Wildlife and nature conservation is important for saving animals from extinction, saving ecosystems from collapse, and ultimately saving humankind from ourselves. Wildlife conservation is protecting wildlife by ensuring they live and educating people on how they can live in harmony with other species sustainably. Chrissy is a content writer who specializes in wildlife and nature conservation.
Here is an interview with Chrissy By Ussi Abuu, WildHub Conservation Catalyst
Hi Chrissy! Can you introduce yourself, what do you do professionally?
Chrissy: Hi Ussi! I'm a content writer that specializes in wildlife and nature conservation.
Let's talk a little bit about conservation blogs.
How do I start conservation blogging without experience?
Chrissy: The great thing about conservation blogging is that there is always room for growth and improvement. You can start with what knowledge and skills you have and just begin writing. Once you feel comfortable with your research methods and you’re ready to publish, find a website service that fits your budget. Choose a title that resonates with your audience, get active on social media, and follow others in the conservation community.
How can blog writers take action to address the problem of climate change, and how can they make their voices heard?
Chrissy: A conservation blog writer’s focus is on the awareness and communication of problems like climate change. You may begin with a few followers, but keep producing content because eventually, you would be the reason someone takes an interest in environmentalism. We all had a moment where we began thinking with Earth in mind, so you are that inspiration for others.
Let’s talk a little bit more about your involvement with WildHub.
How did you hear about WildHub and why did you join?
