Podcast | How to save species, sites and ecosystems with Nina Seale from Synchronicity Earth

In conservation, some issues tend to get a lot of attention from the donors when other, equally important issues, can be ignored. 

What do you do in this situation to raise the profile, and much-needed funding, to conserve the overlooked species, sites and ecosystems? 

To discuss this and more we’re speaking with Nina Seale from Synchronicity Earth. 

Synchronicity Earth aims to be a different kind of conservation organisation. They are research-driven, raising and distributing donor funding to the conservation sector often towards the less-sexy areas of work.  

As Communications Manager Nina’s role is to tell the stories of the conservation organisations and individuals supported by Synchronicity Earth. A talented writer, we talk about her day-to-day work in Comms, along with her career path and advice for people like you who might be interested to follow in her footsteps.  

We also discuss the importance of addressing the diversity deficit in conservation and the actions she’s taken to found an Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Working Group at Synchronicity Earth. 

The chat was recorded in front of a live audience of Conservation Careers Academy members, who got to ask their questions to Nina after the recording had finished. 

If you’d like to be in the audience of our podcast recordings, along with enjoying access to the world’s biggest conservation job board and a private members community of over 1,000 aspiring and professional conservationists, please check out the Conservation Careers Academy.
