Atul Kumar

I have 20 years of experience working in the environmental sector, a MSc with Distinction in Environmental Management and First Class BA in Geography.

My approach to helping the environment and wildlife includes writing, presenting, podcasting and fundraising.

My most recent interview in March 2021 was for the Knowing Nature podcast’s Film Club series, where we took a deep dive into the film Arrival, and how thinking from an alien perspective can help us to solve the climate and biodiversity crises. Please click their logo below to have a listen:
