Why join our global community of conservation professionals?

Like Comment

Many conservationists have shared with me that they do not have regular access to the information and tools needed to do their job properly. Also, the social support we need to keep up our motivation is often missing and some of us feel isolated in our work. What if we could build our own community to help solve problems faster, create new partnerships, and come up with solutions that can have a much greater impact for wildlife. A community to help refresh our motivation, and help each other to progress in our careers.

Well we have an opportunity to build such a community right now. I am helping to build this online platform - to provide a safe, supportive, respectful space where we as conservation professionals can come together. It’s a place to learn from one another, innovate or just hang out with like-minded people.

And this is where I need your help - our WildHub community and online platform will only work if it meets the needs of conservation professionals like you, so you can help at this crucial early stage by simply joining our weekly video calls and share your ideas of what the ideal community looks like to you. This is your chance to help create something that could help conservation on a global level, so I really hope you can join us. Just imagine what we could do together as a community!

Add your ideas to the 'Building our community' room on WildHub and join our WildHub Weekly calls to share your ideas! Every Thursday at 10.00am and 5.30pm (London time); press the 'watch' button in the 'Our community' channel to be notified of the active link to join these calls.

WildHub Community Manager, WildTeam UK

My background is mainly in species conservation, education and capacity development. For several years, I researched mother-young interactions in gorillas and chimpanzees, in captivity and the wild. After that, I worked for three years in Indonesia, where I developed and implemented youth ambassador and community engagement programmes on local and regional scales. These programmes are aimed at building conservation capacity and promoting stewardship. I currently conduct my PhD research on the professional development of conservation professionals and work as Community Manager at WildHub.
