work your dream

job with wildlife

we’re here to support you in starting and sustaining your career with wildlife.
Whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been about the traps for a while,
you’re in the right place!

✨start here✨

When I left school, I didn’t know careers with wildlife were an option – let alone connected that as something I could be interested in. Although I didn’t do much research around careers at that stage of my life, this industry is also very new and for this reason there are serious growing pains that wildlifers wrangle with every day. For example, there is –

❌No clear career path for people interested in working with wildlife
❌No consistency between names, pay, jobs in various environmental streams, and
❌No expectation of pay early on, creating a privileged space with lower equality of access and diversity of ideas and participants.

But here at #itsawildlife, we’re here to support one another on this journey and discuss industry-wide issues like these to reduce gatekeeping, imposter syndrome and burnout and promote equality of access, diversity of participation and conservation of global biodiversity.

And if I can do it – so can you! You can land your dream job with wildlife and follow your passion to create a career you love. You can also pivot, shift and change your mind as many times as you like to follow a pathway that aligns with your passions and strengths.

So, what are you waiting for? Let’s navigate this crazy space together 🙌💞 and live the wild life! ✨

are you struggling to get your foot in the door and find paid work with wildlife? or searching for strategies to battle burnout, maintain your momentum, magnify your impact – and create a more sustainable and successful career?

so, what’s the next step?
