Sterrin Smalbrugge

    Sterrin is a Dutch ecologist and herpetologist. She graduated Cum Laude from Wageningen University and conducts research on reptiles worldwide. Some of her study topics include reptile-environment relationships and potential effects of climate change on the distribution of crocodilians. Besides her research, Sterrin is passionate about education. She owns her own education business that allows her to educate a wide variety of audiences. From small children to university students, Sterrin’s goal is to spread the message that reptiles are worthy of conservation, just like any other species. She specialises in venomous snakes, and enjoys giving handling courses. Furthermore, she is involved in documentary making and she’s currently writing a children’s book on reptiles, which will be published in September by Luitingh-Sijthoff.
