Webinar | Five things stopping you from becoming a conservationist in 2024

You’re passionate about our planet. Driven by purpose. Seeking a career that matches your values and makes a real difference.

But you’re not sure how to find conservation jobs or to network in the sector. You’re struggling to get conservation experience and become competitive for jobs (without spending lots of time and $£). You put in application after application, without any interviews or job offers.

If this sounds like you, it’s time for a change.

We asked our conservation community about the biggest barriers they face to working in conservation – and the challenges are clear.

But so are the solutions.

In this special webinar, we guide you through the biggest barriers to working in conservation in 2024. Using 10 years of experience at Conservation Careers and 30 years’ experience in the sector, we explain these barriers in detail and why they stop most people from succeeding.
