Are you studying and worried about the job hunt when you graduate? Are you looking for work right now, but are feeling a little lost, disillusioned or stuck? Do you want to protect Wilderness with your job, but are unsure how to start?
Then join our upcoming event, the ‘International Wilderness Week‘, on the 20th of October! Dr. Nick Askew, founder of the platform Conservation Careers, will give an exclusive talk about how to get a conservation job. He is a professional conservationist with over 20 years’ experience working across the academic, public, private, charity, and enterprise sectors.

The conservation sector is changing
Two important facts should encourage you to enter the conservation sector. First, the demand for qualified people increased significantly in the last two decades. And second, the sector is incredibly diverse. The typical image of a conservationist is somebody who works a lot outdoors, helping to protect endangered species. The rise of technology, however, also enhanced the possibilities of conservation. Filmmaking, online communication, marketing, and computer-based science, amongst others, are essential to the success of environmental protection. Other interesting niches, including eco-tourism, environmental education, and project management have also transformed and offer new possibilities.
If somebody knows about the how to succeed in the conservation sector, then it is Dr. Nick Askew and his team of Conservation Careers.
I’ve raised over £2,500,000 for conservation projects across 120 countries, and helped thousands of people to find work. I’m also usually modest … but I want to inspire you that you can do it, and success in this sector is VERY possible!
