Nienke Beintema (1977) holds an MSc in Biology from the University of Groningen, The Netherlands. She specialised in animal ecology and science writing and graduated with honours. She also obtained a certificate in environmental education at the University of Minnesota (USA). Having worked as a consultant for the UN Waterbird Agreement AEWA and as a programme officer for the Netherlands National Commission for UNESCO, she has decided that writing is more satisfying for her than policy work. Currently she works as a freelance science writer and conference reporter for a wide range of clients, varying from the Delft University of Technology to the major UN-conventions on nature, environment and development. She divides her spare time among her three main passions: travelling, being active outdoors, and reading.
