We asked the Conservation Careers community about the biggest barriers they face to working in conservation - and 'Getting conservation experience' was the #1 challenge.

While other job sectors have clear pathways to employment, paid internships and guaranteed jobs, it can feel frustrating and overwhelming trying to become employable as a conservationist.

But getting conservation experience can be much easier, less costly (and more fun!) than you think.

In this webinar we guide you through how to get conservation experience, using 10 years of experience at Conservation Careers and 30 years' experience in the sector. 

We've landed fantastic conservation internships and volunteering opportunities, and we've helped 1000s of aspiring conservationists find quality experiences, too. 

You'll walk away with a step-by-step process to get conservation experience and armed with great resources - regardless of your financial situation, flexibility, age or career stage.
