We’re losing wildlife rapidly, and communications skills are vital
The latest WWF Living Planet Report showed that our planet’s wildlife populations have now plummeted by a staggering 68% since 1970 – and there are no signs that this downward trend is slowing.
Put bluntly, we’re failing to stop the loss of nature globally.
As Dr Marco Lambertini, Director General of WWF International warned: “Nature is declining globally at rates unprecedented in millions of years. The way we produce and consume food and energy, and the blatant disregard for the environment entrenched in our current economic model, has pushed the natural world to its limits.”
As a result, conservation organisations have identified the urgent need to share clearer messages, and encourage more action.
At Conservation Careers we analysed 29,767 conservation jobs, from over 100 countries, and a massive 41% explicitly wanted people with communications skills or experience. Of these, 9% (2,726) were communications specialist roles.
The goal of this online course is to help you deliver effective communications activities within conservation. Making you more employable, competitive and better at your job.
The structure of the course follows a detailed analysis of what employers are actively looking for when hiring conservationists and is being taught by communications guru Lloyd Gofton.
During the course you’ll learn how to:
- Produce a communications plan for conservation projects.
- Write engaging content about conservation projects.
- Get press and media coverage for conservation projects.
- Build and engage audiences on social media for conservation projects.
- Create content to support conservation campaigns.
- Measure the success of your communications activities.
Since launching the course in 2020, we’ve been delighted to get a 100% satisfaction rating from over 400 Comms Stars. PLUS we’ve been thrilled to see many of them land conservation jobs directly as a result of the training.
"Thanks to this course, I have just secured a dream job as Head of Communications for a UK based conservation charity, and I have been able to perform confidently both at work and at interview stage, drawing directly upon my learning from this course!” Kate Stephenson (Kate On Conservation), UK.
We’re offering 33% off the course until Friday 17th November.
