Helen Meredith
Executive Director

Helen joined the ASA in 2016, following 10 years working on the coordination of global conservation actions for amphibians. She coordinated the EDGE Amphibians initiative at the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) from 2006-2011, developing conservation programmes for evolutionarily distinct and threatened species, and raising awareness of the plight of amphibians. She recently completed her PhD at the Institute of Zoology (ZSL) and the Durrell Institute of Conservation and Ecology (University of Kent) on “Improving the impact of amphibian conservation”, which focused on developing the practice of evidence-based conservation decision-making. During this time, she was also a Programme Officer for the IUCN SSC Amphibian Specialist Group, contributing to the development of ASG’s strategy and the Amphibian Conservation Action Plan (ACAP), which acts as a vital roadmap for the work ASA. Helen is committed to continuing to promote collaboration across the amphibian conservation community and beyond, and celebrating the amazing work of ASA’s partners around the world.
