My name is Sam Jones. I am a young researcher at the start of my career in conservation biology. I have been an avid birder/ornithologist and naturalist for as long as I can remember. I have worked on expedition teams in a number of countries worldwide, including work on some of the least studied species in the world. I have had a long fascination in the frontiers of such work especially in ornithologically unexplored areas. I am also keenly interested in the ethno-zoological conflicts that often drive activities which degrade the environment. My vision is to continue to be involved in pioneering research which mixes the rigour of applied science while making discoveries highly accessible through multimedia.
I am currently involved with the Heart of Borneo Project, based in the Murung Raya province of Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo.
