Kirsty Crawford


Kirsty currently works for the Marine Conservation Society, as the Volunteer and Community Engagement Manager for Scotland, managing hundreds of dedicated volunteers and delivering ocean-based conservation outreach.


She has taken a few different paths: from her undergraduate in Journalism and Creative Writing, 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, Buglife, The Conservation Volunteers, 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 now uses her artwork as a way of connecting others to the natural world through art lessons with fundraising and outreach organisations such as Wild Life Drawing, The Conservation Volunteers and ZSL. She believes everyone can be a conservationist even if they don't work in the sector. As long as they have passion, they are still important in the fight for change.
