About Jess

Hello and welcome to my blog!

My name is Jess and I’m a 27 year old wildlife conservationist with experience and qualifications in writing, photography, filmmaking, animal behaviour and conservation.

What’s my story?

After graduating with a degree in Journalism, I quickly decided that I wanted to use my newly gained skills to make a positive difference in this world and change it for the better.

I then proceeded to spend two years in South Africa, whilst studying wildlife filmmaking, becoming a qualified nature guide and beginning my wildlife photography journey.

I also worked as a camerawoman for a documentary about responsible conservation and the truth behind the cub-petting industry, as well as working with the last remaining wild white lions in the Timbavati whilst managing their conservation volunteer programme.

I’ve had my articles and photographs published by Africa Geographic, BBC Wildlife, BBC Earth, Ethical Surrey, True Activist, the Conservation Journal, Truth Theory, Conscious Life and the Elephant Journal. All photos featured on my blog have been taken by me, unless otherwise stated.

  1. I’m a fan. Thank you for your enduring expose. I know firsthand how difficult it is to witness the careless nature of man vs. beast and nature in general. Continue your work!


  2. Hi Jess !
    I’m an enthusiast of the life of bumblebees (especially about of their flight), it could be a real pleasure to have your connection on Linkedin website.
    Greetings from Italy!
