Lonely Conservationists is a family people in the conservation industry who face a variety of different hurdles establishing themselves, or living a sustainable life within the conservation industry.

Conservationists are people who dedicate their life to saving animals, plants, ecosystems and our environment. On paper it seems like the coolest job on the planet, working outside, seeing amazing wildlife and contributing to the future or our natural world. Like any industry, however, there is more to it than what you see on the surface.

Many young conservationists are putting in a full time's job worth of work into causes they are passionate about without receiving any pay. Others have full time jobs but are burning out in their position due to lack of support, minimal funding and long hours. You can find both of these types of people in remote and isolated areas, many times forfeiting relationships that they could have been building in cities and urban environments.

Lonely Conservationists aims to save those who are saving the world. We aim to provide a supportive community where struggling individuals from the conservation industry can share their stories, feel connected with other like minded individuals and receive the support they deserve for safeguarding the future of our natural resources.

Your support will go towards providing a means to facilitate a positive change for those in the conservation industry. We are striving towards the creation of global events, ambassador programs and mental health resources for individuals involved in conservation. Most paramount, we wish to create a community to support burnt out conservationists, and provide them with a refuge like they are providing refuges for the wildlife they are saving each and every day.

On behalf of Lonely Conservationists everywhere, I thank you for your generous support. You really are saving the world savers.

I can pay someone to create a logo for our community (Does this also mean that we can create Lonely Clothes in the future? Maybe...)  and start to pay the blog editor who is currently a Lonely Conservationist in Indonesia. Although she is currently happy with generously donating her time, she deserves to be paid for her work!
