Conservation Guide is an eco-startup tackling biodiversity loss by making conservation work more accessible to people of any experience level.
Our platform acts as 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.
We want to achieve this by making global conservation efforts:
Provide tools that help you find the best and most responsible organisations to work with.
Make it easier to get involved in conservation, no matter your experience level
Provide a platform that connects a community of committed organisations and conservationists.
