About Esther Jacobs

Fire Island Conservation projects aim to empower communities with alternative income & protein sources to poaching.

A warm welcome to WildHub, Esther! Great to have you join us. 

Which partnerships are you looking to make? 

We have a unique little island that's unexplored so keen to find researchers who want to consider projects there on the coral reef species or megafauna. To continue fund the efforts to make it a safe haven for turtle populations, we offer SCUBA retreats on the island, which researchers etc can also use as a base.
