Working at ClientEarth brings together the issues I’m most passionate about: environmental advocacy, legal research, ecological awareness, and the protection of biodiversity and wildlife. I believe ecological preservation is not only about us, but also about nature itself. Finally I have found a place where my profession and my personal sensitiveness are aligned, working with a team of inspiring people to address the world’s biggest environmental challenges.
