Over the past year, I’ve published a variety of articles quite literally from around the world. It’s been a real eye opener too.. From coral reefs to the rainforest, vast deserts to the arctic and many places inbetween, these are the true stories of conservation in the field.

Not only have I learned a huge amount about conservation; but there’s been slightly cringe worthy tips on removing bot flies, battling mosquitoes, packing kit and the day to day struggle to live and work some of the worlds most challenging places.

Overall though, there is an overwhelmingly positive message, and that is what I want to share. So please do browse some of the articles and let me know your favourites!
