Why did we start Conservation Guide?

We want to:


Protect & promote biodiversity

The world has lost 58% of its biodiversity in the last 40 years. Conservation Guide makes it easy for people to get involved in the solution.


Lower barriers to entry

Our goal is to provide opportunities that help you become a better conservationist no matter your skill or experience level.


Improve opportunities

Life can be hard for conservationists if they can't find suitable opportunities. Our plan is to work with conservationists and key partners to improve their quality and quantity.


Increase trust and transparency

Conservationists rightly have a lack of trust in many volunteering organisations. We want to fix that by encouraging transparency and only listing quality experiences that pass our selection criteria.
