WILDHUB CONSERVATION COMMUNITY
WHAT IS WILDHUB?
WildHub is a global community of conservation professionals aimed at creating a more diverse and inclusive conservation sector to drive innovation, collaboration, and social justice. We opened our virtual doors in March 2020, responding to the increased need of conservationists worldwide to connect, exchange knowledge and support each other online. Since then we have grown to a community of over 4,000 members from 140 countries in three years.
EMPOWERING CONSERVATIONISTS: THE WILDHUB STORY
HOW DO MEMBERS INTERACT?
WildHub is both member-led and free to join. Being member-led means that the members decide what they want to talk about, and each contribution has equal prominence. Free membership ensures a diverse community of like-minded professionals who are given equal opportunities to voice their knowledge and experiences. Specifically, WildHub enables you to:
Advance your career through training, funding, and networking opportunities.
Improve your and others' conservation work through the sharing of ideas, problems, failures, and solutions;
Build personal resilience through the additional social support and encouragement provided by peers;

WildHub has given me the opportunity to see how many others worldwide are not giving up on conservation. This has inspired me greatly to keep going with my own conservation work.

WHAT DO WE BELIEVE?
As conservation professionals, we should not have to be restricted by conservation organisations’ policies and culture before we can realise our potential for the benefit of our own careers and the wildlife we care about.
We believe that we can achieve our potential through learning from, helping, and working with others in our WildHub community space.

Welcoming to people of all kinds
Generous in our praise and support of others
Positive in our interactions and our contributions
Open about our motivations

Responsible for the effects we have on others by our words and actions
WHAT DO WILDHUB MEMBERS REPRESENT?
