Cooper, Michelle

Michelle Cooper completed her BSc in Animal Biology from the University of Melbourne in 2003. She has since worked in zoos and aquaria focusing on education, husbandry, community engagement, research, fundraising and science communication. With a soft spot for the plight of lesser known cryptic species, Michelle arrived in Cambridge last year to undertake the MPhil in Conservation Leadership and develop her knowledge and networks to support conservation initiatives. As a science communicator, Michelle volunteered her services to help manage the Planet Earth component of this year’s Pint of Science Festival in Cambridge and worked with fellow Darwin College students to organise the One World Challenge – a global behaviour change challenge for university students at last year’s COP21 which resulted in 559 students from 24 countries recording over 70,000 positive actions for the planet.
