Conservation Careers Podcast

Nov 9, 2020

Have you ever met someone and wondered in awe about how they have done so much in such a short space of time? That's a feeling I got when I first met Elliott Connor, who's our guest on the podcast today.

Elliott is a 17 year old Australian popular science writer, presenter, producer, and so many other things. He's best known for founding the International Environmental NGO Human Nature Projects, which supports volunteers across 104 countries and established that within just the last 15 months alone.

His life goal is to reframe our human relationship with the natural world and his work has been recognised with various honours and awards and accolades. I'm not going to list them here, there's quite a few of them!

During this podcast, we talk about Human Nature Projects, David Attenborough, how to succeed as an introvert in a movement like this, and how to talk to Donald Trump about wildlife and lots more besides. It's a wide ranging fun and really inspiring chat. Enjoy.
