more than collaborative work that champions change for nature and combines natural and social sciences"
