Dakota Reid


My name is Dakota and I'm a conservation officer with RSPB NI. I studied Politics and later an MSc in Ecological Management, both at Queen's University, and I was a long term volunteer with the RSPB and Ulster Wildlife. Outside of my job I am an environmental campaigner and record and photograph birds, insects and marine life. I have applied for the programme because I want to become a more effective advocate for the natural world and connect with other people who are fighting for a more sustainable future locally. I hope to learn about making a difference by working with people from different sectors and develop my leadership skills.
