Eat, sleep, breathe ecology: why I volunteer on top of a full time job

A brown slow worm slithering over heather. Text reads: East, sleep, breathe ecology. Why I volunteer on top of a full time job

Like most people in the Ecology sector, I've done my fair share of volunteering. Long before I took the plunge into the world of consultancy, I volunteered at a wildlife hospital, at Kew Gardens, at TRAFFIC (the wildlife trade monitoring network) and I’ve taken part in various voluntary animal research behaviour projects. On top of a full-time job, there are times when I question why I do it but it feels good to be helping, in a tiny way, towards the conservation of nature.
