Dr Nathalie Pettorelli

Building the First Global Picture of 'Protected Area' Effectiveness
Dr Nathalie Pettorelli is a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the Zoological Society of London. Dr Pettorelli was awarded a Fellowship for her research into how effective protected areas are in conserving the world's major ecosystems. Monitoring protected areas is vital to ensuring ecosystems continue to provide clean water, wild food and genetic materials to societies. Protected areas also mitigate the impacts of climate change through carbon capture storage and acting as a buffer against natural disasters. Nathalie's innovative research will build the first global picture of protected area effectiveness. The Fellowship will help Nathalie to carry out satellite data extraction and analysis as well as undertaking collaborative visits to space agencies such as NASA.
