About Thirza Loffeld

My background is mainly in species conservation, education and capacity development. I researched mother-young interactions in gorillas and chimpanzees, in captivity and the wild. After that, I worked for three years in Indonesia, where I developed and implemented youth ambassador and community engagement programmes on local and regional scales. I obtained a PhD on capacity development for conservation and work as Community Manager at WildHub and as a Lecturer in Conservation Social Science at DICE, University of Kent.

Hi Henry, many thanks for this useful article. I would like to share this update with our WildHub community and was wondering how you added the video loop at the end. I made a video loop myself using Quicktime but cannot see a way to upload it in the post itself. The post is actually a video tutorial that I added using Create > a video and the text accompanies this video. Many thanks in advance for sharing your insights!

Hi team at Zapnito! That's great news, many thanks for this useful change and update. Perhaps I have overlooked the latest updates on this; what does the feature "My Network - Activity" display?

Absolutely love this feature! Thank you so much for developing this! Just in time for our annual festival - would be grand to have all sessions displayed on the one Events page!

Great update, thank you! Unfortunately I couldn't make it in person this time, but I appreciate the video and email with the link to this. Wonderful to hear about the contributor email - very useful to drive engagement - and I liked hearing about the conversation tool progress as well. Thanks again!
