Tolga Aktas: From being an electrical engineer to working in conservation The Outdoors Fix

    • Wilderness

My guest in this episode is Tolga Aktas. His story is one for those of you who are thinking of changing your career to be outdoors and in nature more.

Tolga is a conservation biologist, writer and photographer who has just finished his degree in Animal Biology.

His studies and love of animals and nature have taken him to Africa, Borneo and all over the UK, doing field work and volunteering on conservation projects.

But his current life is a complete transformation from what it was a few years ago.

Tolga grew up in south London and admits that he got involved with gang culture and left school with poor grades

He then trained to be an electrical engineer and spent years working in a 9-5 job in London.

I travelled to Highnam Woods, near where Tolga’s now living in Gloucestershire, to find out how he completely changed his life and career.

If would be fantastic if you could rate, review and subscribe to the podcast – it really helps other people discover it – and please feel free to spread the word to your family and friends!

Thanks!
