About Us

We are an eco-startup tackling biodiversity loss

Conservation Guide is an eco-startup tackling biodiversity loss by making conservation work more accessible to people of any experience level.

Our platform is a marketplace for quality conservation experiences, allowing people to search, review and book opportunities with environmental organisations around the world.

We were founded in 2014 by Justin & Will, two friends from Nottingham University who share a passion for the living planet.
