Bethan John

Environmental journalist

Specialising in biodiversity conservation and social justice, Bethan is interested in uniting creatives and conservationists to produce compelling stories that uncover solutions to some of the world’s most challenging environmental problems.
Since 2012, she has been working alongside conservationists in-the-field to better understand and communicate the complex social, economic and environmental issues facing communities living in some of the most biodiverse places on Earth.
Committed to training the next generation of conservation communicators, in 2017 Bethan created and co-ran a Multimedia Internship at a field research station in the remote Peruvian Amazon in collaboration with teammate Eilidh. This experiential education programme provides workshops in writing, photography and videography, as well as career development for young adults wishing to break into the competitive media industry.
