Modern day wildlife conservation | Nick Bubb | TEDxZuriberg

Nick Bubb gives us an overview of the state of wildlife conservation in the world today. He explains why there is still a lot to be done and how governments, companies and citizens need to work together to protect our environment and critically endangered species. Wildlife conservation provides jobs, improves livelihoods and helps to address the effects of environmental and social changes.

Nick Bubb heads up Global Development at Fauna & Flora International (FFI), the world's oldest international wildlife conservation charity. FFI supports a great number of conservation programs in 47 countries, which integrate scientific expertise and local community engagement.
Nick's varied background includes significant time spent as an: engineer, professional ocean racer, sports sponsorship expert and wealth manager. After an expedition to Antarctica in 2012 and seeing the first-hand effects of climate change, Nick decided to leave the world of financial management behind and combine all his skills, experiences & networks, and dedicate himself to environmental causes. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

Biggest Tip for Careers in Wildlife Biology and Ecology | Fancy Scientist

Are you interested in a career in wildlife biology or ecology? I’m a wildlife biologist who graduated with their Ph.D. in 2012. Having been on the job market, I know what it’s like to get a permanent position. Here’s the tip I wish I had before I went to graduate school.

Discover how to understand wildlife biology jobs so that you can prepare for the job you want without wasting time and money:

If you are thinking of becoming a wildlife biologist, you already know that you need to get a least a bachelor’s degree. Unfortunately, most aspiring wildlife biologists make the mistake of focusing only on their degree requirements, but if you don’t know what type of job you want and where you want to work, you’ll miss out on key skills and experiences that you need to get the job of your dreams. That’s why I created a spreadsheet that will allow you to study the job boards, stay organized, and deconstruct the education, skills, and experiences needed to get you the job you want without wasting your time or money. It’s called the Wildlife Job Tracker, and it’s free. You can download it in this blog post:
