Hey! I’m Elora. I have spent the last seven years working with conservation organizations developing media content, working in outreach, volunteer coordination, producing and campaign planning.
I began working with non-profit conservation organizations in the fall of 2010, at the age of 16, with Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. My father and I co-founded the SSCS Taiji Cove Guardian campaign. We spent three months on the ground reporting everyday about the plight of the dolphins.
Since then – I have traveled the world, co-produced an upcoming documentary with director Peter Jay Brown (film currently in litigation), and I have been fortunate to work with many non-profit organizations developing media content and outreach materials. I aspire to produce meaningful, though-provoking, and enjoyable stories that connect people with the natural world around them!
I graduated in 2016 with a B.A in Communication Studies and a Minor in Film Studies, from Western Washington University! I am proud to be earning my Master’s Degree in Communication and Digital Media at the University of Washington, with Cohort 2018 of the Communication Leadership and Storytelling program!
My relationship with blogging is complicated. You will notice I sometimes go months – and even years – without posting my thoughts. There are many excuses for this… but it mostly comes down to the fact I began blogging at a young age and I am still trying to figure out who I am and what I want to say to the world. Thanks for reading!
