Hello and welcome to my blog!
My name is Jess and I’m a 26 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’m currently working with WWF, Netflix and Silverback on the new documentary natural history series with a difference, Our Planet.
What’s different about my blog?
I strive to write articles from a personal point of view, focusing largely on events and experiences that I have gone through first-hand, thereby giving you a unique and honest perspective on the natural world.
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.
Follow my posts to follow my life. Join me on my adventures through nature as I strive to help people around the world understand true conservation.
