Navigating life as a lonely conservationist with Jessie Panazzolo

Navigating life as a lonely conservationist with Jessie Panazzolo
Are you feeling lost in the sea of opportunities or grappling with self-doubt as a conservationist? You’re not alone. In the world of conservation, there’s often a glamorized portrayal of the work, with images of breath-taking landscapes and exotic wildlife dominating the narrative. But often behind the scenes, the reality can be very different —a reality of frustration, isolation, and the struggle for recognition and validation. Jessie Panazzolo (pronouns: she/her) is a passionate conservationist from Australia, who stumbled across this truth and thought she must be the only person who’d ever experienced this. In a last-ditch effort to find meaning in what felt like an impossible career path, Jessie created the blog Lonely Conservationists to share her experiences. This was met with an overwhelmingly positive response – a community of global conservationists who had felt similar invalidation. Through her blog, Jessie has turned this challenging experience into a source of empowerment and solidarity for conservationists worldwide. In a world where the road to conservation can be a lonely and arduous one, Jessie shares her story and advice to overcome obstacles and create meaningful change for our environment. #ITSAWILDLIFE #itsawildlife is an online platform supporting you to start and sustain your career with wildlife.
