Tatsuya Amano

As a conservation scientist, Tatsuya is working on understanding changes in global biodiversity and providing scientific evidence for its conservation. Through his work and his background as a conservation scientist originally from Japan, he has become increasingly interested in, and is committed to, unveiling the importance and consequences of language barriers in conservation and more broadly in science. Tatsuya is currently an ARC Future Fellow based at the School of Biological Sciences/Centre for Biodiversity and Conservation Science, the University of Queensland, Australia.

Pablo Negret

Pablo is a Senior Research Technician for the project helping to understand the impact of language differences in conservation outcomes for vertebrate species. He recently finished his PhD in ecology and biodiversity conservation, particularly understanding how different biological and anthropic factors affect biodiversity patterns and conservation outcomes in the South American tropics. He has also worked in different ecology and conservation projects, including assisted nesting of Arrau and yellow-spotted river turtles, camera trapping and vegetation plots in the Yasuní national park in Ecuador and big cat conservation and ecology with Panthera in Colombia.
