Podcast | Happiest times as conservationists

What are our happiest times as conservationists?

At Conservation Careers we help thousands of people start or switch their careers into conservation, but we rarely talk about the fun side of the conservation movement.

If you’re aspiring to work in conservation, we thought you might enjoy a little inspiration…

Joining our host Dr Nick Askew is Head of Community, Dr Fernando Mateos-González – or Nando he’s often known – and Head of Engagement Kristi Foster, who together have nearly 50 years’ experience working in the conservation sector.

Here are our happiest memories from our careers working in conservation.

Warning: if you’re not already working in wildlife conservation, this episode might make you want to become a conservationist, too!
