Wild Asia maintains a lean and passionate team, and it is this dedicated and experienced group that keeps our programmes alive. Our team is small but very efficient, and continues to learn, develop and evolve with the changing times.
One of the striking aspects of Wild Asia is how small our Core Team actually is! We work on projects and build better progammes, and yet, still find time to innovate, nurture younger members and evolve. Here are some of the core people behind Wild Asia.
Beyond the technical Advisory Team that drives the innovation and consulting work within Wild Asia, our programmes are managed on a day-to-day basis by a team of three:
