I want to do a conservation expedition in the country of Honduras, I want to document, gather information, photos and put together a list of species of native plants and animals and possibly any new species not yet described.
But I am not sure how I would go about doing so as for securing funding and to act as a replacement job.
I was signing up for a £5 monthly adoption on WWF but I googled it and apparently it is better to support smaller charities as more money ends up going towards conservation of the animal, so does anyone know any better charities for amur leopards as an alternative?
I asked this in r/scuba as I couldn't find a more appropriate sub for this question, please point me there if there is one!
I'm camped on a fairly remote beach and there's lots of rubbish here unfortunately. I want to take as much out with me as possible. The issue is there's several washed up ropes and other fishing detritus on the shore that I can't get out as they're partly buried deep in the sand or stuck around rocks. I don't have a shovel and I'm not strong enough to pull them out. Is it best to cut them off as close as I can, so that if it is eventually washed out there's much less of it floating around, or should I just leave it because it's essentially secured? It's very obvious these ropes have washed up. They're not there on purpose as someone suggested.
I'm in western australia, I'm only here today and alone, so organising a beach cleanup doesn't seem feasible. Maybe I should just contact the council?
I blog at Midlife On Earth and am part of the Climate Change Collective - a group of bloggers across the world who write and share monthly posts on climate issues that are personal to us. This month we've been discussing the loss of green spaces in urban areas and I wrote a piece about recent events in the UK, where trees are being chopped down by councils for obscure reasons.
I'd love to know if anyone has seen trees disappear in your area for reasons of health and safety, regeneration, town planning or other reasons?!
I'm currently in high school. I don't know what I'd like to major in yet, but I enjoy working outside, and working around animals. I just visited a conservation park in Ohio called The Wilds, and I was hugely impressed by what they've done there. My visit stoked my interest in the field. I think I'd like to work there or somewhere similar in the future, but I don't know what to major in for conservation, and I don't entirely know what all they do there. Any tips for where to start?
P.S., I don't think I want to research animals or work in science. I'd rather do work like animal feeding, care, trail and park management (and that sort of thing).

Where is the best place to get into conservation or ecology and how would one succeed in trying to break out into the field
Hi there - new to this group (just joined). My partner and I are in the process of creating a series of videos showcasing the plight of endangered species around the world. They will be uploaded to YouTube. We also hope to raise funds in order to keep this project running, and to help support some of the brave groups that are working to conserve and protect those who are unable to do it themselves. To this end, we have started a Patreon page. I need to ask if I can post links to these videos in this community.
Im in high-school currently, but college and jobs are rapidly approaching. What summer job would keep me out in nature? Preferably science based
Sorry if this isn't the right sub to ask about this. I'll be starting a MS program for Conservation and Restoration Science in the fall. I wouldn't be able to keep my current full-time job, so I'm trying to figure out what positions I should apply for. My BS was in Graphical Engineering and I also have an AA in Climate Studies. I have a couple years of field experience with habitat restoration as well. What if any remote jobs could I apply for? The option for working part-time or with a flexible schedule would be preferred. Could there be an options like that involving GIS? I have some experience with it but I would still consider myself a beginner.
