Fantastic listen for all budding conservationists!

For any recent conservation graduate and lover of all wildlife, the process of leaving uni and looking to break into the industry can be overwhelming. There are so many possible careers out there but it is difficult to find the right opportunities, and to know what to do do prepare yourself for that dream job.

This podcast provides practical advice and inspiration in equal measure. Nick has a huge range of top guests speaking about there own experiences within conservation, which is invaluable to all budding conservationists. I cant recommend this podcast highly enough to anyone who is interested in wildlife conservation and for anyone who is looking to broaden their wild horizons.

Very Inspiring!

In conservation (especially when starting your career) it can be quite overwhelming when you see people who have interesting jobs and are working all over the world doing amazing things. But often it is hard to understand how they got there.

That is where this podcast is so great, it offers an insight not only into the careers of these individuals but also a glimpse into how they got to where they are and therefore offers some great inspiration and tips for others to follow who are looking to achieve similar things in their own career.
