The Wildwork

Wildlife and Wilderness Workers' Network

The Wildwork is a growing global community of people who work and volunteer for wildlife. It was created by myself and a group of friends and colleagues from the Life Sciences department at the University of Manchester.

The aim of the network is to foster positive connectivity and support between people, projects and organisations around the world. Its current home is the Facebook group, 'Wildlife Workers' Network'. This is the place to go to find or advertise jobs, volunteer positions and internships, or ask questions from fellow Wildworkers - the hivemind will answer! It's a great place to get advice and early-career support from your peers.

On our website and social media channels, you can find inside stories from conservation projects and animal sanctuaries, testimonies from Wildworkers, and news from the field.
