Hello! Thank you for checking out my blog.
My name is Jess, I’m 24 years old, and I am a wildlife conservationist with experience and qualifications in writing, photography, filmmaking, editing, animal behaviour and conservation.
After graduating in Journalism, I quickly decided that I didn’t want to be the ‘no morals’ journalist that I was told I had to be if I wanted to survive in the cutthroat environment of media newsrooms.
Instead I knew that I wanted to make a positive difference in this world.
I then proceeded to spend two years travelling back and forth to South Africa, whilst studying wildlife filmmaking, gaining my nature guide qualification and becoming a wilderness first aider.
I also worked as a cameraperson 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 have 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.
I have developed a new video-on-demand platform purely for natural history documentaries, which you can access at http://wildlifeconservationchannel.com/
Follow my posts to follow my life, educating people around the world about true conservation and my adventures through Africa.
Trying to change the world, one blog post at a time.
