Chloe Buiting, DVM. is an Australian veterinarian and wildlife conservationist who is passionate about our natural world and all the species that inhabit it. Part of her childhood was spent growing up on Australia’s beautiful Lord Howe Island, and it is this time that inspired her to pursue a career in the field of conservation. She serves as Director of Outreach for Loop Abroad, a student travel organization that began with a singular mission: provide the best hands-on study abroad for students pursuing careers working with animals. And just recently, Jungle Doctor Conservation Scholarship funded 71 Maasai students to go on safari to see their wildlife for the first time. Chloe is translating her passion into opportunities designed to benefit and inspire future generations. Buckle up this is one wild ride as Chloe takes us through some of whys of the current universal malaise we are experiencing, including the state of the koala population after the catastrophic Australian bush fires last summer. There are many brilliant minds offering solutions and we will learn about some that are taking place, such as, innovative programs in the fields of 3d printing, green cities, animal translocation and initiatives such as the 30X30 initiative that looks to protect 30% of the land and sea by 2030, and mountain gorilla vaccinations to prevent the spread of shared diseases We also unpack why there is an urgent need to end the illegal wildlife trade. It is a lot to digest, but stick it out… we promise to make you laugh (or cry) when Chloe tells us the funniest if not a tad bit harrowing story of catching a wild giraffe. Chloe is passionate about highlighting the importance of wildlife conservation, and shares her adventures on Instagram as @jungle_doctor and through her website jungledoctor.org
