For those of you who don't know me, my name is Roxy Taya Furman and I am a zoologist who is focused on using public engagement, photography, film, and other mediums to raise awareness about conservation of the natural world.

I hold a First Class Honours degree in BSc Zoology (INT), with my Undergraduate research project focusing on social learning and pack structure in African painted wolves. From September, I will be returning to University to study Wildlife Filmmaking at the University of West England. As part of this, I will be making a 12 minute documentary to raise awareness about conservation of my chosen species. I am in need of all the support that I can get to make this happen to the best of my ability, hopefully resulting in this film having a wide impact and creating some form of instrumental change.

Alongside my studies, I use social media to share my passion for the natural world with others, regularly posting photos and videos on my account, @roxythezoologist, with the goal of reconnecting people with animals and inspiring them to get outside, have fun, and get involved with conservation initiatives themselves.
After only 6 months of owning my first camera, my photography work was featured by BBC Earth, BBC UK, and BBC Brasil! I have also done lots of human portrait photography, and worked as the photographer for the #HumansOfXR campaign for the Extinction Rebellion group. This work has had editorial coverage in papers such as the Metro and the Guardian.

My love of animals and drive to save them extends to my everyday life as well. I abide to a strict plant-based diet, as well as running my own business, Zephyr Eco Market, where I sell eco-friendly alternatives to mainstream products, working closely with One Tree Planted and Painted Dog Conservation UK. I run this business entirely on my own, and any extra help will mean that I am able to invest more into this, helping me to create a greater impact. Through social media, I educate others about the threats our planet is facing, raising awareness about plastic pollution, palm-oil use, animal agriculture, the exotic pet trade, and much more, and suggest ways that we can all help to overcome these issues by living more consciously on a day-to-day basis.

I truly believe that there is hope for the future, and the more people that are inspired to get involved with conservation, the better! The more support I receive, the better I am able to achieve this goal, and the more people I can help to start up similar initiatives of their own.
Tiers
Cygnet
$2 or more per month

A part of my Patreon family, helping me to create content each week to inspire others to live a more harmonious life with our planet.

Puffin
$5 or more per month

By supporting this tier you will be making an impact to the projects I can take on each month. The more I can say yes to, the greater impact I can have at trying to inspire others to get outside and involved in conservation initiatives themselves.

Otter
$15 or more per month

This support will significantly impact the amount of content I can produce each month. I am so passionate about making an impact in helping to save the beautiful biodiversity on our planet, and you will be helping me to achieve this. As a thank you for this, you will receive a monthly print of one of my photographs.

Deer
$25 or more per month

Supporting me in this way will help me to invest each month in promoting sustainable living and conservation. By reaching new audiences, it increases the chance of raising awareness to those who aren't already interested in these things (the whole idea of preaching to the already converted) and hopefully inspiring them to make changes in their lives to help our planet. As a thank you for this, you will receive access to a 'behind the scenes' video each month, which will include moments in the field, editing of photos, and tips for sustainable living.

Elephant
$50 or more per month

This level of support will literally be game-changing for me. Everything I do currently is off my own back, so it can be really hard to manage everything I am trying to achieve. I would use this to create more video content, helping to raise awareness about various different species, as well as getting involved in more public engagement to help spread this to a wider audience. You will be massively helping me on my journey trying to protect the beautiful biodiversity on our planet. As a thank you for this, you will receive a monthly print to one of my photographs, access to a 'behind the scenes' video each month (which will include moments in the field, editing of photos, and tips for sustainable living), and a 30-minute one-to-one call each month, either to offer my advice or just to fill you in with my upcoming projects and goals.

Goals
10% complete
When I reach this goal I will be able to produce at least two videos per month, helping to raise awareness about various different species, inspiring others to get outside and see wildlife, and do all they can in their daily life to help save them.
