Catarina C. Ferreira

Catarina is a conservation biologist with a PhD in Biology specialized in Terrestrial Ecology, Epidemiology and Wildlife Management from Castilla-La Mancha University, Spain. She has dedicated her career to advancing our understanding of the impacts human-induced stressors have on biodiversity, and has used the findings of her research to inform species-at-risk conservation initiatives in Europe and North America. Her almost 20 years of experience in the international biodiversity conservation community across different sectors have served her well to understand how biodiversity knowledge needs to be translated to effect change. She is delighted to join the Editorial Board of CC, as part of her ongoing efforts to improve science communication among conservationists and mainstream biodiversity conservation across sectors through more interdisciplinary collaborations.
