Our team of expert conservation planners are here to help

What can our conservation planning support do for your team?

We can help you, your team, and your partners develop stronger conservation plans to increase impact, raise more funds, and sustain your conservation organisation over the long term.

We know the positive benefits of stronger conservation planning through personal experience over the last 20 years of conservation work. Starting with a 4 person team with no affiliation and £3,000 in the bank, we have used our conservation planning skills to create 2 organisations (WildTeam UK and WildTeam Bangladesh) that have in total employed over 100 staff, raised over £10 million in conservation funds, and helped tigers recover from acute poaching pressure in Bangladesh.  Since then we developed a Strategy Development for Wildlife Conservation best practice which is used by conservationists around the world to help save sea turtles, wolves, bears, and a wide range of wild areas.

How much does it cost?

Our conservation planning support costs £55/hour.

 

That cost is made up of £30/hour for salaries and administration + £25/hour conservation fee to support our charitable aims. That means when you help us, you are also helping other teams all over the world achieve more conservation impact.

 

We can provide a lot of our conservation planning support remotely, but we are happy to come to your place of work as long as you can cover the costs of our accommodation, transport, and carbon.

 

Example costs:

  • £220 to review a draft strategy

  • £2,200 to facilitate a multi-day workshop to create a conservation strategy

  • £22,000 to conduct and document a lessons learned survey, or create a best practice
