About Jess

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.

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.

  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!
