Conservation Careers – the journey so far

Conservation Careers was founded one year ago with the belief that all wildlife is beautiful, and it deserves an army of passionate, professional, and committed conservationists helping it to thrive. What follows is a quick snapshot from our first year – in numbers:

  • 22 amazing volunteers built Conservation Careers.
  • 87 detailed careers advice articles were published.
  • 256 professional conservationists have shared their expertise.
  • 1,421 vacancies were listed from 351 employers.
  • 14,491 people followed us via Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+ and email.
  • 95,357 people visited our website from 209 countries.


What’s next? 

We can’t rest on our laurels. Nature urgently needs us to keep growing fast towards our mission of helping every conservationist on the planet to have a rewarding and impactful career.

Looking forwards we’ll be expanding our website and services. We’ll be: launching a Q&A Forum to help answer all your questions; exploring the wonderful world of webinars; launching an e-book; re-imagining conservation volunteering, and; improving our email alerts and job filtering.

We’re also launching  membership schemes on our site. For as little as £1.50 per month – or half a pint – you’ll be able to access all areas of our website.

Why paid memberships?

Conservation Careers is a social enterprise built by a team of volunteers who have together dedicated over 1,500 hours of time free of charge. All revenue from job vacancies has been reinvested into our website.

In order to create sustainable change in the world, we now need to create a sustainable business.

Memberships will allow us to invest in dedicated staff time and website development; guiding you towards your impactful career in conservation.
