Anna’s work with the Species Programme focusses on supporting the implementation of species-related Conventions and Agreements, such as the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) and the EU Wildlife Trade Regulations. This includes the production of analyses and assessments of species subject to international trade.
Anna has a BSc in Geography from the University of Liverpool and an MSc in Conservation Science from Imperial College London. Her MSc research, carried out in collaboration with Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust and the Bolivian Amphibian Initiative, investigated the exploitation of the critically endangered Titicaca water frog Telmatobius culeus. Prior to joining WCMC, Anna worked for WWF-UK, where she supported the International Programmes team, and she has previously conducted fieldwork in communities around Lake Titicaca in the Bolivian Andes and in remote parts of the Ecuadorian Amazon.
