Hello everyone! Thanks so much for checking out my Patreon. 

When people ask me what I do, I always have to take a step back and think about how to answer that question. I guess the best answer is "anything I can." 
I am a conservationist. I work at the Amphibian Foundation, a nonprofit tackling the global amphibian crisis. I also volunteer my time with several conservation groups, such as the Turtle Conservancy, theTurtleRoom, & the Georgia Reptile Society to help with their social media pages and with various field work throughout the year. All of that, in addition to my own educational social media, animal rescue, field surveys, and article writing.  
I take on a lot, and it's not easy, but I can't imagine my life without it. Sometimes it holds me back from living a certain kind of life, because I've come to terms with the fact that I was born on this planet at this time when it needs us now more than ever to save it.

We are in the midst of the 6th mass extinction event our planet has seen! The last time we lost species at such an accelerated rate? 65 million years ago, during the Cretaceous Extinction, and this time, WE are the asteroid.

But we also have a chance to help. Conservation is one of the most important things anyone on Earth can be contributing to. The species we are pushing towards extinction are VITAL to the balance of our planet, and we will ultimately suffer if they are lost. Sadly, conservation is a very difficult path for anyone to take, both emotionally, physically, and financially. It's not easy for a conservationist to make a living, and that deters a lot of people from making conservation their career. It's pressing, because right now we need more conservationists than ever before, but people just aren't willing to sacrifice their lives for it. I get that. I am never going to give up on conservation, but I am definitely struggling.

I work SO hard every single day to do everything I can for animals and conservation-- usually just one educational Instagram story takes me two hours! An article about a conservation issue can take up to five. I am determined to do whatever I can with this life I've got, while getting my messages out others, and I hope to reach my fellow warriors in a positive, empowering and hopeful way that will give them the tools to spread the word so that we can assemble an entire generation of people who love, appreciate and aspire to protect the incredible creatures we share our world with.

So why Patreon? In addition to being able to support what I do to create important, meaningful content AND the conservation work I do out in the field, you'll be able to join an even more close-knit community here of animal lovers, keepers, and savers. I can't always answer all the questions I get on my Instagram or other platforms, but Patrons will get one-on-one access to me whenever they need to chat! In addition to more content, more pictures, updates and lots of goodies! Thank you so much!!

If I could pay my rent, buy my groceries, care for my animals and put gas in my car while doing what I loved I'd be one happy Homo sapien.
